So What’s Changed?

One of the biggest changes that has happened to blogging, in my time as a blogger, has to be the rise of

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Delicious
  • … and other similar online applications

How have these impacted my blogging?  Well, quite simply, they’ve provided quicker, easier, better targeted means of doing much of what I did with my blog in the past.

Facebook provides me an avenue to update family and friends with the latest news about the latest goings on in the Kekoc household, and doing so in a manner that I don’t need to email them when I’ve updated.

Twitter provides me with a way of recording random thoughts etc that I’m happy to share with the wider community.

Delicious enables me to capture and catalogue the many wonderful gems one finds on the internet on a regular basis.

Then there are all the other online applications I use on a regular basis… and while each have their strengths, they have weaknesses that make me quite reluctant to putting in much effort to cultivating my presence on these for much longer… but I’ll go into each of these in greater detail in the coming weeks.
