Apparently I am and old man with nothing to do but ask random questions that everyone knows the answer to. But if you look at the google trends on people searching for “blogging”, the whole enterprise seems to be on a decline.
Also dire is “blog,” which seems to have peaked around 2008. I’m guessing this has something to do with the rise of Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat, which are all in essence miniature blogs with far less permanence. (Is what I keep telling to myself.) Honestly, as someone whose favorite pastime includes “talking to myself,” I would probably be blogging to infinity plus one of the notion grabbed me. But, well, you know, life and its pesky contrivances get in the way.
That and serial killer podcasts.
