The art of blogging

I recently read an article by a Twitter friend who stresses the importance of blogging weekly. I have to admit that I have gotten away from blogging because I am lazy. Using my Twitter account is a great way to share information on a local/global platform with little effort. It is also a great way to 'drive' people to your blog, website, etc. and relieves you from taking/adding photos, adding a personal point of view or alliteration. It is basically a 'sloppy' way for those of us busy people to get the word out.

I have become pretty obsessed with my Twitter account and now spend more time looking for people to follow, checking to see who is following me, checking for Direct Messages and reading what everyone else is writing. This is leaving me with little time to actually 'tweet', which is why I am coming back to my blog.

Even though I don't have a lot of followers, I feel the people who take the time to read my blog share an interest and can actually, possibly learn something from me.

So, I am committed to writing a post a week. I hope those of you who have a blog will consider investing more time in your blog than your Twitter account.

Yeah for Social Media!
