Blogging is over?

Things have changed a lot since this blog started.  You have to scroll forever just to get past the archives.  It's had a long run for a blog. But face it, things are different heading, it seems, into 2010.  The Web's moved on, people are interested in different stuff, life is not the same.

I cast my glance at Facebook.  It's much better than blogging in most ways.  But it's more public than this niche here, and I'd never want to get rid of this, but it seems most people have moved on, away, to different sectors of life, as I have myself.  What to do?  Not everyone is on Facebook.  Is it re-Balkanization?

Where did the conversation go?  What's happening, as Dr Thompson wrote -- what's going on?

The man then ran out a back door.
