This is a question I have battled with for almost 2 years now. I don’t really spend too much on this blog, it’s hosted on Blogger and the only penny I pound is when I have to renew the domain.
I am a complete Social Media enthusiast and everything I would normally do via a blog, I do all over the internet. I use Google Reader to share interesting posts, Del.icio.us to save interesting links, FaceBook to socialize online, Picasa to share photographs and Twitter to tell the world I am thinking. Finally I use FriendFeed to being all these together to make what I call my lifestream or ‘digital footprint’. Do I really need a blog?
On the other hand, there are times when I want to write long posts and explain what I am thinking (like right now), and that’s when I find a blog to be priceless. It also gives me the privilege of having a ‘home’ on the internet.
Do you think I need a blog? If yes, why? Share your thoughts under the comments.
