Lose some, win some — 8 Comments

  1. I just checked it and it appears my last post was 42 days ago. Damn, I'm slacking. The again, I've been a bit preoccupied of late. I could write a post about that but I won't.

    • Likewise, Carol.

      He's still on my Twitter list, still in my bookmarked blogs and still in my mind.

      Damn, I even pop back to his site sometimes, in the vain hope that it was all a horrible mistake, and he's posted something new…

      • Glad to know that there are at least two other people who feel like me.

        Dammit, I still haven't deleted my sister's email address and she died four years ago!

  2. I think blogging was a great popular and independent movement a decade ago, then the hacks got in on the act, pretending the commercial stuff they wrote for their paymasters was blogging – some professional journalists now describe themselves as "bloggers", all it means is that the stuff they one wrote for newsprint now appears on a website. Google searches that might once have found free thought now produce pages of links to newspapers and media outlets.

    • I couldn't agree more.  The whole scene seems to have lost its edge here in Ireland, with the news outlets pushing in from one side and the "fluffy" bloggers on the other [those who write about fashion, cookery and hairdos – the Pink Brigade].  There are very few of the old school left here, sadly.
