Where has all the enthusiasm gone?
See I'm not dead...
just a bit disoriented!!
Has the blogging craze started to wane?
Or should I just seek out some new players?
Or should we all just sing "Auld Lang Syne" as we bury our blogsites?
At the time of writing my sidebar blogroll is crammed full of "Ho Huumm"
Now I'm as guilty as anyone else here Holtieshouse is down from almost daily to a couple of times a week, and those couple of times are "weak" efforts usually, Peter's Pictures last entry... 2 years ago, Poetry Galore last entry... 1 year ago.
My blog roll off 49 contains 19 sites that have not posted for 1 month or more, much more in a lot of cases, I must admit that 2 of these have an excellent excuse, they died, but in so many instances it appears to be more a lack of interest.
Of the remaining sites there are 7 who have not posted for between 1 and 4 weeks which leaves us about 20 who are posting at least semi-regularly, I make these observations only as observations not criticisms or notes of impending doom, it is never the less sad to see the enthusiasm that once fired us up now appears to be little more than embers in so many cases.
One who has done something different about this situation is my friend
Marti who has invited guest writers to fill in some of the voids that her very busy life has created.
I mentioned that 2 of my blogroll have departed for ever, they still have a place on my blogroll and in my heart.
