At the start of the month, I sit down for a few hours and go through the blogs I follow and unfollow those that haven’t blogged for 6 months.
I do this for a few reasons, one the wordpress reader stops working after a certain number, so I may miss posts, if I am looking at that, although since I get everyone via email this is not the main reason.
In my links, I usually do 10 blog links at the same time, for those people clicking on a link and finding that someone hasn’t blogged for a year can be annoying, so I try and keep all my links fresh.
However this means that now I have a few links with only one or two links on it.
I do find it sad when people stop blogging, however I know they do it for a few reasons, they stop having time, they get to a point when they don’t need the blog anymore, they lose the motivation for it.
I get that people stop blogging, it is a big crowd that blogs and only a few bloggers make money out of it. So, if your main mission is to start a blog to make money, I would probably leave that thought behind. It takes a lot of time, energy and persistants to get there and most people with a full time job or are full time students don’t have time.
That is my advice of the day
