It's not just the young who drift to new sites away from blogging, as stated in this Times piece. The further entrenched in Facebook I became, the less I wrote here. It's understandable that pictures of dogs and gardens would find their way to my circle of "friends." But I have also written much less about art and artists here and that was the reason I started Blogger to be begin with.
Part of it could be due to KBOO. When I started this blog, I didn't have Art Focus. The previous venture, Artstar radio at KPSU, was a much less public arena. Since I've been at KBOO I just don't feel as free to dish.
Even when I post about art here, it's amazing how little traffic is here compared to my Facebook. A lot of people had something to say about my latest interview with Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson about the Contemporary Northwest Art Awards. Not a word here. That's just one example. More and more this is the place for the official record, but the conversation happens elsewhere.
