Is blogging dead? I hope not, but as more ops for different levels of social connectivity and idea generation emerge via the Web, people who thought blogging was for them may find an outlet more in line with who they are. Want to stay in touch but have to do it on the fly using tiny snippets of time? Twitter. More interested in sharing resources than recording the details of your lunch with a whacked out friend? Del.icio.us.
For me GrowingSense has been a way to workshop writing ideas, to let off some steam from time to time, and to stay in touch with family and friends. My cousin Kara is talking about starting a family blog, which I think sounds like a great idea. In fact, I’m retiring GrowingSense today with the hope of being a part of that at some point in the future. I plan to keep Good Home open, at least for awhile, because the content is easier and fun for me to generate. Plus there seems to be a place for a design lover who really doesn’t know what he’s doing but is willing to experiment and develop in front of people. So if you want to check in on me there from time to time, you are always welcome.
Whether you were a GrowingSense reader, commenter or just an occasional browser, thank you for letting me be a part of your life and for being a part of mine.
