Listening to some radio Group of DJs talk about their blogging and lack of it, and how “Facebook has taken over” , and just shaking my head. Fist , it isnt Facebook , but Twitter (for me). Which is frustrating, because I am well aware of how far Twitter falls short of providing the same value that blogging has. But what makes this frustration worse is that I myslef have allowed my “other Social Media” to bring my blogging to a slow drip. The complaints I have just go out over Twitter and Facebook, and assuage my need to rant for which blogging formerly provided the channel. I’ve got to find a means of discipline to keep my blogging channel alive and passionate. I don’t want to get myself accustomed to posting all shorter, and oftentimes inevitably pithier stuff. I enjoy writing, and don’t want my skills to atrophy.
I also have a Tumblr blog, which also works as a channel to post the reactions that I can’t fit into a Twitter post. I should look at some tools to jump over to WordPress as easily as I can to Tumblr. That “ShareAHolic bookmark is what I had been using to sling a post over onto Tumblr, and the WordPress connector there has some problems I need to address.
