Sadly it is my duty to announce the death of another blog or at least a major cut back of postings from our Canadian born Ukrainian blogger the Blog Fodder. Thinking back I can't remember how I even came upon his blog in the first place. But the sad part is seeing a blog roll list that's shrinking with an array of dead links. Much like losing friends while reading the morning obits. I realize that sometimes life gets in the way and personal issues can take a front seat in the blogosphere, but to drop to drop off the face of the earth? I couldn't do that. So if you open up this blog and find nothing new for days on end I'm either recovering in the hospital or have indeed slipped off the mortal coil. As I said to him and I'll say it here they'll have to pry the keyboard from my cold dead hands. You'll find no exit notes here. Just hope I can make it to the 'publish post" button before the heart gives it's last pump.
We've lost a lot of great bloggers in the last few years and even though you might not consider yourself one of the bigger fish in this ocean, collectively we make up a whole. You might have in your own simple way given others inspiration or advice that their own family could never give. Or as Steve Smith aka Red Green would put it "I'm pullin for you, we're all in this together."
There's always trolls spammers and snipers out here but for the most part the friends you meet are fairly decent and more than willing to lend a hand with advice and moral support. It's just sad to have a blog roll that looks more like a memorial than an active address book. So I guess it's true "you can't go home again". Home is never the same especially without the people who made it a home.
So like it not you're stuck with me. I'm not going anywhere any time soon. Unless of course google starts screwing with the format again in which case I have a back up plan and new digs all ready to move into.
