Blogger Reflection - Where Have All The Bloggers Gone?

I've been writing Dicky Bird's Nest since December 6, 2010.  It's almost painful to go back and look at my first year of posts.   However, reading them, I had some insightful ideas and advice.  Therefore, I plan to revisit, revise and repost.    

A blog is as unique as it's writer.  Some use it as a tool for families to keep in touch, a venue for a political voice, a catalog of recipe keeping and a virtual diary of all your activities.  The "blogosphere" is full of anything you would want to look up or know how to do. 

I do write this blog for me - a piece of my heart and life that I choose to share with my followers and others who "happen upon" my page. 

Over the years, I have met some wonderful people in "blogland."  Many are still writing, others on hiatus and some just vanished.  It's the later that I've noticed lately.  Some of my favorites no longer show up in my daily reading lists.  I just wonder, where have all the bloggers gone?

I do understand, blog "burn out" is real.  The pressure to come up with creative, unique posts, competing with last month/year's page views, finding new hops or linky parties to join, not to mention the reading and leaving comments on other's blogs - it can become like a "job."  

I've been reading many posts on blogging lately.  What I found is that by chance I happen to do some of the same things these bloggers do.  When I started, I had no instruction on how to do this, I just do what I do the way I do it.  I enjoy sharing and writing and so I continue.  

If you are a blogger, what tips would you be willing to share with us.  What do you enjoy about your blog?  What blogs are your favorites?  Share with us.....

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
