Except people do. Kottke does, still, and regularly. But in the corners of the blog world old favorites still blog (e.g: Tony Pierce, Suebob, Peter-Paul Koch, The Militant and many others). I know this because I follow things in my RSS Reader, powered by Tiny Tiny RSS which I run on my hosting setup. Shared setup because I am not cool and no virtual servers and am not “serverless” and pay good money for system administration thank you very much.
RSS is still great. RSS/Atom, whatever it takes.
Oh, did I mention I’m old? Well I am I guess. I’m 46 and continue aging. I can see my eyesight failing tiny increment by tiny increment, as a Gaussian blur takes shape year over year at things distant and close.
But physically I’m better than in a long time. I can walk father and am stronger than I’ve been in a long time. How? By being physically active regardless of how incompetently I am physically active. I take walks. I wander. I swim. The same ethos that has me drawing on the regular (draw a lot and poorly to get better) it has turned out works for exercise. I don’t call it art, I don’t call it exercise, and it’s tolerable and worthwhile.
Meh. This was a blog post in 2016. Look at that.
