Something I have to say

I started this blog in Sept 2004, just about 3 1/2 years ago. When I started I went around and found other blogs that I liked and started reading them. Now, I don't always comment. I don't always have something to say. Sometimes I just like reading about other people. I live in my head all the time. Sometimes I like to get out of my head and into someone else's.

Anyway, over time my reading shifted, I stopped reading some, I picked up others, blah, blah, blah. Yesterday I was going through some old bookmarks on my old computer and I came across some blogs I haven't read in a while. I went to see what they were up to and almost all of them have just stopped posting. No goodbye. No taking a break. No screw you. Just gone. Now some of these people were good enough writers that they ended up getting book deals. Now they are just gone. That makes me sad. I can't help but wonder what happened. Did they give up on their weight loss/athletic pursuits? Did something happen to them? Did they just get bored? You all know how you feel you know someone from reading their blog. When they just disappear it makes me wonder.

Anyway, if you plan on stopping blogging, even for a while, just leave a note saying so. Don't leave those of us who read you hanging out there like a bunch of chandeliers. I may not always comment, but I guarantee I'm always reading. Thank you.

Yeah, it's sad when bloggers fade away. I always hope they are doing well.

Commenting on blogs is definitely tough. Keeping up with all blogs take a lot of time. If only there were a way to comment on a post directly from my RSS feed monitor. That would be cool.

Take care. I'm still out here, lurking in the background.
