Dr. Tanya has decided to change things up a bit for her weekly Blogging Insights prompt. Instead of using the Q&A format, she’s going to provide us with a quote about blogging or writing and ask us to express our opinion about said quote.
Here’s this week’s quote.
“Twitter is like a calling card. Facebook is like a phone call. Blogging is like a full-fledged conversation!”
I’m not sure I have much to say about this. I’ve never had a Twitter account because I never really saw the point. I do have a Facebook account (and an Instagram account as well) because my now fully grown children with families of their own use Facebook and Instagram — although Instagram more often — to post pictures of what’s going on in their lives. And even though my Facebook and Instagram accounts are active, I am not active on either. I never post anything of my own on them. I only read my kids’ posts.
So I have no opinion about whether Twitter is like a calling card or Facebook is like a phone call. But I definitely think that blogging — especially on WordPress with its active user community — is like having a conversation, some of which might be characterized as “full-fledged”; others, not so much…but conversations nonetheless.
