Randomness and Folgers
The thing I find interesting about blogs is the ebbs and flows they follow with their writers. You can tell a lot about where someone is at from the writing, lack of writing, and general status. Some get busy with other things in life (babies, business, etc.) and some just aren't sure what to do. The tones can change, point of views shift, or they can all stay the same...from day to day over the years. Others disappear, only to reappear in different forms years down the road.
This blog is really in a weak state of existence. I've focused my time on mountain bike topics elsewhere. Mountain Bike Radio has taken on a life of it's own and I'm trying to build it's social media presence to ensure that it reaches the full mountain biking community. With the increased amount of information flying around daily and the decreased amount of time we all spent on each piece of that information, it becomes exponentially important to stay part of the conversation.
While blogs continue to lose out to quicker hits like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, etc., they still remain relevant as a way to share information, experiences, and be part of the conversation. We cozy up to our computers on a rainy Saturday morning with our fancy organic, gluten free lattes to read stories and experiences on blogs the same way our parents and grandparents did with their newspapers and Folgers. Whether blogs become irrelevant like newspapers and Folgers, will be determined by our kids.
So, let's see if I can do my microscopic part to help keep blogs semi-relevant until then.
