Social Media: Seeds for Blogging?

Wil Wheaton (who played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek:TNG) had an interesting post on his blog. He talks about how seeds for ideas that could have sprouted into posts on his blog often seem to get spent on social media.

I've noticed the same thing. I've grown quite a bit, but a lot of my early writing and social media posting was reactive. It was born mostly out of what am I excited or pissed off about RIGHT NOW. After I got a Twitter account, I could just blow all that stuff out in 140 characters. I noticed my blogging dropped off somewhat.

On the bright side, rather than blogging about what I'm pissed off about, I actually had to think of content. I'm not sure which is better.
