I really can’t remember which I got into first, twitter or this blog, but they were within a few weeks of each other about a year and a half ago. Each seemed to have their own specific purpose; tweets for short quips or questions to a relatively small audience and blog posts for more elaborate thoughts and could include pictures and video clips.
Much has changed since those co-starts of social networking, and now twitter looks like it’s leaving blogging in the dust! It seems that it has so conditioned all of us that use it regularly to keep all of our thoughts in 140 character brackets… and that longer, more thoughtful (or though provoking) muses are occurring less and less. I don’t blog anywhere near as much as I used to, but most days I use twitter at least 6 or more times.
Even when I do post to this blog and tweet the link, my reads are way down… I guess that I’d like to think that my writting is still pretty good, it’s just that people aren’t that into reading the posts like they used to. Stats are down, comments just don’t come like they used to… I’m left to wonder if anyone is into this stuff anymore.
Hello? Is anyone out there? (echo effect would be really cool here…)
