Blogging is NOT Dead


I have been taught an important lesson. Blogging is NOT dead.


There still are many friends of mine -- yes, even Farcebook weinies among them -- who do both. And there even are some who still blog without resorting to the shorter quickness of Farcebook.


The important thing is that we communicate. I don't necessarily GET the relative quickness, convenience and in some cases the shallowness of Farcebook over blogging.


But who am I to question it? It is a phenomenon. People have less disposable time. They have less time to say things in. They are becoming more economical in terms of what they do with their disposable time.


Still, I blog to get the life experience of others on the planet. And I will continue to try to do that. To each his or her own. Blogging AND Farcebooking are where I want and need to be.

  4. I WILL check out your blog. Blogging is like a good, popular play whose tenure has run out, whose day is just about done.

    I meant no offence. But a lot of Bloggers HAVE left.

  5. Gautami: Blogging isn't dead. But it's on rescucitation. It's on its last leg. Some of us dinosaurs still remain. But most EVERYONE'S gone to Farcebook. It's like the Earth as we know it has been hit by a meteorite, and a mass extinction is being caused by all the circulating dust and dirt that results. We can no longer breathe OR retreat. We can't outrun it.
