While reading Dan Cederholm’s blog, I found this small gem:
Like anyone who used to blog with frequency pre-2005, Iâ€™d like to post here more often â€” not just to fill up bits and bytes, but to write again. Remember when blogs were more casual and conversational? Before a postâ€™s purpose was to grab search engine clicks or to promise â€œ99 Answers to Your Problem That Weâ€™re Telling You Youâ€™re Havingâ€. Yeah. Iâ€™d like to get back to that here.
Then again, history teaches us that it probably wonâ€™t happen.
I guess this is why I blog less now.
Incidentally, I have been listening to a lot of Electroclash (aka Electro IV aka New wave III aka Synthpop II) during those past months. Fischerspooner is excellent. It’s healthy noise…
The days of blogging [casual blogging] is over :p… specially if you have twitter and facebook :p.
Though, technical blogs won’t die.
So in the end bloggers who keeps blogging and who will continue to do so.. are those bloggers who didn’t give a shit about what ppl would like to see but what he wanted to see :).
I myself i have not been blogging much… probably coz am still heartbroken
Il faut de tout pour faire un monde :-)
Tu as raison. Peut on dire que le blog se perd avec tous ces rÃ©seaux sociaux ?
Je vois que beaucoup de monde Ã©crive et post sur Facebook… Allons nous vers une uniformitÃ© et convergence des plateformes ?
MalgrÃ© le nombre croissant de sites, blog, etc … permettant de s’exprimer nous pouvons constater qu’il est possible de poster sur diffÃ©rentes plateformes Ã partir d’une seule.
Je ne pense pas que la platforme utilisÃ©e soit dÃ©terminant. Ce que Dan Cederholm dit est que, par rapport Ã 2005, aujourdh’ui pas mal de bloggeurs blogguent avec une stratgie AdSense (et autres services similaires.) Il n’est pas “pour” ou “contre.” Il constate.
ya thats true many bloggers are falling in the sensationalism trap and prefer to generate traffic…think its a vicious cycle for all media whether its old or new…the need for money always there…thats sad cos the true blogging spirit i.e to act as a new democracy platform or a new citizenship venue is also being tempted with money like the old media…

Again, referring to our recent conversation on FB…
Let me give you a link to my reflection on my blogging habits over a period of ten years – 2004-2014 – with a couple of details per year on the frequency of publications on my blog:
There are various reasons for sure, and all of them come down to my own interest. Again, I write blog articles for myself, and if others find the content interesting, amusing or controversial I’m glad to get any feedback. But clearly I’m not blogging for the sake of collecting Likes. ;-)
