@pyrmont’s The Death of (Mass-Market, Ad-Supported) Blogging

who have always blogged in obscurity, welcome to the club. For us, there never was an audience.

I came to blogging for community (more sustainable than an audience? ). I stayed for the effect it had on my thinking.

@johnjohnston Thanks, I really liked this. I'm one of those bloggers who always remained in obscurity, never wanted ads, never saw my blog as a way to generate revenue. To be honest after fifteen years I'm still not completely sure what it's for or meant to be. But it has a life of its own now; I'm not sure I'd have the courage to pull the plug!
