The Rise of Recession Blogs...

We're all getting killed these days, and it's only human nature to want to vent. Our 401ks are decimated, and if we haven't yet been laid-off then we're at least nervous about facing that Day of Reckoning somewhere on the horizon. Heck, even the Wall Street Journal published a piece yesterday saying that there is a 20% chance we're falling into a Great Depression.

In these times of plunging stock markets, job anxiety, and bill-paying paranoia, a new phenomenon is taking shape that may come to define the current economic crisis for future historians... the rise of "Recession Blogs".
