The 'new wave' of Ham Radio.
Catholic bloggers complaining about low traffic levels, comments, and stats.
"It's a crisis in the making!" Stated a well-know blogger, famous for his money making apps attached to his website.
It's just not the bloggers - the advertisers are worried too, one woman promoting online donation schemes complained: "It's patheotic! It's almost like a famine... near-Biblical proportions!"
Lack of originality? Too many copy-cat posts? Too much people pleasing and wanting to impress others with posts about stuff people already knew but had forgotten? Or are people getting sick of sensationalizing stories the MSM has already finished with? (Dark Knight - so last week.) Too much holier-than-thou conversion stories? Not enough exposes and scandal mongering? Too much drinking and blogging? The experts aren't sure.
Aside from the demise of any credible or meaningful Blogger Awards competition, I'd say the economy is partly to blame. People are losing their Internet connections: they can no longer afford computers. They might have lost their homes, their cars, their jobs, their families, their credibility, and now, finally, they've lost their web access. That's what I tell myself anyway. Although many people are probably just on vacation, and many more just aren't interested.
Anyway, the blog is dead. I think Ham Radio is where it's at today!
[Speaking of vacations!]
This lovely, right-on-the-North-Shore
canned-ham trailer hideaway
is available for rent next week!
Sleeps 8 priests comfortably,
and roomy enough for conferences.
That's just about it!
