Replied to Has the meaning of โ€œblog postโ€ changed? by Tom Barrett (The Curious Creative)
I would still say that a blog is primarily a space for a person to process their thinking and do the messy reflection Ferriter suggests. We might be inundated with the polished self-help style articles that panders to a dependent audience but that doesnโ€™t stop every writer forging their own rationale for creating their own digital space.
Thank you Tom for taking the time to respond. I am well aware that blogging has changed and enjoyed your story shared on the Design and Play podcast.

There is one point in your post I wish to clarify:

Davis ponders on whether we should [still] be promoting blogging as a way to connect with an engaged community of thoughtful contributors.

I am not questioning the act of blogging or microblogging. My work associated with the #IndieWeb surely demonstrates that. Rather, I am concerned about the idea of modelling such an intense pattern of writing as means of introduction for those who maybe uninitiated. Just my opinion I guess.

The irony of it all is that I love your writing and always get so much out of it, so I guess I should be grateful for #28daysofwriting as well as your newsletter.

I am left with a thought, maybe the newsletter not micro engagement that has been the ‘death of blogging’? Anyway, enough for now.
