One issue I have struggled with for some time; if I should consolidate all my blogs in one. Truly speaking, only one blog ever gets all the attention (and I do not mean site traffic only). None of my other blogs has a post count anywhere close to five hundred. While I have started many a blog, I do not write frequently on all of them.
Along came Facebook, and I enjoyed throwing sheep at people (though I have yet to find any usefulness of the act; perhaps that is the purpose), and a while later, the excitement dwindled when sheep-currency started falling out of favour. It now works for me as an over-engineered contact list of sorts.
There was always Flickr, I have some amazing photographers as Flickr Friends, and that place continues to inspire. Lately, however, Flickr has become quite personal in a way that I hardly socialise. My work hasn’t evolved much since I put my first photograph there.
Somewhere on the way I encountered Twitter. I never warmed up to it for a very long time, till some folks in the place where I work, decided to work on an experiment using Twitter. I discovered new ways of using Twitter and have been flushing my Twitter API tank more frequently than before. Now, the interest seems to be waning.
I remember, I even had a MySpace account once. A Yahoo 360. A Photoblog account, which are now pretty much defunct. There are many others, where I am (or was) present.
It is almost like being everywhere by not being anywhere. Yet you feel omnipresent. Like God, sans the superpowers. There is, I can sense, a form of Web 2.0 fatigue I experience. It is almost stressful, in a way.
There are more means to express than expression is possible.
