Is Blogging Getting Passe?

Don - February 7, 2008

I know I check the blogs less than I use to. I guess for me it’s hard to think of something new to post.

It seems that there really haven’t been any new and exciting posts lately either….no offense, but mine haven’t been either.

Have all the good ideas been used? Have we already posted on all the subjects that interest us? Has facebook and myspace taken over as the expression area of the internet?

What can be done to revitalize blogging?

Oh, nevermind I probably won’t get back here to see your comments anyway….since my interest is down….is that just me speaking or do others feel the same?


  1. That’s sort of a downbeat note for kicking off your “Nice Moons for President” campaign.

  2. Nope. I sincerely blame Council of Fifty. And the election.

    There’s always something to blog about. Even if it’s re-hashed stuff. Things in life usually go in cycles anyway, so I see nothing wrong with bringing up old subjects that will now have new twists on them because of life experience. So, blog, Nine Moons, Blog!

  3. Everybody gets burned out on blogging once in a while. It’s natural, but the feeling passes.

  4. To be honest I’ve never been that interested in most of what gets posted on the LDS group blogs.

  7. Blogging is just a way of talking to people. Talking to people never gets old. We just do it through different mediums over time.

  8. What’s your secret Don? I’ve been trying to get this blogging monkey of my back for a few years now.

    Blogging is just a way of talking to people. Talking to people never gets old. We just do it through different mediums over time.

    Exactly the reason I want to quit. Can you imagine talking on the phone with friends as many hours as you blog? Have – to – stop….

  9. I love blogs and blogging… I have nearly 600 subscriptions in my newsreader, and spend a little time each day skimming the new stuff and actually reading the good stuff.

    I love the new layer that blogging adds to my own ecosystem: family, friends, ward, neighbors, people of note, and now blogs of note and blog buddies. No complaints.

    As for my dearth of posting (anywhere), this holiday season, I was visited by two nasty respiratory infections and a back spasm… and when I finally recovered, I hopped a plane to Tokyo for a week of business meetings punctuated by amazing food.

    And now I’m back.

  10. Blogging tends to be the activity of people who think they have something important and profound to say. After we reach a certain level of maturity, we all realize we’re idiots and know very little. At that point, blogging begins to seem like such a presumptious thing to engage in.

    So, congratulate yourself. It’s a good thing.

  11. Very profound Sam
