Dave has written a couple of provocative posts stating 'why you stopped blogging' —spoiler alert, he blames social media.
Yes, I stopped 'blogging' and moved to Google+ for just over a year (I referred to it as social blogging) but that wasn't why I stopped posting on my own site.
I had become disillusioned with the process, with the quest for perfection, with making everything an essay. I tried to rein it back by posting "thoughts" (shorter posts) but needed to step away.
Moving to Google+ allowed a certain amount of freedom and reflection even if the #write365 project took its toll on me. I felt (and still feel) that I needed to see things from the outside to work out what I was going to do, what I needed to do; to realise what blogging really meant to me.
I made that mistake too, in my case posting on FB. (Google+ never clicked for me, nor I suspect with most of Google.) I've said it before on my blog, but ZuckNet is a lousy blogging platform.
I had to laugh at the irony of Dave Winer posting his blog post to FB as a PNG graphic. 🤣
