Social, including blogging, has evolved so much since I seriously got involved back in 2006. Eight years ago.
First we saw comments go from a blog post go to Facebook… and Twitter… and all of the sudden the blog felt like a cold, lonely place.
Then, we saw people giving up their blogs and moving to Facebook or whatever they thought was better.
During the eight years I’ve blogged regularly, on multiple blogs… but especially my JibberJobber blog. It is refreshing to see an email from The Publicity Hound (Joan Stewart) that includes this:
I never thought blogs were going away, and there are a few things they are better at than social networks (and a few things social tools are better at than blogs).
I see them all as tools… why not use the right tools to do the jobs needed, instead of one tool to try to do all jobs?
