Where Have all the ACON Bloggers Gone?
I suppose some blog and then get it all out of their system. I feel like I have so many layers to work through this will take longer then most on that particular subject.
One of my favorite bloggers died but I read many others that were taken down after a short period of time or where the blogger stopped blogging. One had "dance" in the title and another "fan" in it, and there's been a whole slew of others that have vaporized. I know with blogs that are mainly ACON blogs, I am sure some may even rush to take down their blogs worrying their families or narcissists may find them.
I have noticed there seems to be a short time span in posting about narcissism.
Since this blog is not purely an ACON blog, and covers obesity, poverty and other matters of life, I know the day could come where I may write more about other topics then that one. I had hoped one day I could write about exciting projects and trips and show more photos, but the drudge of life marches on. Lately I feel like I just want something exciting to happen. Hey the winning Lotto ticket is overdue! :)
But I miss some of those bloggers and video makers who seemingly have dropped off the map for good. I won't mention them by any names here.
Mother Jones is claiming that blogging is dying with Facebook taking control. Barf.
Some post prolifically even for 2 and 3 years and then are finished. Maybe they hit the end point of their recovery and more important matters of life come up and then have nothing more to say. I know the normal people out there have to make a living and have children to take care of. They have said everything there is to say about their miserable narcs. I can't judge them for that, it's the natural progress of life us Aspies have a harder time grasping but I do miss them and their writing.
I know I still have more to say but I'm a year and half into it all I suppose so maybe I haven't hit the end run on the ACON stuff like others. Sometimes I hope I got into this blogging thing for the right reasons. I had some sneer at me that blogs are narcissistic ventures in themselves written for attention. This one had some true causes in it, I am dedicated to fat people having a voice and some needed changes being made in that world. I suppose those matters will not end.
I always wanted to have some voice in the world, hope that doesn't sound narcissistic, but when you see more and more bloggers drop off, it can get lonely. You wonder if you will be silenced here too as the world marches on and leaves you behind. I have weird feelings of standing alone with a tumbleweed blowing by. The stats haven't dropped or anything like that, this blog is read, but it is just some odd things I think about.
I want to print this blog in it's entirety, anyone have any ideas on how to do that where it won't break the bank?
