Social Media Killed My Blog

Years ago, before the term “social media” was a part of everyone’s life, this blog was where I wrote about things that interested me, funny stories, photos, life events, etc. I remember people thinking it was odd that I had a blog where I wrote and shared things, but now, people think it’s odd when someone doesn’t have a social media account where they share everything. Why? Because it is all about social media now.┬áThere was a time where several of my friends were blogging also, but they are all on social media.

For some time now I have been wanting to start blogging again. Yes, I’ll post a few things and then stop but I really want to be more consistent with it. That will probably mean not posting on social media anymore and it will probably mean no one will be reading what I write. I guess that’s OK. Going back in time to read my old posts is what I enjoy the most so this blog is more of journal I suppose.

When I post this blog entry, it will most likely also get posted to Twitter automatically. It will be last time it does that. I can’t complain about social media while my blog posts are on Twitter so I’ll disable that.
