Blogs Dead?

It's been more than a month since my last blog post and frankly, this is starting to feel like work. What happened?

I believe it's a combination of Twitter and Facebook. These two applications have made it easier to share opinions, what you're doing, photos, videos, links and whatever else you want to share with friends and the world. Add to that the complimentary applications such as TweetDeck and there may be really no place the blog anymore unless you're a commercial blogger.

I recently started using foursquare and like so many new applications coming to market these days, it seamlessly integrates with Twitter. So you get to update friends about where you are and where you like to hang out without having to have your friends join the same app.

I don't have the data, but I'm sure if you Googled it, you can find usage metrics on blog sites such as blogger and WordPress. I'm wondering how the growth of these sites have slowed or perhaps declined?
