Blogging seems to be a dying art.

It started when Laura tweeted: 'Does anyone actually still blog nowadays?'
Danica replied: 'Blogging seems to be a dying art.'

I don't blog as much as I used to. I still follow many blogs but I don't comment as much as I used to. I don't tweet as much as I used to. And Instagram? Only one snapshot this month.

And then on the same day, Tatiana published this post'This past summer I read about the fact that researchers have discovered that one surprising trait of happy and content people is not to which degree they offer empathy or solace to someone dealing with something difficult but the degree to which they genuinely celebrate the goodness in the lives of others.'

There's the chronic lack of time and then the chronic lack of inspiration. But are we becoming lazy? Can't we have conversations that are longer than 140 characters? Are we becoming selfish, less likely to take the time to leave a genuine comment? Or are we just getting older and changing some of our priorities? 

I don't know. What do you think?
