Twitter is the New Blog...

Summer's Daydreams has been around now for six years (cue Blogiversary music). Sadly, in the past three years a couple of jobs I've had made it difficult to blog and I seem to have fallen out of the habit.

I want to blog more, I really do. Often I have all sorts of things and opinions rolling around in my head that yearn to be blogged and discussed. I sometimes regret not blogging about some things that I normally would have been all over... watching them pass by while the blog remains too silent. It's true I have a bit of a time issue these days and finding the time to sit and write a blog post has been a small challenge in itself.

But what I really blame is Twitter. Twitter steals the blog's thunder everytime. Sure it only gives me 140 characters but that is often enough to throw my thoughts out there - quick and easy - and that diminishes the need to blog.

Twitter is the new blog.

So I am going to think about how I can make my blog relevant to me again and try to recommit to it once I do. Hopefully I can set the tone for the next six years of Summer's Daydreams.

Happy blogiversary to me...

Happy Blogiversary to you!

I for one still stop by to check once in a while to see if there is something new. I usually always enjoy when there is and its not hard to navigate away if there is not. For whatever it is worth, I hope you find your stride again.

Maybe I just have to give myself permission to have an opinion again. :)

Twitter is like a VLT for wonks and geeks for sure. You have so much to say and offer I hope you blog too. Congrats on 6 years - that is amazing.

Thanks Ken!

Really I am starting to think that my 6th Blogiversary is starting to look like just another of the many symptoms of my increasing age! ;)
