Hello World. 4 years later!

by Amit Ranjan on June 28, 2012

I’ve been meaning to get back to blogging.

Its been a hiatus of 4 years since I last blogged. The web has changed so much. Facebook, Twitter rule the social web.. YouTube is unassailable in video… Delicious, Slide are dead… Flickr, Digg, Ning are also rans. SlideShare is now part of LinkedIn, which is rocking professional networking. There are countless new kids on the block. And blogging itself is past its prime. Hard to imagine!

Hi Amit

Chanced upon your blog today and notice you’ve started blogging (again) just recently. Also it is nice to note that you’re cofounder of Slideshare.

Since you live in Delhi, you might have some views on how India’s governance needs to be changed. If good governance interests you, please drop by at my blog http://sabhlokcity.com/ and have a browse through my book, http://bfn.sabhlokcity.com/.

Serious blogging continues as before (thankfully!) … in fact it has grown.

Casual blogging has lost to microblogs, photoblogs, Facebook newsfeeds etc.

I beleive that what you mean by ‘blogging is past its primetime’ is that it is no more hobby, to pass time.
After a passage of FOUR (!) years, Is it that you see blogging a more sincere form of expression of free thought or It it that people who have ‘serious’ occupations need explore other platforms for expression of thier views on those ‘serious’ matters or Is it that other social media forrmats have taken over the space?
It would be intersting to know your informal as well as structured, considered views…..

Amit Ranjan July 5, 2012 at 2:21 am


I think blogging has splintered into its sub-parts: (opinion based) blogging, microblogging (Twitter/facebook), photoblogging (tumblr). If blogs started as a “personal diary”, that diary is probably now the twitter or facebook newsfeed.

By serious blogging, I meant opinion based blogging.

VikiMichaelis July 7, 2012 at 12:06 pm

I am surprised that you consider Blogging to be past its prime. For me it is a medium which is still evolving, especially as more and more people become involved and express themselves either through their own Blogs or through those provided by such services as WordPress, Tumblr and Blogger.
