Some great discussions about blogging here on R.w.a. and my social media dilemma
Yes, tmo, I yearn for the “days of “Blogging Antiquity”, before ads, or sponsors, or commercialism overran the blogosphere.”.
I agree with Jet's Blog: blogging should not be advertising.. Such a great read on Blogging Antiquity!
R.w.a is awesome !
I spent some time today backing up my former Wordpress blog. I had posts there from 2013. I took a disproportionate amount of time to find out where the export option was. I almost gave up. But it's done. I've been debating with myself if I should delete the account. I've done that before with Medium, after I tested it for while. But for some reason revisiting my first posts on Wordpress today made me nostalgic. I could not hit DELETE. Is that what you do when you move to a new blogging platform? Just delete the old one?
I've been having a similar dilemma about social media. I deactivated my Facebook account, but haven't deleted it. Same thing with Twitter, not actually using it, but it's still out there. The only reason my Facebook was NOT deleted is... family and friends that are far away still use it. It's sometimes their only online presence. So, what if one day I want to contact them? That's the only place these people exist in my references. I keep it for “someday/maybe”... food for thought..
