Before Twitter, before Facebook, there were blogs. People who shared an interest in the blog’s theme congregated there and had conversations. The general tone was positive, even when people disagreed. As the social media space deteriorates and Twitter’s future is in doubt, storyteller and freelancer Monique Judge suggests a return to blogging as the primary means of online social engagement. Is such a pivot possible? Neville and Shel share their thoughts in this short midweek episode.
The next monthly, long-form episode of FIR will drop on Monday, February 20.
We host a Communicators Zoom Chat each Thursday at 1 p.m. ET. For credentials needed to participate, contact Shel or Neville directly, request the credentials in our Facebook group, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special thanks to Jay Moonah for the opening and closing music.
