My morning started with a good news from my employer that “Today i’m free from work and i can do anything i want.” – Since then i have been thinking how should i spend the day. I suck at unplanned chilling, but interesting thing is, i spent lots of time on Facebook till i started writing this post. Coming to this point later but why i wanted to write this post? Because i have been thinking about it why we don’t blog anymore or way less than before?
I just visited my all time favourite geek Robert Scoble’s blog. You know when was his last blog on his personal blog site? March 5th, 2012. That’s pretty surprising delay from a blogger like Scoble who used to post at least 4-5 post everyday. Almost same story from my another favourite geek Michael Arrington – What’s wrong with blogging then? We know RSS is almost dead. Is blogging dead too?
I will let you answer on this. Do you read blog post like before? Do you get same traffic on your blog post like you used to? It’s the engagement that keep you in touch with something you do. I have a feeling this is what happening with blogger like Robert Scoble and others. Or at least they have found Facebook is more engaging than blogging, twitter.
Few years ago i wrote a blog on twitter and facebook. I said twitter wouldn’t be affected by facebook because facebook couldn’t do what twitter was doing and they have different types of friends. I was *Wrong*. I was completely wrong. Surprisingly, i’m reading most of the tech news from Facebook now days, for an example this morning i started my day reading this, where did i read it? Facebook. At this moment there is no other place on earth than Facebook that engage you and make you addicted and that’s the key to break a traditional chain.
You guys, who are reading this post can certainly argue with me. Leave your comment, prove me wrong. Will you?
