I’m personally quite active consumer of media, from Instagram to news, blogs and of course Twitter.
What’s kept me kind of wondering is the position of blogs, over time. I mean we’re literally bombarded with (other) options to spend our time, which, by the way, is always a scarce resource. Still at least I find blogs really fascinating!
Blogs and differentiation
Blogs are often much more than just straightforward presentation of a collection of facts. Blogs do, and they’re entitled (even expected to) offer personal opinions. That’s the second differentiating aspect of blogs. One being of course the generic topic, if any.
I don’t, for one, have a precise set of topics on Jukkasoft, even though I do claim “to uncover technology”. And I guess that’s pretty much the core what I do here. But I definitely see that I’m not a gadget-geek, in the sense you’d find “phone review every week” or something even close to that frequency.
There’s more than just the informational content one goes after when reading these posts. As a reader you get the “goings on” in the life of yours truly, as well as opinions – perhaps not always so up front and underlined, but interspersed in the text.
I’ll tell you a story of something that changed my view on information in the second part!
