As readers of this blog well know, I haven’t been very active for the last year. This is mainly because I’ve been using live streaming apps from my mobile phone to interact with viewers. I’ve been reading from several sources that most people consider blogs to be dead now (some live streamers saying things like “do people still read those?”). There is quite a difference between a static blog post with still photos, and a live interactive video stream. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t an audience for blogs anymore. It just means that people have other things to look at also.
I’m moving in the direction of a weekly show on a platform called Brocast.com, with the possibility of streaming my own show on my own website, TaiwanLiveTV. I don’t think I want to embed the talk show broadcasts here, although some content like the GT-R in my neighborhood fit right in line with my usual content on this blog, so I will continue to embed relevant stuff from live streams here on the blog.
Things certainly have changed in the last year! I remember when this blog won Best Taiwan Blog a few years in a row. Recently, a Taiwan blogger made a list of prominent Taiwan blogs, asking if there were any blogs he might have missed. This blog wasn’t on the list. He doesn’t know about it. I’m not going to let this blog die out entirely, and I do have some new interesting photography to show you in the near future. In the meantime, I’m experimenting with infused rum and I’ll let you know how that’s going in a future post. Thanks for reading!
