On Blogging Again

2011-07-07T01:12:07-04:00

As former followers of this blog know, I stopped blogging on a regular basis in 2009, after having maintained a daily blog here for several years, with almost 1800 posts. Since then, I've been consistently Twittering @MParekh, and enjoying the micr0-blogging experience. Occasionally, I've been asked my friends and former readers if I'd start blogging again, to which I generally replied, maybe some day soon. Lately though, I have been missing writing the longer pieces, and have been thinking of re-starting the blog sooner than later.

(image) As former followers of this blog know, I stopped blogging on a regular basis in 2009, after having maintained a daily blog here for several years, with almost 1800 posts.

Since then, I've been consistently Twittering @MParekh, and enjoying the micr0-blogging experience.  Occasionally, I've been asked my friends and former readers if I'd start blogging again, to which I generally replied, maybe some day soon.

Lately though, I have been missing writing the longer pieces, and have been thinking of re-starting the blog sooner than later.

For the last week, I've been trying out the new Google+ Project, and think it may be a good way for me to re-start writing longer pieces. 

As my friend Loic Le Meur posted on his Google+ page earlier, "Do you really need a blog anymore?"  His point is that Google+ may be a light way to scratch the blogging itch, with a greater number of pros than cons for both writers and readers.

So instead of starting to blog here again, I think I'll try blogging again at my new Google+ public page.  As another Google+ adopter said earlier today, Google Plus feels like a "Tumblr for Adults".  

Sounds pretty apt.  

Initially my thought is to amplify some of my daily tweets, adding additional thoughts/color, and hoping to start conversations that are tougher to do on Twitter.  It may not be daily, but I hope to keep up a regular pace.

That may be followed by longer pieces, and who knows, may return to full-time blogging as well.  Of course, will continue to Twitter daily as usual.

In the meantime, please join me at Google+  if you'd like.  As always, appreciate any and all feedback.  Thanks.
