It depends. I'm blogging since about two years at
musik.klarmachen-zum-aendern.de about free culture with focus on music.
I'm getting meanwhile a medium amount of visitors, but most do not visit
that site because they want to be informed about free content. That's
becase content _is_ free. Maybe not legally, but you cannot prevent
digital data from being copied.
I think a blog focussing just on public domain content might be a little
bit limited. We should not fragment our forces to much. There are
already a lot of blogs out there focussing on various aspects of cultur.
So why not just join there and add your ideas there?
