One of the things I love about this “job” is the amount of variety, both in the things I do, the opportunities that come along, and the interesting people I get to hang out with. Strange thing is, I am not sure if the blogging part of my life is starting to shrink.
Perhaps it is just a definition thing, but I seem to do less actual blogging now than I have in about ten years.
I create blogs, I consult about blogs, I used blogs, read blogs, but my actual blogging has gone way down.
Part of that is because of social media, especially Twitter. The “what I ate for lunch” aspect of blogging has moved firmly into the 140 character realm. Pictures of my cat go up on Flickr, not my blog. But that’s not all of it. Years ago when I started I was eager to sit down and write, now it seems just what I do.
OK, back then I was a developer working in mostly Microsoft technologies, and blogging I did on the side. Now I ought to be a full time blogger, and the only code I have put together recently was for a credit cards site I am building with my friend Ryan. Coincidentally built using WordPress, but I would challenge anyone to know just by looking at it :)
I think to get my blogging mojo back I need to get guest posting more, get back out there and work that blog thang!
Do you feel you are blogging less and less? Or have you never blogged more than you do now?
