Korea Life Blog - Korea Times

The Korea Times has run an article about Korean blogs. Mine is mentioned with a screenshot. If you pick up a copy, please save it for me. I'd like to see it and I'm too far away from the nearest newsstand. I'm confused though as to whether it's in today's paper or tomorrow's. The writer told me on e-mail that it would be in tomorrow's paper but the article is already online here: The Medium Is the Message in K-Blogs.

I just read it, and all I can say is it's boring. Especially the first two paragraphs. The article doesn't do anything to make anyone interested in Korean blogs or what they are like. It's basically a run down on what blogs are. It reminds me of exactly why I started this website. When I first decided to come to Korea, I did a lot of searching on the web. I found a lot of mundane information about Korea but hardly anything about everyday life and what it was really like to live here day to day. I decided I wanted to make a site that could bring the experience to life.

However, that's a pretty funny screenshot taken from this section, I must say. And I just checked my stats. Over 1200 hits today, 500 more than usual, so I guess people some people did get interested. Must have been the funny screenshot that did it. I just think the article could have been livelier.
