If No One Comments On A Blog, Does It Exist?
According to a 2008 survey by Technorati, which runs a search engine for blogs, only 7.4 million out of the 133 million blogs the company tracks had been updated in the past 120 days. That means 95 percent of blogs are being abandoned, left to lie fallow on the Web, where they become public remnants of a dream unfulfilled.
Not all blogs die from lack of reader interest. Some bloggers find themselves too busy with homework and after school activities or if older, parenting and maintaining a job. Other people use more immediate formats, like Twitter and Facebook. Maybe a few would like to even not care, and keep what’s left of their privacy nowadays.

Blogging does take a lot of time and some people make a profession out of it, making it their life. It is up to the blogger to sit down and think of something to write about to generate responses, comments and discussion. Most people don’t like hard work.
