Taly Weiss points out what she views to be the future of blogging: short message style.
The sad part is, I can’t help but think she’s right. And though I do understand the value of simplicity, the fact that even blogging is moving to a short message style reflects a disheartening aspect of our culture today: the relentless pursuit of speed.
Imagine if books or magazine articles or newspapers move towards that. Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? So why should blogging move in that direction? Blogging is about writing, sharing your opinions and thoughts. It shouldn’t become a “short message stye” thing.
Has society really come to a point where in our pursuit of speed, we are unwilling to take time out to read and write our ideas; where we are too rushed to slow down and share new thoughts? I really hope not.
