People Don't Blog No Mo, All They Do Is Tweet...

Why am I doing this? Honestly b/c I have to be at work in 3 hours and if I fall asleep I'm gonna wake up surly. And because I was reading my old posts and remembered that I'm freakin hilarious! At least I used to be. Looking at the blog, it's been over 3 1/2 years since I logged in and wrote something here. In that time a bunch has changed. I've taken a wife. I mean, I got married, not that I've kidnapped someone's spouse. I became the oldest 1st time father I know. I also turned 40.

Blogging lost ground to Facebook. Facebook lost ground to Twitter. Twitter lost ground to Instagram. Instagram will soon lose ground to something that I'm too old to be invested in. Not that I'm old old, but I'm not about to be on snapchat with my 18 year nephew. Anyway, my point was people don't blog anymore. I mean, you can call tumblr blogging if you want, but it's really just an excuse to post nekkid pictures and cat gifs. But really there are only a few of the hundreds of bloggers I used to interact with that are still doing it. I used to lament this fact, but I'm over it. I can't make people blog. I can't even make myself blog. I barely even tweet. I only use Facebook to show pictures of my cute baby. I'm always online, it just isn't my whole life anymore.  Life changes...

When I think about how much time I used to spend writing blogs, then reading blogs then instant messaging bloggers, it's amazing I got anything done. Ok, I didn't really get anything done. It's not like I had a vibrant social life back then. I did meet some cool folks from blogging, and some crazy folks from blogging. Most importantly I met my wife from blogging. I guess that's why no matter how long I go without blogging, I always come back to it. Mostly just reading my old blog(s) and hers and reliving our origins. This post just took a turn, I forgot that I ramble when I'm sleepy. 

Anyway, I wonder how long it'll take for someone to read this.  See ya in another 3 years.
