DeBlog: Are Facebook And Twitter Killing The Blog?

By Jason DeRusha, WCCO-TV

My blogging has been a bit pathetic lately. I can make a lot of excuses — but the biggest one is that I feel like I’m already sharing everything interesting in the form of 140 character updates.

I’m a constant Tweeter, writing @DeRushaJ and @DeRushaEats. I post updates on Facebook and a Facebook fan page (Like me!).

So if you follow me there, you already know that a valet crashed my car on Saturday night, after I emceed a fundraiser gala for Restart, Inc.

You already know that I gave the keynote address at the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association in Madison.

You already know that last night’s Good Question was about whether Mexico is safe.

You know that I’ve been filling in on the morning anchor desk with Angela Davis.

So what’s left for me to blog about here? I do write about food at once a week. There are comments enabled on all of the Good Question stories, so you can share thoughts there.

If you’re a blogger — has Facebook and Twitter changed the way you blog? How do you stay motivated to write? Do you save stuff from your social media networks so you have good material to blog about? Help me!
