Just lately I have been looking for several blogs that I enjoyed reading in the last year
and found.... nothing!
So, I guess, those were the fly-by-night blogs that crop up and vanish within a short time.
Not so much different from restaurants.
Just as soon as I find one that I like eating at, poof it's gone.
Perhaps, replaced by another or by a fast food one or just a "For rent" sign.
Of course I do not eat out on a daily basis, so maybe that one was around for a year or so, and then went up in smoke - not literally I hope.
Although that has happened occasionally.
Guess it's better to loose it to smoke than loose one's shirt operating one :-)!
So why do blogs come and go?
That IS a question I have asked myself.
And the answers I came up with are (MAYBE):
too time consuming
one has writers block
one is too obsessed with other things
Or that readers no longer visit?
Or that comments become too personal. One does hate to be told truths, that may hurt.
Of course readers may misunderstand.
Especially in these times when - methinks - enjoying sarcasm, tongue-in-cheek, or punning have become lost in the web of immediate breaking news, true or hyped!
Ah well, one does one's best to amuse one's chers readers and yet.
So, I do thank all of you who make an effort to visit this blog ...
And have a Happy Day!
