A great post today from Jemima Pereira, of Speak Stiltedly and Wear a Yellow Shirt blog. (That's a Star Trek joke, BTW.) She looks at publishing's shrinking mid-list and makes some comparisons to blogging. It's a short read, but thought-provoking.
As for Half-Bakered, I've never labored under the illusion of being "mid-list." In publishing terms, I'm a quirky boutique small press: not well known but treasured by the few that read it.
