s'long and thanks for all the hits

Anyone who spends much time poking around in the blogosphere knows that blogs come and go. Blogging always turns out to be a lot more work than you think it is.

There are several blogs on my Vermont Blogs list that haven't been updated in a while, and I'd like to point them out. I may boot 'em from the list, but I haven't decided if that's the thing to do yet. Many of them still have content available online, as if the owners have only stepped away for a moment but will soon be back. Do we keep hoping for a return? Or do we, like Kate Winslet in Titanic, bravely let them go to save ourselves? Er, uh...

AWOL blogs include:
Art + Function last post May 25
Biznerflicks last post April 11
Coming Clean last post June 28
Fat Bald Married Guy — he emailed me and posted on his blog saying he was on hiatus due to personal stuff
My Winooski Garden — this blogger figured out the digital camera, but not the laptop. so she hasn't posted in a while
Rhymes With Mango last post June 5
Ron's Worship Thoughts last post June 20
VT Politics these anonymous bloggers suspended posts after a mysterious "threat made against one of our family members"
Vermont Fresh Network last post April 14
Vermont's Other President last post June 17 — this blogger is still trying to refine her angle
Vermont, Our Life Here last post May 31
robrohr.org last post June 7

And I'd like to bid adieu to The Bulldozer Monologues, whose author, Rachel Severence, moved to San Francisco. Not sure how to categorize her blog, since it still has lots of useful info about VT, but is no longer of VT. Working on it.

"Blogging always turns out to be a lot more work than you think it is." Just so, as is most writing. Even people who write (or have written) for a living fall into the trap of thinking ... oh, I could knock that column out in an hour ... and four hours later they're still at it. Same with blog posts. What seems like it ought to take five minutes usually takes 20.
