Okay, so I’m back. I’ve been on a blogging vacation – mainly to figure out what to do with my site in the wake of my two database crashes in the past year. I’ve been fearful of posting too much stuff, or working too hard on my template, only to lose it all again. Not to mention the fact that WordPress and my theme, Thesis are constantly pumping out new versions (though that’s not necessarily a bad thing).
I was toying with the idea of just converting my blog to a Tumblr blog (littlelostrobot.tumblr.com), but I’ll lose some functionality along the way. Also, Tumblr and Flickr haven’t exchanged APIs yet, which was the deal breaker for me. I think I liked the idea of going to Tumblr because it’s part of that whole ‘follow culture’ that’s going on right now….which is partly to blame in my lack of motivation.
I’m finding it hard to update my blog, and follow/comment on other blogs when everything is cross broadcast through Twitter and Facebook. Anyone else feeling that way? Well, I’ve decided to get back on the blog. I just have too much cool stuff to post this summer. I’m not sure about going back and restoring old posts though, but I’m going to syndicate all my WP posts to my Tumblr page so that I’ll have somewhere to go if everything implodes again.
Anyway, I’ll end this with a question to y’all. Do you still read blogs, or as many blogs?
