It seems that few of my blogging friends are keeping up the faith these days. I'm no angel myself, averaging a post every 3 weeks or so, but tonight while doing my usual Firefox multi-tab extravaganza, I noticed that two of the blogs I follow are simply gone. Poof.
But these fine erstwhile bloggers are regular Facebook posters, as are most of the other bloggers I follow. So has blogging gone the way of the hand-written letter? Cast off in favor of shorter, more immediate and informal one-off status updates? I hope not, because a status update on Facebook doesn't really give you a chance to explain what's making you tick.
