As I spend less time on social media networks, I find I’m reading more of the open web.
If you are frustrated with the state of social networks, I recommend blogging more.Manton Reece
I miss the tiny updates from friends of course, because I’m not refreshing Twitter as much as I have in the past, but it’s why I’ve been saving my own tiny updates and forming them into blog posts here.
Instead of reaching for Twitter whenever I have a quick idea, I’ll throw it into WordPress, which then give me more space to stretch my legs. Before I know it, I’ve written a paragraph or two, and now that quick update has become something bigger.
Maybe not better, but it’s bigger. A little more heft. And maybe somebody gets something from that, or maybe I look back at it two years from now and wonder what the heck I was thinking.
I just know that two years from now I’m probably not going to remember that quick update on Twitter, and will definitely not ever find it, really.
