With fewer and fewer people sharing and collaborating on Twitter, LinkedIn updates becoming a hybrid between Facebook and Twitter chats, I’ve been relying on my Feedly news aggregator to bring me new content from blogs, feeds, EdTech and tech news sites, etc.
I still subscribe to some websites, but even those are publishing less and less, a trend that’s been growing over the last year or so.
I’ve found myself unsubscribing from a number of them too. It’s nothing personal; it’s not that I don’t want or like the updates, it’s more to do with either my changing need to have an email update or find it elsewhere or that my needs have moved on and I don’t find value in the newsletter/updates any more.
What is important, however, is that we each continue our writing and social sharing using the platform we want to use. I’ve spoken to a few EdTech bloggers recently, and most agree the blog audience has dropped off(including the comments), and there are many more places to write our thoughts about our work. But we still get something out of our own humble blog.
