Is the Blogosphere Dead?
I’ve been blogging for many…many years, and it seems like when I started there were tons and tons of bloggers. Now it seems to be a dyeing art. Many of the people i use to blog with are either gone, or blogging so sparsely it’s like the blog on it’s last leg.
Is this just my perception, or is there an ugly truth to this? Maybe there are new blogs opening every day, and I’m just not aware of them. Perhaps I’m just said of people I’ve grown to love, and read their adventures are suddenly silent, and I miss them. This isn’t a new thing in the blogosphere, but one I can never get use to. I still miss the Jong’s of the world. The world moves on though and ever revolves.
If the blogosphere is being killed, what is doing the killing. Was the death of Google RSS reader, the thing that stuck a knife in it? Personally I never used an RSS reader, i use my blogroll. If i liked you, that’s where you ended up and I tried to read you. Then again maybe I’m becoming a blogging relic, where as if I can’t do something the easy way, I’m not going to do it.
I love this hobby, and it saddens me that perhaps the golden age of blogging is gone, then who knows maybe I’m just way wrong. I hope I am. I hope someone calls me out and says I’m insane, and that the blogosphere is alive and well.
I don’t know what the future will bring to this hobby called blogging, but as long as I enjoy doing it, I’m going to try my hardest to keep on doing it.
