Having noticed in my feed reader a post from a blogger who'd not posted for a while I took a look at my list of blogs and was amazed at the number of bloggers that haven't updated their blog recently. These bloggers are still virtually active but have moved to Facebook or Twitter. It has to be said that their posts have, mainly, become advertorials for workshops or Etsy which wouldn't interest me but I'm wondering whether they feel that writing/reading a paragraph or two is too arduous, compared with a quick 140 characters.
I'm no wordsmith and too many words can make me re-coil, but I wouldn't have thought that the average blog post constituted "too many words". Reading other peoples blogs makes me think, makes me learn and makes me smile - what more could I want?
