Last weekend, when I went to my 35th high school reunion and visited with extended family, I both Facebooked (it’s a verb!) and blogged the experiences. Facebook updates were fast and easy, while blogging took more time. Since the information and the photos were essentially the same, it really felt redundant.
I used to blog quick single thoughts, like this and this and this, but these days I use Facebook for that. I don’t use Facebook for recipes or for long rants or raves or for deeply introspective writing – but for some reason that I can’t really pinpoint (other than simply being busy), I don’t write those posts anymore – though I wish I did. I miss writing, of the really writing sort.
So I’m befuddled: should I continue to make an effort to blog often (it’s never really been an effort until recently!), should I let my blog die a natural death, or should I do something in-between? (Like what?)
Are you a social media addict who’s been faced with this predicament? What did you decide, and why? Do you have any advice for me?
