So took some time going through my blogroll (do they even call it that any more? It’s weird when i first started writing on line back in 1996 it was just a “link list”…then writing became blogging….and it became a blogroll….now its all Facebook….twitter…..anyway..)
The entire time I did so lines from Good Time Charlie kept echoing through my head
Everybody’s goin’ away….
Believe this time I’m gonna stay….
Pretty much sums me and a handful of other folks up pretty well I think. For me its really weird as I started this before there was even a word “blog” for writers on the internet. Now its me and another bare handful thats left.
Almost nobody still active. Then I figured…why not do some “link love” (or whatever its called now) for those folks still running? I’ve been “lurking” (read….stalking…nonactive participant…gender neutral, nonsexual deviant post lacking individual?) for eons. So here we go…what may be the first Blog Round up in probably 10 years.
Grim waxes eloquent about Jim Webb
Harvey has found something entertaining
Laughing Wolf has put out a BOLO
DocinTheBox is trying to make sense of the world…and does pretty well.
EricSWG is writing…once a year or so….less than even me.
John is reminding us of mass murder and arson
Slobokan has updated his name and reaches in to something deep regarding the smell of dirt.
Blackfive is largely book reviews nowadays.
And that’s it….over a hundred references and links and that’s all that’s left that I can find whom have done anything in the last 6 months. (Not that I am a shining example of regular blogging either)
Here’s to hoping maybe we few….we happy few…can maybe light a spark to get it going again.
