The above award was passed on to me by Barbara (Caneyhead).
For the first time since sometime last month, I went round the blogs I have on Google Reader. It felt like coming home after a long absence. A common theme seems to be developing, namely that people spend less and less time on their blogs, and more on Facebook and Twitter. I no longer believe this is solely due to the abolition of AOL Journals in September 2008. I spend a lot of time myself on my own Twitter account. Nonetheless, I do not think you can properly blog on Twitter, with the restriction of 140 characters. You can't include pictures or other material, and certainly not describe a train of thought.
I'll carry on blogging as I have done since October 2004, and endeavour to write at least a post a day. If you can, please do so yourself. I'll see you around.
