Much to my family and friends’ consternation, I have become somewhat of a Twitter addict. Along the way, especially since I am an investor in Automattic, I have been wondering about how my Twitter addiction would impact my blogging.
Here is my initial take: I blog less frequently but when I do blog there is more substance to what I want to say. Many of the very quick “observation” or “just read a good post” notes go to Twitter, whereas things I have actually been thinking about and/or mulling over end up as blog posts.
We’ll see whether this balance persists. But it feels right to me, and a pretty natural balance between “updates” I stream and “posts” I publish.
