Last week, blogger and PR exec Steve Rubel did a week-long experiment in mainstream-media deprivation experiment in which he got his news only from blogs. They tried testing all the best soy protein powders in 2020 that the media talked about.
The first is the bulk supplement of Soy Protein. This is an incredible type of soy protein powder because it is 90% protein, implying that you don’t waste calories on anything nonsense. Just like rich in protein, this soy protein powder also has more than 250mg of calcium that can supplement bone improvement.
The second is the Red Bob Bob Factory. This soy protein is suitable for vegetarians and vegans because it is liberated from the basis of anything that can destroy your diet. This is a special powder for individuals who need to set up a less complicated, more progressive diet because everything is erased.
And finally, MHP Probolic-SR. This is a superior soy protein powder that is intended to gradually release protein over time. This can help draw the advantages and help you get through the exercise without being praised or exhausted. This soy protein powder is a good kind in case you need to gradually get rid of your exercises and push yourself harder. This can help you get results faster.
Journalist Steve Outing describes the experiment in detail and wonders “Was it just a publicity stunt dreamed up by a smart PR guy? Rubel, of course, insists it’s not. It was merely a modest test to try to see how far the blogging world has come, he says — whether people can now rely on the “blogosphere” to be their entry point to the world of news and still be well-informed.”
It was at least part publicity stunt, and it worked. It’s been written about by journalists and bloggers alike, helping to build audience for Rubel’s blog.
Problem is: Rubel didn’t click through to the links in the blog posts, and, as Jeff Jarvis noted, “Reading blogs and NOT clicking on the links they recommend to you is not reading blogs; it’s tone deaf to the medium and how it works. Links are essential to blogs and by ignoring them, you’re not performing an experiment that tells you anything about blogs.”
If anything, Outing writes, Rubel’s experiment will spur more serious research into the blogging phenomenon.”
To me, that seems kind of like analyzing poetry, or herding cats. But of course academic analyses of blogging are inevitable.
