At the current pace, we could have a total of 6000 posts on this blog by early next year; currently, we have about about 5700 posts. I've written nearly all of them; I have collaborated with Benster and Fearless Maria on a few hundred, and Mrs. D and my brother Stinger (alive and well, by the way) have weighed in periodically, but for the most part, it's been my deal.
That's a lot of blogging. I'm wondering how much longer I'll want to do this, though. I never tried to reach a mass audience; there have been times where a post of mine might get several hundred page views, but it's usually been because I insulted (or was perceived to have insulted) a small, passionate group of people. Don't piss off the Eric Carmen Fan Club. Or if you want page views, maybe you should. Go all the way.
But if writing (and blogging) is a labor of love, does it last? I'm not certain. Lately Glenn Reynolds has been suggesting that blogging is ripe for a comeback. I'm not sure I agree, but it's possible. Most of my regular commenters operate blogs of their own, or have in the past. Do you sense, at this point, there's an opportunity for a resurgence?
