Lately I have been questioning the reasons I go on with this blog. It seems like the 'old gang' of friendly bloggers just doesn't hang together any more.
I have a beautiful new blog all set up and ready to go for GODSPEED should the interest in my still having a blog be there. Of course I would post about the book there, not about my life, as I primarily have here.
I find myself more on Twitter and even flirting with the idea of Pinterist ONLY because it seems where everybody is heading and I don't want to get left behind (again). Though I'd only pin my own stuff and even then, the idea just worries me.
It really feels more and more like blogs are going the way of the Dodo. There are just so many writers, writing about writing. Writing about their own books, though there are a few kind souls writing about other people's books (something I did a LOT when I had more strength a couple years back and still plan to do when I can.)
Why blog? Do you even care, honestly, about reading other people's blogs anymore or do they seem a burden, another thing on your 'to do' list?
I keep hearing people say they 'haven't recovered from April' and that makes me sad. It seems like a lot of the blogging community is suffering from burn-out and I don't see them turning around as quick as usual this time.
I miss the people who used to visit here, I try to still visit as many blogs as I can by the people who have come to be real friends to me. But I'm curious, if you're reading this what do you think?
Is it time to prepare to say goodbye to the blog- this blog in particular, and move on to the next, new thing?
Walt Disney said "Keep moving forward.," and lately I just feel like blogging is going in reverse.
I'm curious to know what you think- and how you feel, about your own blog, this one, and just blogs in general. Do you prefer Twitter (as I find I do now) FB or another social media outlet?
PS Don't forget to look in the post below this one, at the end, to read about my Reader Appreciation Contest in which I am giving away three copies of GODSPEED in print and also a unique piece of artwork. The only catch to enter? You have to have read, and enjoyed, the book. Contest closes June 1 so hurry!
