I recently began a little clean up on my blog Sacred Ordinary and noted that I have been writing at this space for ten years. Ten years? It seems hard to believe.
So many of us I still follow today (albeit sporadically) started right around that time, but most of us do know that tech times have changed. I'll be the first one to admit that so many new social media opps have presented themselves, that most of us also use Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Linked In and Instagram, just to name a few that I personally subscribe to. And though I long said that part of my daily writing practice was to post at Sacred Ordinary every day, now I post more often to Facebook.
The IT people who advise me at work and in my volunteer posts tell me that the world largely communicates in very small bites now. I do cross post Sacred Ordinary to Facebook automatically, but I've noted that it is rare for anyone to comment on FB when I do. Too many words, too many photos, and no one has the patience or time.
I hope blogs don't go the way of those handwritten letters we used to write to each other. But, I do say congratulations to myself for keeping on here as long as I have. What say you veteran bloggers? What has changed for you?
