The current market meltdown bears a lot of similarities to the ups & downs of communicating with others in cyberspace. This graph demonstrates the emotions involved.
After three years of Blogging I am just starting to get it.
Lately I've been examining the similarifferences between Blogging, Facebook & the new kid on the block Twitter.
IMHO nothing (so far) compares to Blogging. You create the content so it can be and look like anything you can dream up. It can be a gallery, diary, legacy, outlet, inlet- whatever! Sure it sucks if you don't get 100 comments but we can't be all things to all people. You need to blog for you...and once in a while..like Field Of Dreams..if you create something funny, informative, interesting or new..they will come...and it doesn't matter how many.
Facebook is easier and ready to serve. Perfect for folks who either aren't interested in or don't have the time to invent content. I've had some great instant messaging conferences with other Bloggers on Facebook..which sounds weird but it's a little more private and happening in real time.
Twitter, at 140 characters, is downright lazyass sound-byting, but it does have unbelievable linking potential..for your BLOG! I'm not sold yet but I have noticed that nobody can say muchof anything in 140 and so they all seem to add links. Hmm?
