To Be a Blogger

I stopped blogging even before Facebook and Twitter became part of every day conversation. I'm not sure why.

There were a few of us though, and to say we all lost our platforms, we all got too busy, or each of us stumbled into the same writers block seems far fetched.

Did Blogging run its course? Did we say what it was we had to say? And now that we can post a sentence as often as we want, or repeat what was said to us with a few clicks, are we content?

I don't think so.

I think the real muses out there have stories to tell. I think some of us paint with more than 140 characters and will always gather around the fire to talk and listen, laugh and learn. I'm going to try.
