I can’t keep up with all of this stuff. Just as I’m working on getting a blog going myself, I read this last week – < HREF="http://www.wired.com/entertainment/theweb/magazine/16-11/st_essay" REL="nofollow">Twitter, Flickr, Facebook Make Blogs Look So 2004<>. Looks like you’re right on target. Yeah, and I’m confused like I’ve been partying like it’s 1999. But that could be the beer. I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it in no time.And speaking of stuff I’m feeling left out on. Here’s a couple of articles about the magazine end of the publishing world (and the advertising that goes along with them). Probably won’t interest anyone except me, but it was some really fun reading I did this weekend.By a photographer who’s pretty hot right now about < HREF="http://blog.vincentlaforet.com/2008/11/17/the-perfect-storm-has-arrived/" REL="nofollow">the state of the industry<>, a blog post by < HREF="http://www.aphotoeditor.com/2008/11/06/a-call-for-change-in-the-publishing-industry/" REL="nofollow">a photo editor<>, and something else from < HREF="http://adage.com/mediaworks/article?article_id=132782" REL="nofollow">AdAge<>. And there’s even a website that for keeping a < HREF="http://www.magazinedeathpool.com/magazine_death_pool/" REL="nofollow">deathwatch on magazines<>. Basically what they are saying is that people in my industry really have to come up with some different ways of doing things. Not that I didn’t already know that, but still. “I have no idea what I’m doing”You and several thousand of us, m’dear. But I am already finding that I twitter about stuff that I’d never blog about, and vice-versa, which has to be good. jennifer, the only thing I’ve learnt about prognosications is that they’re all wrong. But it’s delicious/scary (depending on how much one has in the bank) to ponder the possibilities. What’s your take?cheryl, I suspect it will take me some time to find my feet but, woo-hoo, I’ll have a fun time thrashing around meanwhile… Right now I’m mostly thinking I need to go to bed. A lot of what that photographer is saying is stuff I was already thinking. It was just a little frightening to see how far down the line some of this stuff is going. I hadn’t quite put together how much the auto advertising filtered down through the rest of things, but it makes sense.I think that the death knell of the magazines is a little exaggerated, but they are closer to the action than I am. It seems that so many people’s cushion is turning out to be a lot less than they thought. A lot of people and businesses may not be able to hold out long enough for things to turn back – and that fact combined with online trends looks like something new. But I’m rambling, I think. Doesn’t it really seem like the times are changin’ tho? Marketing always changes, and those that anticipate and roll with it prosper. Those that don’t wither. I have never really “got” twitter. I mean– I use it? Periodically? I don’t send the updates to my cellphone though– that seems annoying. Frankly the “medium form” of blogs is already short enough– one liners! One-liners we’ve been reduced to! jennifer, bed is good. Unfortunately it did me no good last night; I seem to be in a no-sleep phase. Hate that.mordicai, I think it might be useful for signposting–great article here! buses stopping running on this route! etc.–and triumphs: I won! (Can you spell <>wishful thinking<>?)
