Humour, comics, tech, law, software, reviews, essays, articles and HOWTOs intermingled with random philosophy now and then
Internet and Blogging by
I'm subscribed to around 20 to 30 blogs through Live Bookmarks in Firefox and a few more blogs which I check out occasionally (without being subscribed to them). I don't know if it is the time of the year, but most of these blogs have gone quiet of late. Some haven't received updates in several months now while others have slowed down gradually and come to a standstill. It's not just one or two blogs. Dozens of blogs which were active a few months ago have suddenly experienced a freeze mode.
I cannot find any reasons for this broad trend although I do think that a lot of people start blogging at a frenetic pace and then find that they cannot keep up because they're too busy, lack the motivation to write or simply don't have anything to talk about. I know it's not easy and especially when creative inspiration is at its lowest ebb. I often start writing at random and find that I am writing nonsense, so I click the "delete" button. You won't believe how many articles I've deleted that way. In short it takes a lot of effort just to write something meaningful when you're short of ideas.
Nevertheless, I wanted to break the trend in case you belong to my little piece of the web, so you have something to check out.
