Laura Kalbag on blogging – Colin Devroe (cdevroe.com)

In fact, I only syndicate to Micro.blog currently because it is effortless. I do not syndicate to any other social network. I sometimes wish that I were doing so again because I know I would get more readers here as a result, but – as Laura rightfully spells out – I just don’t have the time or energy to devote to getting that working again. I’ve spent countless hours trying to get it to work the way that I’d want it to (and took the time to catalog those issues here on my blog) and I’m just not going to do it again.

Oh my gosh! Yes, I’ve felt the same way for a while. I stopped syndicating links to social media — facebook, twitter — for a few months. I did see a drop off in traffic so I started doing it again. But … if felt forced. I don’t want to do this. Now that I know that I am in good company, I’ll stop doing it again.

It feels hypocritical to criticize social silos while using them to syndicate my content.
