Sharing and the death of blogging

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I haven’t been blogging much. I really want to but just haven’t made the time for it. Sure, I’ve been busy, but is that really an excuse? I’ll try to step it up and have some captive time coming up which may give me ample opportunity.

One of the other reasons for me, appears to be the same for many of my friends: sharing. With Facebook, Google Reader, Twitter, FriendFeed, and related social sites, it has become exceedingly easy to just share a link to an interesting article, video, or picture rather than produce anything yourself. I’m not complaining, I’ve discovered by way of friends many interesting things. It’s just unfortunate that it has become the de facto expression of people (including myself).

If you still blog, kudos to you. Please keep it up. The Internet will become a very boring place if everyone just keeps recycling the same ol’ thing.
