A good reason to social blog or microblog is to get things done when we have limited time to spare. We may be busy with other commitments or activities that require hours daily so we have to make do with what little time we have left to blog or share. Any useful knowledge learned every day can be shared with others easily in a short write-up, even while traveling on a train or subway.

Social Blogging Vs WordPress Microblogging
Compared to social blogs, I believe microblogs is better because it is search engine friendly. Blog web traffic is mostly fresh new clicks from Google searches so there is no absolute need to build a signup group of followers for monetary success e.g. ads monetization.
Tweets can reach out to a lot of people quickly too to build an audience with certain content but they are short-lived yet having a huge number of followers is practically free targeted marketing from there onwards. Consistent tweeting can also be taxing on our time and arduous especially if they are not gratifying or paying off.
A good idea is to get the more important task or stuff done or understood first before everything else. More often than we expected, we mistook, misunderstood, sidetracked, focused on the secondary or even inconsequential details, and neglected the most important point or purpose in life till it is too late.
We may choose to microblog because of time constraints, whether it is Typeshare, WordPress, or YouTube Shorts, do what you can. Even a good blog with over 100 short posts should generate substantial visitor traffic as well.
However, it is of utmost importance to take frequent breaks from all the hustles and bustles of daily life and learn to relax more and well.
Whatever you write and do, be wholesome.
Which microblogging platforms have become popular?
What is popular may not always be right. But sometimes they do. Some content formats will do better on some platforms. Vlogs may work on Facebook Reels, YouTube Shorts, Twitter, and especially TikTok. Microblogging with static visual content may work well on Pinterest, especially Instagram. With frequent bursts of ideas, Twitter (Is it still popular?) can be the most convenient one.
