I’ve decided to reboot, once again, my attempt to keep a blog. The thought of my failures required a cursory Google search to find out how many people have started a blog only to abandon it. Unfortunately, the only references I could find were to a 2009 article in the New York Times that stated the following:
“According to a 2008 survey by Technorati, which runs a search engine for blogs, only 7.4 million out of the 133 million blogs the company tracks had been updated in the past 120 days. That translates to 95 percent of blogs being essentially abandoned, left to lie fallow on the Web, where they become public remnants of a dream — or at least an ambition — unfulfilled.”
I am not sure deserting my blog would qualify as a dream or ambition unfulfilled. I mean, I’ve been busy doing other things. However, I do want a central store house for my digital musings, hence a blog reboot.
For this attempt, I am keeping it simple – no goals, just a weekly habit of writing, posting something, or sharing some bit of insight.
