Do y'all ever wonder if we'll still be here in 10 years? No, I'm not getting all philosophical and talking about the earth here. (What, are you kidding me? I'm no WAY that deep.) I'm talking about here, as in with our blogs.
I read somewhere that the average life of a blog is 3 years. To me, that sounded long...but hey, what do I know? I'm barely 6 months into mine but already I've "met" some really cool people and formed some good friendships, even if I don't know the people in real life (IRL). I think about a lot of the people whose blogs I read often. Will I still know you guys in 10 years? 5 years?
Will you guys one day be reading about my wedding, the birth of my kids, a new dog, a new house, a new job? Or will I fade out of the blog-o-sphere eventually, and the brief but intense blog relationships I've made ending? Will I meet any of you guys in real life, or will you remain forever, to me, anonymous bloggers?
I think of blogging somewhat like pen pals. We write back and forth, updating each other about the goings-on in our lives. The only difference is that with pen pals, you're usually far apart. I could be reading the anonymous blog of my next-door neighbor and not know it...you may have met me and not realized it. But since I'm anonymous, you'll never know.
What do you think?
