I began blogging (mumble mumble) years ago. For me, it was something new, and an exceptional way to expose some creativity and personality to a mostly uncaring world.
Over the years, along the way, over the hill and through the woods.... life has been interesting. Blogging opened up a world of people I'd never otherwise have known. This is a good thing.... I think.
Maybe five years ago, I also got into/onto Facebook. Wham bam zoom.... another world of people. Some good, some bad, some gone, some still here. Life's A'changing again.
Now, 2014, month 3ish, and blogging seems to be on a downward slope. Blogging has become so 2010. So too, Facebook is now showing symptoms of shark jumpage. As the FB elves twist and turn the model in an effort to balance user anger against income potential, the FB world appears to be reaching the first stage of internet decrepitude.
What's next? Twitter tweeter tweet? 140 character snippets of mindful shorthand? Thoughts condensed out of existence?
I think I've reached the cranky old man stage of internet life. I'm perfectly content to rock in my blog chair and go eat my earlyFB special with the other folks who still value thoughts requiring more than a handful of lonely characters.
What's next? I have no idea. Not one worth sharing, in any case. All things spin down..... all things fall..... all things change. Change is life. Change is also the way of death.
