So.... when you look at blogs... you find them to be the sole and  
original composition of a single author?  because I find this a  
curious position because I find so very little in the world that fits  
this position of 'mine in the first place'.   I mean your book which  
is coming out on this topic has to be derivative of the original  
texts, laws, and practices combined with your opinions, so I'm  
wondering what the base of the concept of originality, this is not to  
say that blogs are not copyrightable... the question is ... whose  
copyright is there on what page.
