I haven’t been blogging recently for a number of reasons. Firstly the demise of my server took some wind out of my sails. It was the second time it happened and to start all over again (although I did save most of my posts this time) it sort of deflated me.
Also while I really don’t care whether anyone reads this or not, I do wonder who is out there. But mostly I wonder whether the days of the humble solo blogger is numbered, if not over already.
Look at the most read blogs like Larvatus Prodeo and Club Troppo are written by a number of contributors rather than one. The same has happened to football bloggers where many have shifted from their own blogs to write on website such as The Roar.
Of course it makes sense. Being in a blog with many contributors means that you don’t have to keep up the blog all by yourself and there are many more readers.
I guess there may be also more pressure to write good stuff all the time as you don’t want to ‘let the team down’.
Me? I’ll continue here. As I said doesn’t matter if I write stuff that only I will read. A bit like useless pottering in a shed. It is ultimately a bit of a hobby and a diversion from everyday life.
