Interactions in the blogosphere seems very, very low. I’d think the current situation would have created the opposite.
@cdevroe I wonder if folks are gravitating to the social networks? I’ve certainly been on facebook more to connect with friends I can no longer see in person. (And watch videos of a friend playing soccer with his corgis. 💛 🐶💛)
@Bruce My old, original, mid-90s internet BBS community has fallen back together on IRC, so that’s where I’ve mostly been. @cdevroe
@cdevroe I’ve noticed the same. I wonder if people aren’t getting burnt out from being online all day while working from home? I know that’s been the case for me.
@cdevroe I think people are still learning how to hunker down, how to wfh, and spend time with their loved ones. Coming out of that shell will take just a tad bit longer, and then the blogosphere will light up! :)
@cdevroe I just haven’t had the energy to compose much.
@cdevroe people have far to much on their minds. First comes the shock, then after a while things will settle down and the anxiety begins. Expect interactions then…
@kaa Yeah that’s me to a tee. Makes a lot of sense when I think about that. Thanks for putting it down in words.
@Bruce Could be. I’m definitely on IG the most these days but that is because of my photography addiction. :)
@bix There you go making me feel old for knowing what you’re talking about. 😀
@mikehaynes This could definitely be. They want away from the computer by the time the end of the day comes. All I want to do is be outside shooting photos.
@nitinkhanna Or maybe they are all working on really long, well-thought-out think pieces! :)
@amit You’re likely right. Or maybe everyone is just in bed with the covers over their heads! :)
@kimberlyhirsh I find that making helps my energy level. I need to make things.
@cdevroe For me, physical making does that, but blogging feels more like socializing.
@kimberlyhirsh I suppose “sharing” what I’ve made is likely what I meant. Though, I do write software from time-to-time my latest addiction has been film photography.
@cdevroe hehe. Yeah that would be nice too! Though I much like the “here’s me checking in” posts too 😊
