It seems that so many people start blogs, make one post saying they are starting a blog, and then never touch it again. It also seems that people stop blogging for months and months and just leave their blogs to die.
One other thing I noticed is that LiveJournal, et al type blogging services don’t easily let their users expose their RSS feeds (if they even have RSS Feeds?)
For someone who reads blogs through use of an aggregator, no RSS means no read.
Also, comment spam is just bad. Everywhere you look. At least now blogger has word verification, but then that turns people off from putting in comments.
The blogsphere seems to be kind of in shambles in some respects. Pretend everyone got 5 acres to build houses, and 30% of people just nailed two boards together and then never went back. Granted, there are some people who give it a good effort and build their house, but with no roof, and they never finish. In any event, all houses get vandalized (comment spam). That is how I see the blogsphere right now.
