Random Aside - Blogs Getting "Older?"
I know this isn't a "thing," but I just had to post it. A friend brought it to my attention when I told him I was working with blogs for class. It's an article discussing the usage of blogs, and how while the number of people using blogs hasn't changed much recently, the age of the users have. Most people under the age of 18 find blogs to be too long and boring to keep up with in comparison to updates on sites like facebook and twitter. Does this reinforce the stereotype that the younger generation is too ADD? I personally like the longer bits of information found in blogs. Status updates are too impersonal or trivial. Knowing what show someone is watching or nothing besides how someone is feeling doesn't do it for me. Thoughts?
