    I agree with Twitter replacing blogging to a certain extent. But with Twitter you can only keep posts short, can’t post any in-line images/videos and it lacks flow.

    Creativity and imagination plays a big part in blogging. Sometimes you can feel that because you don’t have decent ideas to blog about that you don’t blog at all. The best thing i find is to just start writing! Motivation and imagination is not far behind.

    I need to revive my blog. And i will. Watch this space (by that i mean my blog!) πŸ™‚

  • @Chaya : lol! I forgot to mention that point πŸ˜› LAZYNESS!!!

    @Nav : Yeah, 140 characters won’t be enough to say everything. Except if you are named Tushal πŸ˜› lol Pas vraie?

    I write everyday for professional purpose. And when it comes to blogging, I get tired…

    Mais bon, bizin pran couraz…

  • @Gui : hehe, that’s right.
    I think that it is something comparable to my life when it comes to IT stuff.
    I very rarely touch programming at home (only for my blogs purpose), especially after spending the whole day writing lines of code at work!

  • As you said, lack of time. I do have notes stuck up somewhere for articles but no time to write them.

    Alright, I agree with Chaya. It’s a bit of lazyness, lack of time & being caught up with uni life. πŸ™‚

    I bet you had plenty of ideas but some subjects are just too controversial in this country. The men in black might knock on your door.

    Some latest research seem to demonstrate that people are going more and more on facebook to write small things instead of having a blog. Some even say that blogging will die…

  • Personally I blog only when a topic comes to me. I do not try to look for any topic. I stopped doing that. I noticed that when I write an article on a topic that I had to “look for”, I also had to FIND words and sentences to make that article… but when I wrote on topics that simply came in my mind without making any effort to look for them, I was able to write the articles without the need to find the exact words or structure the sentences… As if everything that was inside my mind are automatically dropped in my blog through my keyboard πŸ˜›

    It’s true I blog less and less these days firstly because pas get time em dans la semaine and the weekend is spent in catching up with the sleep for last week and re-energizing to gather the strength for the following week. πŸ™ But whenever I come upon anything I wish to share, I jot down some words into my blog πŸ˜‰

  • @Yashvin–>LOL. . sa ti bsn attand sa. . xD. . comment dire mo nom = sa meme pli common mot ki tou dimoune servi. . xD

    Reason why I’m not blogging: Twitter, web tech assignment, business plan, Human computer interaction assignment, test week, exams. All in space of 1.5 months! I’ve already prepared 2 topics to blog on among which 1 will be a “hot” post for which I am sure that I will get flamed by a few people. .

  • I started out blogging in 2004 but shut down all my personal/private blogs to concentrate on a professional one. The major reason is that I needed privacy in my new job. However, maintaining a professional blog is quite easy as I’m writing on subjects that I really master.

    The blog maintaining problem might also come from the lack of discipline and planning. I personally use mind mapping to prepare the different articles. This allows me to prepare topics. I however do not, for the time being, concentrate on time and regularity as it all depends on the time I have available after work and all the side activities I have.

  • For myself it cannot be summed up plainly to a lack of time or laziness, it’s more a question of making the most of my spare time.

    On week-days, I spend around 9hrs in office in front of a computer, i need to exercise, i need to pratice my instrument, read the Web, read my book… Until recently a used be a KDE 4.x SVN update addict. Time being scarce, I started to prioritorize those needs and blogging fell last on my list.

  • Keeping a blog alive is hard work! I know what I’m talking about because I was on hiatus for 2 weeks – lack of inspiration, busy with other stuff, laziness…!

  • The Will of Sawan

    Don’t have time to blog, or too lazy?
    Vlog on Youtube instead!

    Odd hearing that ! With plenty of time now available ,I am visiting
    lots of blogs – even foreign ones . I thought blogging was as natural as
    breathing for you .

    I went on a Zimbabwean blog some time ago . The hatred and violence there was incredible . I am convinced I have one or two suggestions which all parties would have found acceptable or at least interesting .
    But it was such violent page ; I could not type a single word .

    In Mauritius despite our bigotry and prejudices , we don’t usually show excessive disrespect for others . That is visible in blogs too .
    It’s always good to hear from other people – even on Apollo noodles

    So , keep at it !!!!!
