Abandoned Blogs Protest New Blogs

According to recent study by the Bloggers for a Better Tomorrow Institute (BBTI), the creation of new Blogs was up 55% the fourth quarter of 2006. The same study states that the number of abandoned Blogs has increased by 47.5% for the same period.

The statistics have been alarming to Blogs throughout the Blogosphere. This year an estimated 75% of all Blogs world wide will be abandoned within one month of their inception do to lack of interest, laziness, or pure sadistic evil.

"I've been waiting for new content for 5 years, said the Bean Rice Blog. "What ever happened to that idealistic fellow with bold ideas and a suave smile?"

"Frank has not been around he for a long time... like 2000 when he created me. He made a post called test and that was it. I feel so neglected," stated Frank's Blog.

"I was supposed to give an uncensored view of Detroit politics. All I am is just an empty space without any content whatsoever," cried the Detroit Blog. "Won't someone please find it in their heart to adopt me?"

Every week, approximately one million new Blogs are created world wide while 750,000 old Blogs are abandoned. Most abandoned Blogs receive no advance warning whatsoever and are left to die in cyberspace.

"One day they are receiving fresh content, and the next day they receive nothing," said Paul Holdstein of BBTI. "Some of these Blogs are pathetic to begin with like the Generation X Blog. It was supposed to give some meaningful random thoughts from a Generation Xer. Three posts? That's it! Sadly Noah Grey will never be remembered as a great thinker of his generation although his photography is pretty darn good."

It's amazing how many blogs are out there. I think people start them with good intentions, but do not have the will or patience to follow through. I wonder if that is a reflection on our society. Heh.

Tom and I started Life is Crap simply as a way to entertain ourselves, formulate our opinions, and improve our writing.

I hope some day that I will be good enough to write a book. I think Tom is more so interested in writing a movie or sitcom. In order to do any of those things... you need practice. Writing this blog is one way to work on our writing and try different writing styles. It is also a good way to offend Republicans.

Some days I admit that I don't feel like writing. It can be hard to come up with something new or interesting.

The weirdest ones are the ones (like that Gen X blog) that give no hint about their impending abandonment. Most of the time bloggers will post about how they're sick of blogging, etc. and pretty much say that they're packing it in. But when they just end abruptly I wonder if that blogger was the victim of some heinous crime. Or if they just have ADD.
