Purely by accident, I came by my very first blog post via a google search for something else (but still including sgwordy - let's not kid ourselves that I'm some kind of presence offered up by google searches). I barely remember writing it but all the sentiments remain: I still mourn that email is dead all these years later. And now blogs are dead. Well, mine at least. Though I like knowing it's here for the memories, and if I ever get a wild hair to write something (wild hair here), it's pretty obvious it's in some kind of comatose state. I don't think it's just me either. Of the blog community of which I used to be a part, I'd say about 95% of those blots are quiet now. It feels like the only ones that really continued are those that were turned into commercial ventures.
I wonder if other folks visit their quiet blog corners and smile at the memories. I know I do. And, hell, I might even get around to writing up a 2017 favorites post... be it ever so late.
