Twitter and Facebook have killed the personal blog. Patcampbell.net is the perfect example. In its heyday (really back when it was musicslave.com), I would post here three to four times a week, and sometimes (rarely) multiple times in a day. I no longer feel the desire to write lengthy (or even short) posts detailing my thoughts about books, movies, religion, politics, my family, dog, etc. Why bother when a.) a 140 character or less tweet will suffice and b.) nobody is going to read anything longer than 140 characters anyway?

But my pessimism for the personal blog is not shared by my friend Corrie. She’s relaunching her own personal blog to write about. . . well, pretty much whatever interests her. If anybody still checks in here occasionally, you should check out Linus Hates Me. I think that you’ll find that it’s well written and updated far more frequently than this wasteland.

Oh, and here’s a gratuitous picture of my cute kids from Easter. Simon can’t be serious for more than 10 seconds at a time, which makes taking pictures challenging.

I think my lack of updates has pretty much caused all my readers to move on. Except for one, maybe (Hi, nod!). But for those of you who are still reading, I wanted to throw this one out there: Kate is blogging again.

It’s mostly quilting and craft-focused, but it’s definitely worth poking around. I have very little interest in crafts and quilting, but even I find it interesting. So check out the newly resurrected KCQuilts Blog.

And apparently it is the UK government. Distrubing.

A Beginner’s Guide to Troubleshooting Light

This is an excellent, easy-to-read introduction to getting the correct exposure from a DSLR, and is the perfect follow-up to my 2008 Lessons in Photography post.

The Onion has done it again. Too funny.

Seriously? The Vatican on YouTube? Cool.

Can the Palm Pre give the iPhone a run for it’s money? Palm should send me one so I can give an informed opinion.

Manage your snail-mail online? I am intrigued. What do you think?
