From Nathan Bransford:
Where have all the bloggers gone? Long time passing. I want to know.
I miss the blogosphere.
There was a time, between 2007-2009, when everyone had a blog. It was peak blog. Blogspot and WordPress. Blog rolls and tagging. Blog awards and comments of the week.
I started feeling the decline in 2011, and in 2013 it was really apparent. Now, it’s a veritable ghost town.
Maybe I’m just getting old, but I really miss that time. Peak blog coincided with economic calamity, and the entire world was on edge (note: I don’t think there was a connection. I think.). But there was something comforting in the sense of simultaneous community and individuality, people pioneering their own space but making sure to check in on what everyone else was doing.
