Micro Blogging

Since Blogger was launched in the 1990s, blogs have reshaped the web, impacted politics, shaken up journalism, and enabled millions of people to have a voice and connect with others. And some of us thought that the entire enchilada was just getting started. It had evolved from Web sites into a more current information distributor. A dancing blog gave us our own voice on the internet. It was a place to collect and share things with our dance world that we found interesting - whether our political commentary, a personal dance diary, or links to web sites we wanted to remember. Then came the Trump Pandemic and Social Dancing came to a stand still.

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing
is not to stop questioning.” —Albert Einstein.

The Micros arrive slowly at the beginning of this century, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and others. Micro blogging is an online medium that exists as a specific form of blogging. A micro-blog differs from a traditional blog in that its content is typically smaller in both actual and aggregated file size. Micro-blogs allow users to exchange small elements of content such as sentences, individual images, or video links, which may be the major reason for their popularity. These small messages are sometimes called micro posts. As with traditional blogging, micro-bloggers post about a wide range of topics.

"Blogging may be good for our dance reputation. A good entry in a blog
may set us apart as helpful people in our cultural dancing."
