I was doing a little late summer blog cleaning today and decided to go through my “blog surfer” page to weed out what I didn’t want to follow anymore. I’ve just been adding different blogs to this list to follow and have never actually cleaned it out. I guess it’s about 4 years of blog collecting so to speak. Needless to say there was a rather hefty listing of blogs.
In going through this list I have learned quite a bit actually. It seems that the majority of blog owners aren’t very active with their blogs. I ended up deleting roughly 80% of my list. Many of the blogs no longer existed. I dunno when they were deleted but the “this page has been deleted by the owner” page was pretty clear. Some of them became private and so I was unable to read those blogs anymore. Finally the rest of them had been inactive for over 6 months so I decided they probably weren’t coming back. Might as well wipe them from my blog surfer list. I actually found one that was last updated in 2007. Wow I need to clean more often.
Perhaps the “blog surfer” title doesn’t really apply. It should be more to the lines of cemetery surfer because it seemed like I was surfin through a graveyard of dead blogs.
To all you out there who still blog regularly… I commend you. It’s apparently a tough job.
