What happened to all the great bloggers I knew?

Three years ago there was some riveting writing going on in the blogosphere Hugh Macleod held my rapt attention for the length of even his longest posts and the Tin Basher made me giggle with his brash and bold writings on business.

So I suppose my point is what gives? 2 posts about The Global Microbrand in a year? And the Tin Basher hasn't said anything... well most anything remotely interesting in weeks. All Hugh talks about is wine, and Micheal well other than I am not entirely partial to the lyrical stylings of his co-workers, Tech Crunch still seems to be on the ball.

What gives?

I figure Hugh has been oversampling his wares, but what did life get in the way guys? Did the blogosphere loose it's innocence with the numerous trust issues that have come to light?

I am not sure what happened, but the good blogs I was reading are drying up (execpt you Engadget don't let the potty mouthed serial posters at Gizmodo get you down.)


  1. It's a very fair comment and something I was discussing in an email q&a just today. I fear The Tinbasher has lost its mojo, too.

    You see, I now work elsewhere - part of my job description being a corporate blogger of sorts - and write my more business focused pieces there.

    This may just be the kick up the backside I need in one way or another.

    Thanks for letting me know.

  2. I find things go in phases with me. In 2005 I was really into all things Global Microbrand. This year I'm more into cartoons and Microsoft. Maybe I'll swing back one day. Qui sera.

    This is the thing about personal blogs, as opposed to "theme" blogs like Engadget. They change as the interests of the writer change.
