there is no message we're receiving, let me know, is your heart still beating?

it feels like the little corner of the blogosphere that i inhabit has turned into a ghost town. updates to blogs i follow are few and far between. i'm lucky if i get more than three views on a post these days. and i think i saw a tumbleweed blow by here a few minutes ago. i dunno what happened, exactly, but i'm getting flashbacks of my fourth grade class taking the gold rush.

the inside of my head is pretty much deserted, too, which isn't a terribly great thing since school starts in a week and i am in no way prepared to pick up my preparations for my phd and act like i didn't just spend the past three months pretending school did not exist. and next week i'll be in connecticut visiting my grandma and pretending that my academic career ended six months ago like it would have if i wasn't such an idiot.

i keep writing and deleting fragments of thoughts and sentences and ideas. i can't follow a thought through to elaborate on anything anymore. hopefully a road trip will wake up my brain, and i'll come back to a repopulated blogosphere.

    yup ghost town!!!

  2. This made me laugh. I feel the same way! I flip through my older, less well written, super sappy blog posts and gawk at how many comments and page views they used to average. These days I'm lucky to get a single comment per post... But then I have to remind myself that I never did it for the publicity anyway...even though it did make it fun. ;)

  3. i do that, too! and then i'm like, "really?? that got more attention than this? compared to that this is pure genius." i never did it for the publicity either, and granted never really got any, but comments did make the whole thing more fun. i wonder where all the people went.

  4. I clicked through a lot of my followers and discovered that tons of them simply gave up blogging but didn't delete their accounts. I feel like everyone is jumping off the blogging bandwagon these days.

  5. that's sad. i love the blogging bandwagon. i don't want everyone to leave.
