Yesterday, after around an hour in front of my PC, I gave up.
The number of unread blog posts in my reader
had reached four figures and was rising.
There was no way I'd be able to read them all and stay sane.
I did what any sensible person did and marked the lot as read.
It was such a relief.
I'm the first to admit that I've been terrible at commenting on the few blogs
I have read during the first quarter of 2016, but I'm claiming extenuating circumstances.
Comments on this blog are noticeably down, even though the blog traffic is reasonable.
Is is a quid pro quo? Because my reading and commenting have dropped off,
others aren't bothering to read and comment on what I write?
Do you think blog reading in general is in decline?
Are we pointing potential readers to other forms of social media,
because those platforms are quicker to use and launch as 'live'?
