Blogging on the Wane?

Well, my blog seems to be. This article in The New York Times finds that blogs are being eclipsed by social media like Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. After all, a blog post requires a lot more time and thought than a 140-character tweet or a Facebook status update. During the current crisis across the Arab world, I'm spending a lot of time on Twitter to get updates from folks on site (although a lot of the updates are just rehashes of what Al Jazeera is broadcasting).
