Wired says they are. They are because what is written in personal blogs like mine never show up on google searches, so, without a large audience, it is better to just keep in touch with friends via social networking sites and twitter, etc. This blog hasn't captured my attention in the last six months, but that has more to do with the fact that I have a more active social life than I did when I was married, and I bounce my ideas off and tell my stories to real, live friends.
Not that real friends aren't reading my blog. My six to ten readers are all friends of mine (Hi everyone!) and several of them have encouraged me to continue writing it. So I will, and I hope that it inspires me. But despite the fact that what I write here will "never" come up in a search engine, I have received emails from a few people who found me that way, as they researched obscure subjects like their own family ancestry, or Armenians in Fresno.
Today I signed up for a blog directory site that locates blogs by region. I found it on the CruzIO website, which is the best place to find local IT resources--at well as other local information. I'll link to the blog directory soon, once I figure out (again) how to add stuff to the nav bar of blog. It's not like WordPress--it involves messing with real code. I've been keeping with this same technology because I hate computers and tweaking code and configuration files, which is why the appearance of this blog hasn't changed in its six years. How long is that in computer years? 30?
