Hey everybody! (I don't know who still reads this blog, as so much attention has been given to FB these days, but hello to anybody who's reading this!)
I really miss all the interaction we used to have on our blogs. Facebook has been such a cool thing, with some good relational aspects to it, but it seemed we were much more of a "family" when we were all doing the blogging thing.
I had just mentioned on a comment over on Matthew's blog that FB has made it really easy to simply make quick, short posts, without really having to take the time to chew on an issue, or to construct a post that is made up of meaningful paragraphs (rather than just bites). I'm not complaining about the quick-bite aspect of FB, because I've enjoyed some very positive aspects of doing things that way, but at the same time I really miss the times that I would spent writing longer posts, and the thought process that went along with all of that. I also miss reading other blogs and interacting with all of you.
Haha... Looking back, I remember (not really all that long ago) when I was overwhelmed by the number of blog feeds I had in my feed reader (over 80 at one time), and I had to conscientiously decide which blogs to delete from it. I actually had to do this a few times over a span of three or four years, and each time, I felt guilty and sad for removing various blogs, because I didn't want to miss what anyone said, nor the chance for interacting with them.
But nowadays, I hardly ever look at my feed reader! And that saddens me. Again, I love the interaction on FB, but it's nothing like the good ol' blogging days.
And so, well, I guess I'm not saying anything will or won't change. But just sitting here, looking at this very post in draft mode, I get a thrill, remembering those days when I was sitting right here, composing those blogs! And having just posted a couple of comments on Matthew's blog, it brought back the same feelings. So who knows. We'll see what happens!
