Blogging on the go

It seems that the 2-second generation is taking over! Micro-blogging seems all the rage now, with more people using Internet-enabled cellphones to blog while they are on the go, something also known as moblogging (mobile blogging).

I just read the other day about how Twitter is getting more and more popular, and it is now another platform that bloggers need to use to keep their readers updated on what they have posted.

There’s a Twitter guide that you could read to help you get started. It’s really about giving your friends in your Twitter network live updates of what you are doing in as few words as possible!

In a jump-on-the-bandwagon kind of way, I got myself a Twitter account, so don’t be surprised if a you get a little twitter from me!

    This isn’t exacly the same, but I find myself sitting in a darkened room while everyone else sleeps, reading your post on my wife’s iPod Touch. Sometimes mobility only takes you a short distance but the journey’s worth it!

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your comment. Hm..never quite imagined my blog to be bedtime reading!! Ha. But you are so right about the way mobile devices are changing how we connect.

    But sometimes, though, the connections are getting faster and shorter, that it seems we are engendering a society with even shorter attention spans!

    Yes, that’s true, which is why I’m avoiding Twitter myself! But I think people have been worried about that sort of thing ever since the introduction of television, and while we might not have improved very much because of it, television really hasn’t been harmful. Mobile phones are probably a case in point too. Anyway, I hope you enjoy moblogging (he writes, from his very stationary desktop this time)!

    Yes, you are right – there’s always bound to be some adjustments needed to new technology, and after a while, what is considered ‘new’ media is not that ‘new’ after all.

    Actually, it’s quite interesting to consider the term ‘new media’ – is it ‘scaleable’ enough to encompass the ever-changing new forms/platforms of communication, or will it go the way of terms such as ‘post-modernism’ and be used to define what we now call Web 2.0 technologies?
