Facebook killed the bloggie star...

Well, not just Facebook - I've just not a lot to say.  This blog has been mostly about Triathlon and training, and some humorous other stuff along the way.  Not a lot of funny stuff going on lately.  Even less triathlon or training!  At least for me.  Some of you are training like crazy and getting ready for first Ironmans and what-not.  That's completely awesome...I lurk on your blogs and love to read your latest adventures.  

This isn't a farewell post by any means.  Just an explanation as to wassup in the life of Bigun.  The blog life.  My writing motivation is just diminished.  Sorry folks.  I do spend a ton of time on Facebook, and for those of you making the Facebook rounds, well, we know.  Facebooking is 10 times easier than blogging.  At least when you have just a little bit to say.

In time I'll be back.  I enjoyed blogging at one point, and will again.  I'll be training again, and getting ready for some new race.  In the mean time - you guys and gals keep up the good training and racing - and blogging!

Hey Bigun,

I just post my triathlon training stuff on Livejournal, and these are then posted on Facebook. Saves duplicating entries, keep the long entries, race reports etc on Livejournal.

So I hang out on Facebook for keeping up with my friends, they get to see race reports etc. as I post on Livejournal.

Here is hoping you have a strong racing season in 2009!

Get back on Twitter? What is easier than 140 characters?

Rest your creativity and come back soon.

Oh, you need to sign up for B2B... Just do it!

Now I am going to leave a crude message on your facebook wall ;)

Thats a shame but understandable ... I used to hate Facebook but I am slowly coming round :) Hopefully I'll find you on Facebook.

I have to take vacations from blogging or else I'd burn out. Signing up for B2B sounds like a great idea to me :-)

Thanks for checking in.

Hey, blogging shouldn't feel like *work* if we aren't going to get paid!

Can I just copy and paste this post? Kidding of course but same here.

Jill said...

I agree! I actually deleted my blog this past weekend. Everyone just knew WAY too much ...

I had a notion to write a post called "How Facebook Killed the Blog" but I think I might skip it now :-)

I just need a way to download my brain while I do laundry dishes and (see if I say Tac that would just be wrong in more ways then I can count) and I can go back to blogging. But for now, it's FB
