ditching the blog?

For a while now I've been wrestling with the idea of continuing to blog vs. ditching blogging altogether.  I started this blog before EVERYONE was on facebook (hard to remember times like that isn't it?), and over time I've just been using facebook more and more, and blogging less and less. Facebook is definitely easier than blogging for me.  It takes less time, there are a lot more people "following me" over there, vs. me not really knowing how many people read the blog, I can post something and get almost immediate responses to my questions,  uploading pictures to share is easier, and of course, it takes less time, lol! 
I didn't stop blogging entirely because I have nothing to say on here, but more that I'm not sure my current readers would be interested in anything I have to say.  This blog originally came about as a way to keep extended family updated on what's going on here with some pictures thrown in, and it hasn't really evolved much past that.  I have no desire to be a full time blogger who earns a living blogging.  Lord knows I am not a good enough writer for that.  But, there are times I have something I want to say and get some outside input on, or I have an idea to share that might help other people out, but then I hesitate to post because I don't want to offend anyone, and I definitely don't want to bore people with mundane crap.  There is enough crap on the internet already, I don't need to add to it.
So what say you people of blog land?  How do you feel about blogging?  I'll be honest and tell you I don't read nearly as many as I used to BF (before facebook).  I still have a ton in my google reader, but I sometimes just skim or even skip completely a lot of the posts.  Who knows, maybe I'll just keep blogging for me, and if anyone reads it, yay, and if not all well.  Blogging may help me out more than it helps anyone else anyway. When I've had a rough day, or am going through something difficult, sometimes I just want to talk about it, and I thin kmy poor husband gets sick of hearing about it from me.  Not that he's not understanding and sympathetic, but when he's the only ear I'm always bending about the same stuff, I think it wears on him too.
