“Jack, is your blog dying, or is it dead?”
I asked the writer of the email how to define a dying blog but I didn’t get a response to the question I asked.
Heck, I didn’t get a response or any indication they received it, not even a remark about how annoying it can be to answer a question with another question.
We could build a 1000-word post on this without much effort and could probably go deeper but there is no interest on my part.
I am on vacation and if the subject doesn’t move me I don’t intend to move. Nonetheless in this circumstance, I am prepared to share a few thoughts.
A blog doesn’t have to have to comments to be considered a living blog, just new posts or comments that advance/continue the discussion on old posts.
You don’t need a specific editorial calendar or schedule of new posts either. You just need to update it periodically and voila, the blog is a living thing.
The mighty JackB isn’t dead though you could argue it has periods of semi-hibernation compared to what it used to be.
If you keep visiting you’ll keep seeing new posts and various changes that could include a resumption of a daily or weekly update.
Remarks of my death, the JackB are greatly exaggerated.
