Are you blogging less, tweeting more?

By Steve Outing

I have a few projects going right now, and I find that I’m remembering to post to this blog less often than I usually do. It’s not just that I’m busy, though; I’ve always been busy. No, I think that in part I’m blogging a bit less because I’m tweeting more. (To “tweet” is slang for posting to Twitter, but I’m using the term here to represent posting to various micro-blogging and personal-update services — which are proliferating, BTW; just yesterday I signed up to Plurk.)

Used to be that whenever a stray thought or insight came into my head, I’d blog about it. But now I’m more likely to condense said thought/insight into 140 characters and tweet it. If it can’t be boiled down to that, then it becomes a blog item.

How is this working out for you? Are you blogging less now that micro-blogging services like Twitter are gaining in popularity?
