Of the three ways in which we try to make sense of the world via the Internet this is the one that seems to get the least attention from me.It is a particular investment of time and one that is not so easy to do. I rarely plan blog posts and so make them up as I go along.
I use Twitter increasingly as a method to put thoughts and ideas out there in a more quickly and somewhat random method. If read all together those thoughts and ideas rarely carry a narrative.
The other is Facebook which it seems like many I fall in and out of ‘like’ with. It serves to validate our lives in a strange way or that is my opinion of the need to share everything from the banal to a strange form of bragging although that may not be the intent. Nobody really posts the bad stuff on there, think about it.
Has the blog replaced the diary? Or is it an online method of graffiti? We all strive to make our mark on the world in some way.
