How Twitter Killed My Blog
So, you may have noticed.
It's been pretty much *crickets* over here.
I was looking back over my blog and realized something.
The waning of my interest in blogging coincides with something.
My introduction to Twitter.
I am a full blown Twitter lover.
It's so quick.
It used to be that I would think of something I wanted to share with you guys.
I'd write a blog post.
Now, I just tweet it.
I guess some could argue that a tweet is not as fulfilling as a blog post.
But it does offer something I love.
With the blog, I have to write the post, wait for you to come on over, read, decide to leave a comment.
Then, if I want to return the comment, I have to head on over to your place and read your entire post and comment.
Over on twitter, we are chatting right away.
And if you think of @ replies like comments, well, then, I am getting my feign satisfied.
Plus, while over 400 of you follow this blog, over 4,500 of you follow my tweets.
You do the math.
For someone like me who enjoys being heard, twitter is my crack.
I know some of you are thinking that tweeting doesn't improve your writing skills or allow you to put forth your thoughts the way a blog post can.
I beg to differ.
Twitter may actually improve your writing skills.
When you have to get something across in 140 characters or less, and you do it successfully?
Now, that is good writing.
And, some of you might say that twitter won't foster the connections that blogging does.
Again, I must disagree.
I chat with @mamakatslosinit @lula34 @mindlessjunques @buriedwithkids @lemusingsofmoi and so many MORE people than I ever did just through blogging alone.
Plus, Twitter can help your blog. Yep. More people to know and communicate which means more people to read your stuff.
In fact, I'll be tweeting a link to this post.
I am certainly not making the case for dropping your blog and running to twitter.
It's not for everyone.
Remember, I am not a writer.
I am a talker who writes.
Twitter offers me the ability to "talk" with my keyboard.
And, I am not saying that I am done blogging.
What I am saying is, if you are truly interested in what I am up to and want to connect RIGHT NOW....
