More and more I’m thinking about this blog and what its purpose will become over the next year, or two years, or five years. With the social media landscape being completely different now than it was a year ago. How will people continue to share information with each other?
I’m getting more and more of the viral videos and updates from Facebook , and more of my articles and research through RSS. For now I’m going to continue using both this blog and my facebook account to keep people updated.
Right now I’m using facebook to post things that don’t necessarily have a long ‘information lifespan’, and instead use the blog where I want to post content that I think should stick around for longer. Plus the blog acts like a personal diary rather than just a string of updates. Something I can look back on to see what things were like. There’s only a few of you who read this blog whenever I make updates, and most of the traffic comes from the long-tail of google search results.
For those of you who do read my blog, thank you for giving me the gift of your time! I will continue to blog in 2010, though its certainly going to take a back seat to all the other exciting things I have planned.
PS: Here’s a cool magic video I found on youtube last night. (Skip to 40 seconds in)
