- Microblogging, or specifically for me, Plurk. I find the small updates easier; at the same time, they're also less substantial.
- Polarization of the blogging community. I find the blogging community nowhere near as vibrant as it used to be. Maybe it's because of Facebook and Twitter, but I also think that bloggers have already clustered around their own groups and activities and -- good Lord, even blogging platforms. That doesn't leave much room for unaffiliated bloggers like me. Welcome to the age of groupthink, boys and girls; no more discourse, just "I agree."
- Probloggers. Nothing's more discouraging than measuring up your tiddly readership against kids who boast of daily page counts in the thousands and hundreds of thousands-- and earning megabucks from it.
But that wouldn't be me.
