As I’m going over the old RSS feed (or a blogroll, as it’s more commonly called), I’m remembering the times where all these 1,300+ blogs were alive. 90% died since then. Many of them were bullied out of existence. Many more were eaten by Facebook (which is pretty much the same thing. There is no controversy inside an echo chamber.)


One thought on “Nostalgia”

  1. I’ve also witnessed a number of classic blog sites just “vanish into thin air”, or just suddenly atrophy indefinitely for whatever inexplicable reasons, without any (or full) explanations.
    And I would always hope no elements of social politics were responsible for any decisions on the part of the blog owner to delete or discontinue.
