The trend is clear

The trend is clear. The number of posts decreases. I think blogging has come to an end. Jeff Davis KE9V stopped blogging as well and uses Google+ for news updates.

I use Twitter @PC4T Facebook and Google+ All my internet activities are shown in Google + so there is no need for blogging. I'm considering stopping blogging, again. A lot of my fellow bloggers are on Google+ as well. Why should I spend time with making blog posts? I had to get used to google+, it took some time, but now I get it. I am a slow follower of trends. Maybe you recognize it; any change at my age takes time. So my blog will soon close. Make the switch to google+ if you want. I'll hope to see you there.

I'm more than just a radio amateur.

  1. The handful of dollars I get from the ads keep me blogging. I'm still learning Google+. I just enabled it in Blogger to do the updates, too.

    1. Hi Brick, if you like to blog, just do it. It's all connected with each other. It's not sure I will stop, but it will be less frequent. 73 Paul

  2. Ik heb google+ nog niet helemaal door. Facebook zit ik ook op. Ik blijf voorlopig nog bloggen. Alhoewel ik zie dat de trend bij mij ook naar beneden gaat. Ik zie facebook, twitter en google+ meer als een trapje of ladder naar mijn blog. Twitter kijk ik zo ie zo bijna nooit op, vind het erg mager en beperkt. Google+ lijkt wel potentie te hebben maar lijkt ook veel op facebook. Het is maar net wat je zoekt. Jammer als je stopt, maar ik heb er wel begrip voor. Je moet doen wat jij het leukst vind en het nooit van anderen af laten hangen. 73, Bas

    1. Hallo Bas, ik weet niet zeker hoor of ik stop, maar het zal wel minder worden. Toevallig keek naar mijn archief en toen viel me op dat het elk jaar minder wordt. De bron is een beetje opgedroogd, en/of steeds weer hetzelfde. Misschien de januari blues. ;-) de andere sociale media gebruik ik ook. Maar het is allemaal met elkaar gekoppeld, dus het maakt niet uit waar ik het zet. Jouw nieuwe berichten zie ik ook meestal het eerst in Google+ Naast de radio hobby heb ik nog veel meer andere interesses, zoals filmen en fotografie maar ook muziek. Nou ja, we zien wel. 73 Paul

    2. Hello Paul. I understand your points regarding blogging. I sometimes think we to prefer to chat about amateur radio rather than actually operate and wonder if we didn't enjoy and appreciate the hobby more during pre-internet days. You and I were licensed prior to that event.

      It is possible that as we age, a blog is one of the ways of maintaining long friendships that might not be possible otherwise. Especially as letter-writing is rapidly becoming a lost art.

    3. Hi Dick, yes indeed we are from the pre-internet days. I enjoy making qso's 1 or 2 per day. But that blogging thing is a bit dried up. But as you said, I met a lot of nice guys with blogging, and I don't want to loose those contacts. so I keep the blog for checking other fellow blogs, but I will only post something when it's worthwhile to share. maybe it's my January blues. ;-) The main thing is still the radio and wireless contact out there. 73 Paul

  3. I have 115 G+ followers but 167 old-style members. Twitter has helpedthe blog receive more readers too. I'll stick to blogging for w while yet. Takes me a while to get used to these new-fangled things. I haven't got the hang of Twitter yet. :)

  4. Hi Paul

    My posts are less than they were at first but when I have time and something to say I blog! It is a way of recording my thoughts I think. I don't understand Google +, have never really looked at it. Maybe I should?
