Well, well. When it rains, it pours. The bloom is off the rose, all that's old is new again, and (insert cliche here). What am I talking about? The seeming trend, lately, for bloggers to either quit altogether or vow to redouble their efforts. Viva la trend:
- Scott-O-Rama went defunct last year.
- Longtime blog-pal Malcontent's blog has been down for a couple of months now, with no word or explanation from the boys.
- Brian of In Repair has recently decided to forego blogging for now.
- BoiFromTroy will no longer be blogging as of yesterday.
Why I bothered to include links, even I don't know. :)
The point is that what all of these had in common were their fairly unique viewpoints on life, each one defying, in one way or another, the mythic stereotypes of homosexuals. That individuality will be missed, at least for a time.
Of course, QJ, as one of his resolutions this year, has vowed to increase his readership. Ah, the lovable gay, cursing, quaker, never was he much for trends. I submit that the pageviews are there to be had--if he can take up the challenge. And stop swearing so damned much. ;)
Any other newly defunct blogs I should know about? And are there any other commonalities among these blogs that I'm missing?
