To blog or not to blog? That is the question. I recently read a blog post that discussed the move of these types of communication mediums to Facebook (or Google+ or whatever social media startup has opened up this afternoon) - that blogs are starting to decline in usage and favour and perhaps we should just throw the towel in and post to Facebook instead.
An interesting argument (except that I hate Facebook). This got me thinking as to why I blog at all though ... highlighted for me in the last two weeks as I've seen my followers go from 228 to 221 (at least for the moment). Now, who knows why that is ... nor should I really care at the end of the day ... gamers are as fickle as any other hobbyists as I'm sure you all know (lol) ... but the timing was interesting given the other blogger's post I read.
Update: Apparently there has been some change to Google+ and/or Blogger that has cause a general dip in blog following ... a big sarcastic thank you goes to Google!
For me, I blog because I'm terrible at photo albums and record keeping. Even if I didn't have any followers it provides a cool journal of my wargames and hobby life over a long period of time - a modern and easy to do photo album (ironically my Dad was good about taking pictures and making gaming photo albums).
That all being said, I'm truly honoured that anyone reads my musings (including this one). So thank you all who continue to follow me through history. I know I've been on a modern kick the last couple of months but you've seen the plan for the year and I've already made some great progress on my new projects ... so if you are a bit tired of modern, fear not ... other stuff is coming very soon.
I'm going to keep on blogging ... like I said, even if it is just me, but I'm curious to hear what you all think on the topic? Please do comment.
That all aside ... DundraCon approaches in a couple of weeks and I've been busy working on preparations ... so more pictures coming soon of new stuff.
