Eon recently began writing about the blogs on his roster—it’s an excellent idea, one that I plan on copying, harhar.
Seriously, I think it’s a great way to discover blogs and learn about the people behind them. When Eon mentioned that we’ve known each other for nine years, it made me realize: a) how time flies, and b) how different social media dynamics were then compared to now. A barrage of tweets and status updates just can’t compare to longer and lovingly written entries, no matter how sporadic. Also, today, there’s more emphasis on being “re-tweeted” or “re-blogged” than hearing comments from your readers, and hopefully, keep a thread of discussion ongoing. Our attention span—in this case, to provide feedback as a reader—has been reduced to a click. (That’s what I miss about Multiply and one of the reasons why I’m never deleting my account there—I have some of the funniest comments thread there.)
