Twitter has made me a lazy blogger

I can't deny it to myself any longer. Twitter has made me a lazy blogger.

I rarely, if ever, invested much time in drafting blog posts. I generally sat down and slammed out whatever was at the forefront of my mind (which is what I am doing now). 15 minutes after I sit down I can press a publish button and be done with it. Happy that I purged a bit of my knowledge into the black hole of the web.

However, 30 seconds of my thumbs tapping at my cel phone keypad gives me a Twitter of 140 character or less post - straight to the web and my friends cel phones.

I love the sound-byte quality of Twitter, but am beginning to miss the depth blogging brings.

I won't be giving up Twitter any time soon, but I've made a tentative deal with myself to blog more often. I guess we'll see what happens.
