Wither Blogging?

Is the thrill of blogging gone?

According to The New York Times, blogs have a higher failure rate than restaurants, and the Internet is littered with orphaned sites, cast aside:
“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 translates to 95% of blogs being essentially abandoned, left to lie fallow on the Web, where they become public remnants of a dream — or at least an ambition — unfulfilled.”

I disagree; I think it's like everything else you want to do (or not do). You make the time for it. Or not.
