I’m kind of slow on the uptake on this one. But it suddenly occurred to me that blogging is totally dead in the water. By “blogging,” I mean the concept of someone starting a blog and then, with a lot of hard work making name for themselves in this or that field. Blogging gave a lot of undiscovered talent a new venue to feature their work and it notion had a good rum of about a decade.
But no more.
Now, the energy that would otherwise be put into blogging now exerts itself with Twitter, podcasts and Facebook. It’s an interesting change. It’s interesting that something that was so common, so powerful for what seemed a long time simply doesn’t, in real terms, exist anymore.
I have repeatedly explain in great depth a new social media platform that would aspire, at least, to bring back some for of blogging. But since I have no money, can’t code and don’t want to learn, it’s not like it’s going to happen.
