I wrote a while ago that I thought Twitter would cause blogging to diminish. And some seemed to think I was probably a bit misguided. Now I am reading more and more people have traded in their blogs for Twitter.
It’s a shame really. What has happened in some degree is that people have traded in telling us about their life story, their experiences, and what God is really doing in their lives for simply telling us what they are doing at that moment. It’s not everyone. But it is certainly affecting the sheer volume of posts.
I kind of slacked on my blogging because I was busy with other stuff like Seesmic.com and twittering. But I missed blogging. I missed it because it helped me put a bookmark on my life’s timeline, pause, reflect, and write about whatever was happening in my life and what God was showing/teaching/leading/rebuking/blessing me with. I am rediscovering the joy of blogging again. And it’s really not so much for you three or four readers. It’s for me. It’s my way of talking out loud. People who are not verbal processors always get weirded out around verbal processors. My blog never seems to get weirded out. That’s a great thing.
