I wasn’t planning a post today. Let me take this opportunity to apologize for my longer absences between posts. I’m trying some new routines out and time has been a little scarce.
However, I came across this piece in The New Yorker about how blogging is becoming obsolete. First of all, don’t worry. It’s not that you and I are obsolete. I think most of the people I follow and who follow me and comment, have hobby blogs. It’s more an issue with those who blog for a living. If you are thinking of blogging as a future revenue stream you might want to read this first and do your homework. If you are already blogging for a living, I hope this trend is mistaken. It’s just one article, after all, and an opinion from a knowledgeable writer is not necessarily omniscient.
There was something absolutely, impeccably omniscient in this article, however, and it was a link to this piece, posted on a blog called “The Awl” by Heather Havrilesky in April 2011, about what a white house ruled by Donald Trump might look like. It is spot on. Eerily so.
I don’t know about you, but I intend to keep blogging as long as the internet will let me; my guess is I’ve got a couple good years left.
