Pennsylvania's Most Interesting Blog

11 Mai 2006


No one updates his/her blog any more.

What is up with that? And yes I mean you. And unless your name is Mommymatic, or
NOSE, a.k.a. Supreme Providers of Exciting Regular Updates, I mean my other blog friends when I say 'you'.

It can't be that we don't have TIME because NO one has any extra of that. (Time, schmime, I don't feel like I've had 'time' for anything since about 1998, and I'm starting not to even care. But I do want to. Care, that is. Sort of).

Thus, I present to you today, My Most Interesting theory on this seeminly neglectful blog behavior: While we do not overtly aim to ignore our blog updates, our engagement in hypertextuality elsewhere (see Facebook: home of juvenile yet scintillating intercommunicationality) renders us overwhelmed at where to focus our attention.

Ergo, or, 'ca veux dire' as it were, we can put forth the Most Interesting research question: IS the novelty wearing off? Furthermore, have we as users made informed decisions as to how we envision our blogworldmania/ae? These issues and more can best be addressed via empirical data and rigorous online user behavior analyses*.

Alas, arise, Bloggers, and bring us into the next big post-modern and/or retro-futuristic THING.

Anxiously awaiting your sage comments I remain very truly your

*Am I good, or am I GOOD?

Hmmm, is there any correspondence with blog- writers not updating and blog- readers not commenting? Not hosting my own blog, I have a question: When you don't update your blog, and people visit your blog, is there any note to you about who/ how many people have viewed? I'm thinking of that line on e-vites, where the host sees the names of people who have "viewed but not replied." Does anyone really like the fact that e-vite shares that information? Oh! Maybe decreased blog authorship corresponds with sunny weather?

Actually, cancel that last idea that blog- authorship may correspond with sunny weather. We are having a fabulously sunny 75 degree day, here, and I am looking for a place to vent because I have just spent three hours losing files and having them replaced and generally playing a very annoying game of hide and seek + charades (as I search for things under different possible names), and prayerful pleadings with my computer.

Hmk! So now I think blogging more fills a need for when people need to switch gears and get some outside feedback. That is all!

Wonder how our hostess is doing in her various locales?

I am guilty as charged. It's not that I haven't had the time as much as I find myself wanting to do anything BUT sit in front of a comptuter if/when I DO have the time to do it. Meaning- the new job has me in front of a screen all day, I need to remember that the wold does not exist solely in the confines of a 1" monitor. If its any comfort, I often feel guilty for neglecting the blog, and have made recent efforts to do better.
