Why are blogs meant to be forgotten? / by Joseph Palumbo

Real Life vs. Virtual

Every blog is conceived with the best intentions, but all too easily they fall by the wayside. It's too easy to live passively as a consumer rather than live actively as a producer. 

But even then, it's such a challenge in this new world of social media to be both present and active in the real world while stopping to update the virtual one. Tonight at dinner, at Schilos, I kept stopping to tweet and take pictures of what was going on around me because that's what I see so many people doing, but it kept me from being engaged with my family in the present. 

Always kind of a tough one, to figure out the balance.
