Not as many people seem to be blogging any more or else it is just me. I know I haven't blogged in several years now, due to some unfortunate life changes. I love it though when bloggers have the option to follow by email, because the blog subscription readers like to change their minds too often and it is so simple just to click and go to a blog from my email. I still prefer blogs over Facebook even though I am there so much. We definitely still need our fabulous bloggers! Cathy ♥
Interesting comments, both of you, and of course, I do agree that Facebook has usurped blog usage to where blogs are nearly extinct. I am a great offender too in that I stopped with my list of blogging friends here on my blog, which is why I cannot find them anymore. But when I do find one, I do see non use for years. Oh well. Facebook it is, but, on Facebook one is allowed 5,000 friends and no more. A blog is open to the world, unless one chooses not to allow all people to view. Most of us do not go out of our way to cultivate 5,000 friends, but the list does grow exponentially as people discover new people and therefore ask to be friends. Blogs are more artistic to me, than Facebook. I will keep mine up, I hope....
I had a friend ask me why I never made comments on her blog. And yet she never once commented on mine in its entire history. We get out of it what we put into it, I think. But times are changing, and people are One Stop Shoppers these days, it seems. They get all their social shopping done on FB now, I guess. But I still read the blogs (once a week?) and prefer that format, because it feels more like a visit.
I'm still around at By Way of Salem. I blogged intermittently at times but I'm back in full swing these days, still hanging around since 2009! The list on my blog of blogs I frequented back then, well they've mostly given up it seems except for a few. It's a shame. I look and see last past 3 years ago! I'm looking to expand and follow more blogs and hopefully more will follow mine. So here I am, and I'm following you today so I don't miss a thing :)
