You check the archives. A long list of months. Next to the oldest, in parentheses, is a large number, (60) or so, sometimes100+. If you check those posts, they’re full of piss and vinegar; OHBOYI’MBLOGGINGNOW. As you scan up the list, the numbers diminish. The blog fades, you can see the energy & enthusiasm dwindle. The first month arrives with no posts at all. Apologies crop up. Perhaps there’s a second wind, and for a time the post numbers shoot back up. But it doesn’t last. By the time you find the page, the “Most Recent” is more than two years old.
That may yet happen here. We’ll see.
