Leaving my drawing frustration behind, let’s be more positive. Today is the Razorblade’s fifteenth anniversary. Fifteen whole years of blogging seems quite remarkable to me, though I know some bloggers, such as Blue Witch, Gordon and Diamond Geezer, have been going strong for much longer. DG is particularly remarkable because he still writes every day.
I don’t know how much longer the old-fashioned personal, not for financial gain blog will carry on. I think there has been a slight resurgence this past year because we’ve all been stuck at home so much, but the blogging communities that there used to be have diminished hugely. Sometimes, a friend will restart a blog and find it’s just not the same, but I don’t know if they’re the same themselves in blogging terms, I don’t think they read and comment on other blogs as they used to, so it’s hardly surprising that no one knows they’re there. But it does take some commitment.
I don’t suppose that a blog party will be possible this year, but I hope that I might see some of you. Thanks for visiting, however that has happened.
