The Guardian's social mediaista journo extraordinaire Bobbie Johnson has stopped blogging. On his blog he points to one of his three social networks (Twitter, Flickr or Facebook) or his Guardian articles if you want to follow what he's saying.

I think that Bobbie is being a bit silly, not to mention short-termist if he really thinks that services such as Twitter or Facebook are ready to replace the 'traditional' blog.
IMHO they are great companion tools to a blog - for now - but that's as far as they go.

I think it's a fair comment to say that he doesn't have enough time to do justice to a blog, though - is it better to have a blog filled with daily nonsense, or simply spend your time researching and writing better stories, and posting the odd update via other platforms?
(insert joke about how my blog is filled with daily fluff here)

He does still have a blog site that has links to his other places. He is still writing his own stuff on websites. Would be good to see all the content there though, rather than just some logos pointing to other networks.
And I thinks blogs with daily fluff are the best! :-)

Actually, I've not killed the blog or anything like that. I'm just in the process of retooling bobbiejohnson.org to be better for occasional posts rather than daily updates.
(I did something similar before, about five years ago).
Frankly, I don't think I've added much value to my personal blog in the past year, and want to improve that situation. (Unlike Drew's comment above, I've decided I'm not of a big fan of making my blog an aggregation of my updates across many other services: I'd rather centralise what I do and then push OUT to those other services)
Plus I've never suggested that Twitter or Facebook will replace the blog: those are simply places which people can look for me in the interim period. It's not rocket science, it's just about doing what's useful and valuable.
