Peter has done a great job with that article. All of the points are more than valid. I especially agree about the face-to-face part. When working with people there is no substitute for face-to-face conversations. That is by far the best way to build relationships. Not always possible unfortunately."
Unfortunately the same thing has happened to me as well. Sometimes I just don't have the time to update my blog or do some promotion. Even though I start worrying about it, I wait and wait. That is definitely something that should not be done for a successful blog. Having a plan to stick to is the best way to get rid of similar situations and still it is not a 100% guarantee that it won't happen. "
Hey Yonatan, You are right that blogging about business can sometimes be a boring topic to read. In my opinion however, mountain biking, which I mentioned just goes a bit too far and coming up with a full article, dedicated to it can hardly fit well. Other than that as I explain in the next sentence of the article, there is no problem to occasionally include some personal notes here and there, just to make things more interesting and engaging. The problem with those types of personal articles is that even though there will be people, interested in them, not everyone likes them (the bigger portion of people if you ask me). I prefer reading on the topic too with very rare exceptions. Either way, thanks for stopping by and sharing your point of view. :)"
A really thought-provoking post there. Even though social media's purpose is to connect people from around the globe, it might be somewhat true that it limits your real-word relationships. The problem doesn't come only with social media, rather with the whole computer and internet industry. And still in my opinion whether you will communicate face-to-face or not is totally your decision and you can't blame social media or anything else for that matter. It is your fault if you don't and those are just excuses. "
