Which is why I continue to maintain this solo blog and periodically post new content, although I now use it primarily to archive content that I first post at other sites such as T&S and WWE. Facebook news feeds and groups are fine for social conversation, even meaningful conversation on religious topics as found in various LDS Facebook groups, but that content has a half-life of about one day. Think about that the next time you write a six-paragraph Facebook post or response. Then, if you think those six paragraphs are worth reading by you or anyone else beyond a single 24-hour period, get serious and go make a blog.
These reflections come after doing my annual blog update: I brought over the posts I want to save from T&S and WWE; I updated the Greatest Hits 2013 sidebar list through the end of the year; I updated my Index of Selected Posts page through the end of the year. I also updated my Now Reading box to show Catholic scholar Stephen H. Webb's book Mormon Christianity: What Other Christians Can Learn from the Latter-day Saints (OUP, 2013). Look for a post or two on this book in a few weeks.
So how has your online reading, conversing, and posting changed over the last few years? From news groups to blogs to Facebook to Twitter to Reddit to whatever is next, there are a lot of options.
