Can we authenticate or get reviewed of our blogs? August 13, 2007

Posted by Null in About Blogs.

Do blog authors have any authencity of their published expressions or journals? There are thousands of trusted blogs which are read by millions. But are they really a legitimate source of information and ideas? WordPress, MySpace, Typepad and Blogger have encouraged many proletarians as regular authors and  the information we are recieving might not be accurate or acceptable. For instance, a CEO’s blog does not necessarily symbolize that the information on his/her blog is valid. Till now I have not heard about any weblogs that you can call it as a legitimate source of information. Even the prominent Wikipedia raises the question of authenticity.

I wonder if it can be possible to have some sort of peer reviewed blogs similar to the peer reviewed journals we have in academia. If that can be made possible, it would have been easier to identify the legitimate weblogs. More importantly, reviewed blogs could have been used for further referencing in other forms of social media.
