Kristie and I were talking about this recently, and we are both in agreement. Blogs, at least in our circle of friends, are going the way of the dinosaurs. Now, I’m not talking about the blog format in general. There are plenty of sites using the blog format that are headed in the opposite direction. I’m talking specifically about personal blogs.
I’m just as guilty as anyone; my last post was almost 3 months ago and it was for a class.
The culprit: micro-blogging. Twitter and Facebook updates are the new blog. It makes sense though. Who wants to spend their time writing out posts when they can just as easily (and more often more easily) make a tiny update.
Just a thought…
