Hard to believe I know. One of the high points is seeing how WordPress celebrate each post with words like “Wild”, “awesome” and the like. Unfortunately I forgot to note what it said for my hundredth post but it was probably something like, “Stop writing so much” or “Hard boiled eggs are harder to digest”. I’ll never find out now unless someone else tells me.
Blogging has been a bit like sitting in a railway station. It’s always full of people, and gradually seems to get more crowded but the actual people in it keep changing. People Blog for a reason and when that reason vanishes so do they. My number of subscribers has gradually gone up, but a number of them no longer have Blogs so that’s a bit odd. Being a man who is controlled by routine among other things I regularly visit the Blogs of my subscribers, and those on my Blogroll . I almost always leave a comment. In fact if I visit a Blog, it is very rare for me not to leave a comment, unless it turns out that the Blog in question is outside my area of interest: in the main my tastes are pretty eclectic.
For my part I have found that the number of visitors is larger than the comments I get. Maybe it’s the “Read two lines and I’m off” crowd: who can say. I have developed an affection for some on my Blogroll but I have learnt that people come and go regardless of the opinion you have of them. Some of these have also come and gone without comment or explanation underlining the curiously ephemeral nature of the blogosphere.
I have enjoyed myself in this fast changing world, and hope to be around and see a few more changes before I vanish without explanation through some event possibly beyond my control. At the moment I can think of no other reason for vanishing. My thanks to all who visit me and have helped make blogging so rewarding for me. Your comments and support are appreciated more than you know.
