Time Magazine Says The Blogosphere Deserves To Be ‘Person Of The Year’

Filed under: Publications — @ December 18, 2006

Surprise choice for Time’s “Person Of The Year”–YOU!

“The person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill, and embodied what was important about the year, for better or for worse.”

That’s the qualification for someone to be named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” and now the magazine has announced who their winner is for 2006.

The editors at Time went the unconventional route when they chose those of us who are on the cutting edge of information technology by participating in the ever-expanding blogosphere as the “person” that deserved this year’s distinction. In other words, YOU are the winner of this highly-respected title in 2006 as a participant in this cutting edge technology. CONGRATULATIONS!

A recent Pew Research survey found that while only 8 percent, or 12 million Americans, of the Internet population currently has a blog, an amazingly high 39 percent of them, or 57 million Americans, state they read blogs regularly. Time knows those numbers will undoubtedly continue to go up in 2007 and beyond.

What an honor to be a part of this group of people who are trying to make a difference using blogs to provide high-quality news, information and commentary to help educate and encourage others about weight loss and low-carb. That’s why I was thrilled when FOXNews.com named my blog as a Top 10 health site a couple of week’s ago. Slowly but surely the blogosphere is influencing culture in a big way and it’s getting noticed more and more!

LOL!) and how this acknowledgement of the blogging format will only increase the number of people exposed to the positive message of the low-carb lifestyle in 2007 and beyond.
