All Quiet on the Blogging Front

Well it's February 7th and I'm JUST getting around to writing my first official blog post of 2011. The wind has long left the sails of this blog over the past year. The biggest single reason for the lack of blog content is Social Networking. I find it much easier (and more convenient) to post mini-bursts of random thoughts on Facebook and Twitter rather than spending time and composing/editing a long post on this blog. Please do continue to follow/friend me at http://www.facebook.com/jordan.rose and @jordanlrose. I post there often and the forum for commenting is much more visible than on here. It's also much easier to distribute posts, pictures and video about my kids on Facebook and get it instantly sent out to friends and family. That quirky Zuckerberg fellow sure was onto something a few years ago (whether he stole the idea or not).

Now.... is this blog going to fold? No, not at all. I still very much enjoy writing my movie reviews (and I've heard from several of you in person that you enjoy reading them), so that will continue in earnest. I just haven't seen a new movie in the theater in 2011 yet. For those of you who don't know, I give a brief one-paragraph review of movies I watch via Netflix through the Flixster Movies app on Facebook.

I've changed the name of the blog and may alter the blog design to have it focus more on movies. Perhaps I will be inspired to write long non-movie themed posts from time to time but they will be few and far between for certain. For now, enjoy the upcoming Oscar season. I will be posting my predictions for the major awards in a week or so.
