A month ago, there was a post about how blogging is fading from social media. I’m guessing it’s the written word v.s. videos. Yet, it seems more and more blogs are created each day. I have noticed that many of the blogs I follow seem to include book reviews, where I use this blog (mostly) to address writing issues, like sharing helpful writing hints about characterization or plot or language, offering writing challenges to stimulate the writer’s soul, and occasionally reflecting on life incidents.
If blogging actually is fading, I cannot tell from my own experience. Perhaps you have thoughts/experiences/gossip on this.
All that said, here is a writing challenge for you:
Describe the early fall day outside your window, right now. Incorporate not only the physical sights, but include each of your senses. What do you see? Hear? Smell? Reach out and touch? Maybe include taste if you dare. What exactly is your early fall day like outside today? (Okay. I cheated by walking around the house to get these photos, and the lake shot is from across the street; still: early fall.)
I don’t really see where blogging is lessening. Seems there are more and more blogs all the time. I actually prefer blogging and FB to Twitter.
Good. I didn’t see research or documents in the article, so perhaps it was just a my-opinion-so-it’s-truth.
