Looking forward to your deeper insights about this!

It may be that blogs are the new version of published opinion pieces (building upon newspaper pieces and Thomas Paine's Common Sense). Not many people write to their elected representatives or their local paper's editors (and fewer still get published) so when an effort is made by anyone that opinion becomes overweighted. Blogs are a convenient and effective outlet for 'ordinary' people who care enough to express their opinions. Most people don't make the effort to develop and articulate their positions - the blogosphere is like a magnet for those who do with a low barrier to entry.
