Are Blogs a New Narrative Genre?

In asking this question I am not referring to "fiction blogs" or "fictional blogs"—but rather to the inherent narrativity of personal blogs as a genre involved in temporal progression, and subject to hindsight and retrospection, rereading, expectations, suspense, surprise turns, etc. Personal blogs are, in a way, the narrative trace of our life online, and it is not out of the question that they may enhance the narrativity of life itself. I'd appreciate further observations and insights on this issue.

Some further thoughts on this topic (in Spanish) can be found here: "Blogs and the Narrativity of Experience / Los blogs y la narratividad de la experiencia."

(This is the first discussion in the Narrative Theory social network group I started today).

PS . The group didn't survive January. BlogCatalog suppresses groups with few members, and although I posted news about this group to the Narrative List, only one blog registered... it seems the time for narratological blogs isn't ripe yet...  So it goes.
