I get most of my information on new blogs from either Unpluggedshop.com or from Norsewoodsmith.com.
I also have a blogroll on my own blog, and I usually look at the blog rolls of the other woodworking blogs I visit.
But it seems to me that there are a bit fewer entries per day on e.g. unpluggedshop and norsewoodwmith compared to say two years ago.
I forgot to mention Woodspotting.com which is also a hand tool woodworking blog aggregator. Sorry Siavosh for forgetting your page, but it had just slipped my mind.
The other day I tried to look at the Popular woodworking blog network. A few clicks gave me blogs that hadn't been updated for a long long time. A couple with the last update in the spring of 2015, one from 2014 and one last updated in 2012.
I know that Popular Woodworking don't accept brand new blogs on their page, to avoid the "here today gone tomorrow blogs".
I know that life itself is infinitely more important than maintaining a blog, but those were all blogs that had a proven record. So I am not talking about blogs that were started, had maybe a couple of months of entries and then shut down. But instead of blogs that had been going on for at least a couple of years with a regular flow of entries.
Off course some bloggers stop due to change in interests, or changes in life such as moving or new jobs etc. But maybe it is not the only thing that is happening?
Is Facebook taking over? Google Plus? Instagram? or some other places like woodworking fora's?
And why? Is it easier to make an entry? More response from other people? Easier to comment on?
Maybe I shouldn't care about it, but I am a bit curious.
My own answers to why I am here is: Because I haven't got a Facebook or an Instagram account. And I like blogging because of the response from other people. I like that I can have as much text or as little text as I choose, and the same goes for the amount of pictures.
So please let me hear your comments on this one.
