Dan Cohen – “Back to the Blog”

Confluence! This Dan Cohen post talks about a microtrend that I’m happy to be a part of.

“…the salad days of “blog to reflect, tweet to connect” are gone. Long gone. Over the last year, especially, it has seemed much more like “blog to write, tweet to fight.” Moreover, the way that our writing and personal data has been used by social media companies has become more obviously problematic—not that it wasn’t problematic to begin with.

Which is why it’s once again a good time to blog, especially on one’s own domain.”

I’ve had a nice little posting run here lately and I’m a super-fan of having my own domain.
