With the New Year there is little doubt there will be new technology. And this new technology will change the way we blog. The thing I don’t know is how. But I’m both excited and apprehensive about it.

I’m excited because I think it’s so cool to learn new, efficient ways of doing posts, including media and reaching readers. I think Twitter has been one of my favorites, but I also love WordPress and Hootsuite. Great tools! They all make my life easier in different ways.

I’m apprehensive because learning new technology takes time. And because it isn’t always better. Facebook seems to change things just to change them, and sometimes I like the old way of doing things better than the “improved” ways.

I don’t know what the next big thing is coming down the pipe, but I’d love to hear from readers if they have any thoughts on what’s next. Tell me–is there anything you’ve see that you think is going to hit it big? Anything you’d like to see make the cut and take off?

I’d like to see a better way to video chat with multiple people. I’d love to be able to collaborate on projects with others in real time in an easy format that allows discussion and images to be included. There are currently some things like this out there, but none that I’ve really found work well for my purposes.

So which is it for you–are you more excited or apprehensive about what the coming months will bring?
