Why I have stopped blogging

In an unsolicited response to (e:paul,52605) . I suppose I have stopped blogging for more than one reason. Part of it is I just haven't had a whole lot I have wanted to share with the world lately. I know this may sound kind of strange but I have had people say things about my blog that aren't really part of estrip and it made me uncomfortable. In turn I stopped blogging because I wasn't sure how much I wanted to share about my life. So many things have happened and changed in my life I would love to be able to write about them here however I am reasonably public with this account and am not certain I am comfortable saying them. I have often thought about starting over here with an anonymous account. But for whatever reason I just haven't. Everytime I start to write a blog I end up erasing it and just continue to lurk. I have actually started to lurk on my own facebook account partly for the same reason.

For me the increased popularity of facebook has had absolutely nothing to do with why I stopped blogging. I was on facebook at least a year before even knew estrip existed. Facebook has gotten to the point of annoying the shit out me. I really can't stand most things that people say and do on facebook. It isn't anywhere near as creative as estrip is. In fact I really only keep it to stay informed.

It also makes me sad to see that the blogging traffic on estrip has dwindled. I obviously have to take some responsibility for not posting much of anything in the past year. When I first moved here and didn't know a single person estrip was one of the best things about Buffalo. I met people instantly. I suppose I don't spend a whole lot of time with estrip people anymore but occasionally I still see them and hang out with them, and it alwasy turns out to be a good time. I would like to say I will blog more from now on, but I'm not certain I will follow through as usual. But I guess one post is a start.
