Gay Blogosphere Is Dying Down

 

Dear Zach,

It seems to me the trend of blogging is starting to die down. Well, it had been died down ever since I started blogging in few years back. I can see a lot of people blogging about Travels/Food/Fashion in a way so that they would be able to shoot to fame. While blogs with personal thoughts and journey had never been so much popularized. Not to mention anonymous gay blogs who put up their thought about breakup and heartbreak in three or five separated posts, in which it makes people feeling much sadder reading it when them themselves already have so much in mind to stress about.

There are a few fellow bloggers who had once wrote me an email saying I was their inspiration to them to start a blog. I was stoked the fact that my writing could inspire people to write down about their struggles with lives in a public page where everyone can view. Of course, with no doubt I constantly check on them for updates, only to have four or five posts at most for the week itself, then they had gone AWOL for weeks, months, and years. No new posts. No nothing. I was kind of disappointed by the reality. Maybe my inspiration had reached its toll in an effort of inspiring them, I couldn’t blame them for not being able to blog consistently in life. So much for the inspiration.

Since I quit playing Facebook, I tend to focus more on blogging than anything else. I am always on constant checker of new post from bloggers I followed, and leaving comments if necessary. Even for the regulars blogger they seem to have gone missing for months already. The posts by them getting lesser by months until none. Just sad to know there is not much of gay blogs floating around these days.

Don’t worry. I won’t be gone AWOL like the others.

    2. Lol... Everybody's life is interesting!! It depends on how you see it. Perhaps because being an "artist" (character), I always try to see things in different perspective.

  2. I have to agree to that! But I guess people move on, and things are different with stuffs like dayre, instagram and tweeter popping up. Commitment is probably not there anymore.

    Blog on. It is worth having your thoughts up in the cloud. Just don't let stalkers have access to too much information!

    1. dayre is redundant anyway. The only apps I am still keeping is instagram.
      I guess blogging is for oldies nowadays.
