I’m rather partial to blogging. Problem is, I used to love it. There are several reasons I can think of, as opposed to divine from another source:
Facebook and Twitter have eroded the sense of community the blogosphere used to have. Some just publish on Facebook, others start entire threads on Twitter, thereby negating the entire point of short character limits.
Remember when people used the term Blogosphere? What about Bloglines? The orange RSS icon? Or even Google Reader?
Most people I read no longer blog. Before comment systems ruined everything, we’d just link to each other and comment on our own blogs. I guess this is just a rehash of point 2.
To feel a bit better about the situation, I reproduced the last classic theme Rubenerd used before I tried making it look
modern boring. It looks like a vintage blog again, which is visually terrible but far more fun!
Because if it’s not fun, what’s the point?
