The Fall of Blogs

I just deleted several blogs in my links column. WKRN has chosen to delete many of the blogs from their anchors and reporters. As you may remember, WKRN folks inspired me to blog back in 2004.

I also deleted "Stand Firm" which was a blog from one of my friends that is a pastor in Malvern, AR. He decided to stop blogging because his time is being consumed in other places...

This made me wonder, are blogs fading away? As I have written before, I believe they have become WAY too commercialized. Maybe blogging became too popular, too fast???

There have been times when I have wanted to end my blog and then I change my mind. I guess I feel like ending it, before I get bored with it. Kind of like Seinfeld!

Anywho, if you have some local blogs that would be good to add to my list of links... feel free to post them in the comments section. Let's try to keep them PG 13...

Take care,
Ryan

so much going on today.....maybe only ads will be the projection of nets future.
Comcast has blocked my links, because of security reasons (even own daughter)....Amazing, since my pages are to boost laughter and hope and pondering in the ill and housebound....So Be It!
Their Game/Their Rules, however get ready for the internets financial *Woe is me blues* and net usage drops..as I know many baby boomers who will be offended by this current process of unconsciencable *steal of Heart*insanity.

Please don't stop blogging-I so enjoy reading your stories. I would like to see the link for the earthquake reports put back on your page-Used to check it at least once every couple of weeks.

Thanks!

Don't worry, I'm not quitting! As far as the Dwyer Wire, it got squashed by WKRN management. Here's the link though:

It would be awful if you quit blogging, you add so much to Kait8 news and weather.

Stand Firm is a blogger that will be missed as well as the Orne's from Nashville. By the way, why is your sister's blog not on here anymore? Always enjoyed reading her blogs.
