Blogs Come and Go

Four blogs on the blog roll over there to my right have disappeared, or will be disappearing soon. A few former powerhouse blogs that are still around aren't updated nearly as much anymore.

It's like a campaign. If you run your game long enough, the original players will eventually drop out one by one, but there will be new people cycling in (not to mentioned character turnover).

It's like a music scene. Old bands break up, new bands form in a constant and continuous cycle.

I've added over half a dozen new blogs to my blog roll in the past couple days. Half are ones that have been around a bit that I just haven't bothered adding until now, and the others are brand new (or at least I just found out about them).

This is all normal, this is all good.


  1. It's the Circle of Life...out with the old - in with the new, new blood, changing of the guard, everything old is new again, yadda yadda yadda...

    "Whatever will be, will be..."-D.Day

    In the immortal words of Sergeant Phil Esterhaus:

    "Hey, let's be careful out there."


  2. Very prescient! We are all vulnerable to static analysis at times.

    I hate it however when my favorite fun satirical blogs e.g., Maddox, SWPL sell out with book deals and we never get the prolific updates that once made the cubicle days passable!

  3. Sounds like you're comparing us to Spinal Tap drummers. Excuse me while I spontaneously combust.

  4. It beats having a bizarre gardening accident or choking to death on the vomit of person(s) unknown.

    Now there's a name for a new blog...

    "Save vs Bizarre Gardening Accident"
