This morning I read two blog posts talking about how blogging is dead. I stopped to think on it for a second, like I usually do when I read about the death of blogging and what that means since, you know, I still do it, and this morning I zeroed in on how often I read blogs anymore. The answer is not very often at all. The fact that I am telling you this story based on me reading two blog posts this morning that contained multiple paragraphs full of honest to god words in a single day is pretty unusual.
I don't know what it means... maybe it is a signal I am moving more and more away from this past time I have loved for so long, or maybe it is what other bloggers are saying, that it is more evidence of the death of blogs everywhere. Maybe I no longer read because so few people are still writing. And maybe I have a harder time writing because in a lot of ways blogging is a conversation, even while it is your personal site and your personal story. We feed off of each other, picking up ideas from one post to spin off our own unique thoughts and create our own.
Anyway, I don't have much to say on it really. But in years past I would have written down at least these few thoughts, adding to the conversation, so I decided to do that again today. Just talking for the sake of talking, or blogging for the sake of blogging. Hoping someone is listening, and that this post might possibly contribute to someone elses unique addition to the conversation.
