Blogging, Meet Medium. Please Procreate.

Part of the problem, at least for us bloggers who never managed to amass a particularly large following is that Facebook became a better publishing destination as far as getting the most eyeballs, especially for those blogs primarily comprised of short snippets coupled with some sort’ve reflection or analysis. RSS seems to have fallen out of fashion among general-audience users, and these platforms have become people’s primary and in some case sole source for content.

It seems to me what we really need is some sort’ve social network that’s built around an open-xml standard that includes the ability to somehow serve the exact same content in the form of a blog, or a social network, etc.

Essentially, we need an open social network where all of our various feeds that intermingle on the timeline our controlled by the creator directly and not the platform itself.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
