i don't know what impact google+ will eventually have. i think their recent redesign is a good step and i'd love it if it came to replace facebook (mostly because i have the feeling that google is less evil than zuckerberg). that might be wishful thinking on both counts. i find that if i actually want to be able to find a link to something interesting again, i still blog it or put it up on g+ rather than on FB, with their endless redesigns and rejigging of how you can see content and their lack of searchability within one's own timeline. sharing on facebook is like dumping something into a black hole - you may never see it again.
all of this said, i think that still, when i have something really awesome that i (or sabin) made, i still want to share it on my blog. that desire is strong - to preserve it there, even if just for myself and the sake of my own memory, but also to share it with those who read/look. strangely it still seems like there are plenty of readers, but they seldom comment anymore. i'm guilty of the same. i'd say that's a product of us all reading via flipboard or feedly or whatever app on our various devices. i know that the thought of writing out a comment on my iPhone or iPad screen stops me many times from leaving anything of substance, so often i don't comment at all.
it's interesting to see how and where this is all evolving. and how technologies take us places we had never imagined.
