Whenever I read the WhatsApp status updates of friends, I keep wondering why they do not chronicle their thoughts and feelings in something a little more lasting.
Maybe they want their words to be as fleeting as the 24 hrs timeline of a WhatsApp status update.
Maybe they do not realise how easy blogging is.
Or maybe people choose the platform that works best for their writing, and I should let them be.
I am not one to give up. So I engage.
I remind them that twitter is a microblogging site, and that a blog post can be as short as a tweet or as long as a book. It can be daily, weekly, monthly or without a schedule. There are really no rules. It all depends on who you are writing for – yourself or an audience.
The world needs more, not less, lasting chronicling of the thoughts, feelings and actions of individuals and groups.
Start blogging. Start now. Write now.
