Over the past few months, several of the bloggers I read (some for years) have either become seriously inactive (yes, I know, I sorta qualify under those metrics, but I figure my tweets make up for my lack of posting) or all out pulled their blogs (either through password protection or complete deletion). Obviously, I don't "know" these people, but it feels a little like my heart being ripped out of my chest and being smooshed down hard.
Has something happend in the blog-o-sphere in the past couple of months that I'm just not aware of? Has there been some up-tick in psycho-blog-o-stalking? Has the era of the blog ended as rapidly as it appeared? Have the sea-people finally come and taken away these bloggers from this crappy goddamn planet full of hippies?
It's weird how losing this strange, anonymous link to someone can still bring on an alienating sadness. So, to those bloggers who have shut their sites down and might be visiting me, however occasionally (yes, you!) - know that I miss you :(
