Joel Achenbach hosts legions of squatters
Funny story about blogging by Joel Achenbach in yesterday's Washington Post. (from Romenesko, Jarvis) I paid a visit to Achenbach's blog and was blown away by the avalanche of comments following each post. More than 300 comments alone on a post about real estate in California. As Achenbach points out, many of the comments pay only fleeting attention to his posts. The long and short: His blog is taking on a life of its own.
Achenbach is a gifted writer with a keen eye for the quirks of American society. At some point he might consider turning his attention to the community that's taking shape on his own blog.
