Its a bit sad

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

    It’s sad to see blogs suddenly go silent. I’ve noticed that a lot of people seem to stop blogging after only a handful of posts. I wonder if they decided it’s too much work, or maybe they’re frustrated that they didn’t get a lot of response right away?

    I agree… it is sad to see people give up, but there is always a reason behind every blog that goes quiet, and as long as the blogger is not dead (I hate it when people die on us, don’t you?) I sigh and hope for the best for them! I usually keep following for a while, though… I had some surprises in the past!

    I think 6 months is long enough before unfollowing them. I never did that though. I should probably try that too.

  4. Try to look at it another way. They tried something and found it was not for them, at least not for now. We should all try new things from time to time. Sometimes we will enjoy it and continue with it. Sometimes we will stop. It isn’t sad. It is actually beautiful that they tried something out of their comfort zone.
