I just removed some links to blogs that no longer appear active from the list at the side.
It makes me sad when people I visited several times a week for years, be it electronically, disappear. What are they doing? What are they writing? These are the things I wonder about.
I miss Tribe even a year and a half after his disappearance from here. The occasional email does not sustain me because I want to know what he's reading, what movies he's watching on a more regular basis.
I try to respond to people's comments here and comments on their blogs so there's something in for both of us. A reason to keep this relationship up.
Blogging isn't for everyone, I'm sure. No one else in my family blogs. But some people (like Tribe) are very good at it. They manage to put their personality into every entry, making their blog something special.
Do you contemplate giving up on your blog if you have one? Cause I need a lot of warning if I have to let you go. And you people that don't have one, you might just have to step up and start one if we keep losing people here.
