I doubt we will ever see headlines like this, but, if you listen close enough, you may begin to hear whispers in cyberspace that there are too many blogs.
But, is there?
Cyberspace reminds me of the small, but growing town, we live in. When we moved here 20 years ago, it was a quaint community, filled with “mom and pop” stores, a barber shop, complete with the red and white pole, one high school, and living in the country, meant you were only a mile or so from the main street.
But soon, more and more people “discovered” our town, and it has seen a real boom (until the recent real estate crunch).
As families began to move in, I would hear some of the new people say, “Close the door, we don’t want any more people here” We want to preserve this small town atmosphere.”
Now, most of the family owned businesses have been replaced by corporate giants like WalMart, Lowe’s Home Depot, and Target. We now have three overcrowded high schools. and living in the country, means you are 10 miles from the “freeway”. The barber shop, with its red and while pole, survived the boom, so all is not lost.
Cyberspace (or us bloggers), could easily develop that same attitude. “I have mine (blog)…. but we don’t need any more.”
Now, I would hate to see that happen. I believe many great blogs are started every day.
Blogs meet our ever changing needs. Just as the headlines change daily, so does what people search for.
Although we may become attracted to certain “types” of blogs, there is a yearning in most of us, to learn more.
Personally, I doubt, there can ever be too many blogs. Good ones, that is.
To prove my point, I would like to take this opportunity to share a shiny, new blog with my readers. The author and blog share the same name: Hunter Nuttall.com Hunter will be posting articles on personal development. A topic that’s near and dear to my heart, and it’s a subject from which we can all benefit. Good Luck, Hunter!
