Beth posted a link on Facebook that I found quite interesting. It's an article from the New York Times, "When the Thrill of Blogging is Gone".
"According to a 2008 survey by Technorati, which runs a search engine for blogs, only 7.4 million out of the 133 million blogs the company tracks had been updated in the past 120 days. That translates to 95 percent of blogs being essentially abandoned, left to lie fallow on the Web, where they become public remnants of a dream — or at least an ambition — unfulfilled."
Right now I can't imagine not blogging. But I remember my early days on the Internet.. You could never have convinced me then that I'd ever abandon that "Christian 50's plus" chat room where I met so many charming, wonderful friends. I've met a lot of them face to face and visited their homes; I still keep in touch with many.
But if you get enough trolls in one spot, it'll turn you against a thing pretty fast. You couldn't pay me to go to any chat room now. I don't do instant messages any more, either.
So really, it's anybody's guess how long I'll be doing this.
