“Seriously now, why do you need a blog?
Nowadays, when you’ve got Facebook and Twitter, you have enough platforms to express yourself.”
Let’s face it. they’re popular, easy to use and requires no actual investment for posting or communicating any content you might want or need. you can login at any time, scrabble a few words, hit the publish or tweet button and… move on.
You can even go as far as compare it to relationships.
If you had the choice to have a relationship that requires no actual commitment, that can be maintained very easily by just “tweeting” it from time to time, wouldn’t that be more easier?
(At this point I am pretty sure most of you guys say: “Fuck yeah”).
Well. I don’t. I lose interest 🙂 very quickly.
I don’t have any sentiments for either Facebook nor Twitter since I didn’t find myself spending any of my time there.
Sure, I check out on some people’s statuses from time to time, but I hardly post stuff about myself.
I did not find my “unique voice” in those platforms. too many posts, too much noise, I couldn’t find my place there.
When I did post anything there, it just got swept away in the sea of other messages…
It was easy, too easy to just scrabble something up and move on…
“But maintaining a blog requires actual investment!”
All the more reason to do it. I love the challenge.
I love the fact you have to sit down and think about what you want to write.
So… I’ll Blog 🙂
