The issue was two-fold: finding time to blog and whether Twitter and/or FB are driving some of us back to the blogs to comment and engage in banter that stretches over the 140-character directive.
- Is Twitter becoming too restrictive if we have more to say than fits in 140 characters?
- Is it problematic to read a discussion in several tweets?
- Is making lists and only using those the solution?
- FB is not a solution as we drown in the noisy content of the main news feed unless we put everyone in groups and only check/respond to those.
So, is it back to blogging?
Blogging is and always will remain the better medium to express personal thoughts as there are no limitations and restrictions. However, as discussed before here and here, you need to be careful with comments.
Open comment encourage discussion but they are also the perfect invite for those not having anything else to do in life but to spam your blog. However, if we leave spammers out of the discussion, how do we feel about more blogging versus using Twitter/FB?
Then there is the time factor. If we have less time to blog are Twitter/FB reasonable substitutes?
I welcome your thoughts and yes, I often check during the day for spammers who get deleted and blocked without mercy.
