Why blogs aren’t as important as they used to be.

Remember back, oh… six or so years ago?

Everyone had a blog. Every single person on the face of the planet has a WordPress, Movable Type, Livejournal, Blogger, etc etc… and now no one does.

Why?

Social networks have killed blogging. Simple as that. Most of the little things we posted on our blogs, we can now use Twitter and Facebook and cast a wider net. So why blog?

This year, I’ve decided to change my thinking about blogging. It’s something I’ve long enjoyed, but never get around to. So those little things, you’ll see on facebook and twitter, but you’ll start to see more and more long format things here.

Hopefully.
