I’ve been searching for new (and old) blogs that might interest me, and as I was roaming the blogosphere, I saw many blogs that have not been updated in a year, sometimes two years. Seeing the abandoned blogs was worse than seeing the ones that have been deleted altogether. It’s almost like driving past a whole neighborhood of empty houses, up for foreclosure. I know that there is a flip side to it: they are probably just blogs owned by people who have too much going on in their lives to sit down and catch a breath to blog about it all…but, I still can’t help feeling melancholy when I see the last posting date in the year 2007. Especially when the past posts were really vibrant and lively…it makes me feel like the abandoned a really beautiful house because of something ominous.
