Who knew that blogging would still have some klout in 2016? Justin Hall, who began personal blogging in 1994 while a student at Swarthmore College, is generally recognized as one of the earliest bloggers. 1994 to 2016! And blogs are still on the infobahn. So if you've been following this blog, you know the greatest blogger on the planet is
Xiaxue! According to wikipedia, as of 16 February 2011, there were over 156 million public blogs in existence. In 20 February 2014, there were around 172 million Tumblr and 75.8 million WordPress blogs online worldwide. Blogger (blog*spot) is regarded as the most popular blogging service used today. While I (and many other diarists) may not blog as much as we used to (thanks in part to twitter and other social media apps/services), the medium is still strong.
Thanks to all of you readers who have stuck around this long. I assure you that there are more wonderful things coming on this blog. You may well be surprised!
I also maintain a secondary wordpress blog and I have a presence on many social media platforms. I'm satisfied with the way this blog looks for now. There are some things, widgets or links, that may have become broken as the years have gone by. Like old road signs that haven't been taken down, for me they are milemarkers and remembrances. I may remove some, I may not. I do have one change, or addition to announce: I have added Disqus to the comments mix. As if I didn't have enough ways you could comment already. And maybe comments have, as some say, fallen out of favor. But your comments, views, criticisms are always welcome here!
