Lots of Blogs and Lots of Dead Blogs

I continually read about the number of blogs that are out here in the Internet. The numbers really are astonishing. I have read article of the millions of blogs in the hundreds of millions on the Internet. In reality, you can find a blog on about any subject that you want.

One thing that is not reported is the number of blogs that are sitting dormant. The ones that where started with hopes and dreams of taking off, but are now dead. I am sure those numbers are up into the millions.

Lots of people start blogs with good intentions of putting up great content and making some side income in the process. There is nothing worse to me that to be doing a Google search for something and coming across a great post that was written on the subject, and then clicking to go to the home page of the blog only to notice the blog has not been updated in over a year.

I would have subscribed. I would have loved to read more articles by the individual.

Instead though when the time required for the blog became too much the blog became dead.

Blogging is not easy by no means. It requires time and dedication and has to be something you love to do. For me it is!

Has you ever come across a dead blog that you wish was still updated? What do you do to stay motivated to blog?

    I’ve come across a few dead blogs. I assume they just never read TentBlogger.
    The problem I have is that there are so many great blogs out there creating quality content and I don’t have time to read them all.

    My Google Reader is overloaded.

    I have to agree with you. A blog takes time and dedication. I don’t work on mine everyday but I sometimes mark out time within the week and knock out three or four in a day. I like working on some a little at the time and post them when they are completed. I do have to agree with you and KC that my Google Reader is also overloaded. I enjoy your blog. Thanks for writing such good stuff.

      Thanks for the compliment.
      One of my blogging goals for the year is to blog 6 to 7 times a week. It is going to be tough, but I am going to try to stick with it.
      My Google Reader is loaded, but I like it like that.

      Thanks for stopping by Jimmy!

    I’ve subscribed to so many blogs that I found out about in the beginning stages…and am so bummed when they don’t post new stuff. I’m a hard sell as a subscriber…I wish I could show them they have good stuff to say so they’d keep going.
