I was batting this around with Steve at the No Runny Eggs today.
With all the hoopla of the redesign of Michelle Malkin's blog, the point that is missed is that it is no longer a blog.
Click this link and you are not at a blog. There is a heading on the right that says "Blog," but it isn't a blog. It is a list of headlines with links to articles. A lot like the JSOnline website offers headlines with links to their articles.
I expect a blog to be a series of posts on a webpage without the need to separately click links to read the content. To illustrate the difference, the JSOnline website also offers NewsWatch, A Weblog of today's local news. Once in NewsWatch, all the content is available without further links. That is a blog. Sorry, but michellemalkin.com is not a blog anymore.
Malkin is more interested in hits to her links, than having her content read. I postulate that this is a keystone of the Pajama's Media business model (can you spell IPO?). I disapprove. Perhaps another enterprising blogger will put all of Malkin's content in one place to bypass this silliness.
