Has Twitter replaced blogging?
I’m seeing a lot fewer “I’m so annoyed by that guy who cut me off”-type posts recently. Facebook stati and Twitter updates (which I just refuse to call Tweets) are almost exclusively made up of this kind of content. So, why blog?
I encourage all to keep their blogs, even if you only post once week, a fortnight, a month. From time to time, you’re going to have an idea which can’t be easily communicated in 180 characters, and when that time comes, you’ll be glad to click that rusty blogger.com link.
The good news is that when I get an RSS notification that a new post is up, it’s likely going to be something more than a one-liner. Maybe constant communication will actually force us to become better writers.
That being stated, here’s a funny video.
