... I was so posh?
Earlier this week, I participated in a virtual protest regarding the censorship of breastfeeding pictures on Facebook. I didn't expect it to get national media attention. Does Facebook Know Breast?
The CBS Morning show also did a story today on the New Trends in '09 According to their guest, "Twittering is out, Slow Blogging is in." Google the term "slow blogging'' for a number of links elaborating on the subject. A few that caught my attention: Microtrends and Slow Blogging? I haven't been blogging much lately... then again, I haven't been running or training much either. I didn't realize that I was thereby considered a slow blogger. "Slow bloggers take their time, often leaving weeks between posts."
According to Hedengren, "We don’t need a slow blogging movement, we need good content and quality comments." Many of my posts are rather dull to those who don't know me personally. I am actually surprised I have a readership at all. Other slow bloggers have given up on their blogs. As Ahmed explains, "Tired of waiting for new entries, people stopped reading it." I hope I don't lose my readers when my level of blog productivity drops.
To be honest though, I started my blog(s) for me. As a means of documenting my training for my first marathon. As a portfolio of our homeschooling endeavors. I appreciate all my readers (particularly those that leave comments and help to encourage me in my efforts). I am humbled to know that others occasionally find inspiration from my posts. To those of you whom I have met (in person or online) and developed friendships with along the way (you know who you are)... from the bottom of my heart, I thank you! It make my efforts worthwhile.
