Or are blogs becoming dinosaurs? It seems as if everyone has moved to the frantic single line, one picture twitching frenetic worlds of Twitter, Facebook and all.
I'm as much to blame. Facebook is easy. I can access everyone from old school friends and family around the world to my favourite bloggers and long time internet friends all in one place. It's a lot easier posting one line than an entire, well crafted and thoughtful blog post. It takes longer to read a full blog post.
Is the world speeding up or are we simply a species where the novelty wears off and we move on to the next trend. What will we be doing when Twitter is boring and Facebook is obsolete? Which may be fairly soon, since the recent changes on Facebook are making it as much fun as standing in a busy queue!
Who knows... maybe the next trend will be to buy pretty paper and write real letters for a change. Remember them? Did you ever buy the fancy writing paper simply to own it? I did. I still have some of that. :-) Paper that inspired you simply by its beauty.
Blogging at least had beauty... Twitter and the rest do not.
