How about .blog top level domain name?

While I was searching for a domain name for a new blog I am planning to start, it just came to my thought that it will be great if we can have .blog as the top level domain name. Blogs have taken mainstream and personal blogs are becoming very popular. Its very difficult to find a domain name using .com or any other suitable TLDs for the blogs.

After looking in google for few minutes I have found that few others have already written about it.

    Interesting idea however I think we will see less of less of blogs in 2008. I think that possibly it may be a good idea to have a .blog but most of the blogs that I personally find worth reading are from those who own their own studio so they will simply add a blog link on their main studio page anyway.

    With the rise of social networking coming back in a big way most web users will use such sites as Facebook and Virb to name just a few to write their blogs or personal notes.

    It’s a good idea and there is no real reason not to have a .blog but I feel that it’s probably not worth the time.

    I do agree that social networking sites offering blogs to the users is really a good point, but I think its worth to have a top level domain name as .blog with all the popularity and buzz surrounding blogs. I am pretty convinced that there will be a great number of people willing to take the domains as finding a new domain is a bit difficult these days with the existing top level domains, especially when one is looking for personal blog.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
