Is it a coincidence that the anonymous bloggers such as pittgirl and the burgher have been forced into retirement? Is there that much stress being an anonymous blogger?
The bloggers out there that are known such as Bram, and Matt H have survived... Is it because they are "OUT" ? I have never done an inventory of the blogs in the burghosphere and categorized those which the authors are known and which are anonymous? Then we have the media types such as Delano, McYapper, ect.
Speaking of the MSM type, I would really enjoy life if a couple of people started blogs. Like Dicky Scaiffe. He enjoys plastering his political views all over the Trib Review, I would like to have the opportunity to post my opinions and debate him on his views. On the other side of the news media, I would like to interact with Rich Lord. No offense Mr. Lord, I am not comparing you to Dicky!
It's funny. Here in the burgh we are such a small town. There is no doubt in my mind that I have been in the same room as the Burgher and probably walked down the street and seen alot of the anons who post in the burghosphere.
I have asked myself if I am crazy for starting a blog. It's alot of work to keep one up. I see the bloggers out there who do a good job and those that don't. I remember clicking on to the burgh report, only to be disappointed that there were no new posts. NOW it is gone. UGH. But then the Burgh Report wasn't just a blog. It was a collection of people, a gathering place, a place to debate, throw cyber stones, and gossip. Burgher... Why not just STOP posting and pass the Burgh Report onto someone who wanted to continue your success?
