Friday Five: The Way We Blogged


A friend and I were lamenting recently about the good ol' days of blogging and memes. Certainly there are still some very active blogs around our web ring, but the days of the Friday Five getting 50-70+ responses are in the past. We lamented that the Friday Five is the equivalent of the women's guild of RevGalBlogPals.

I am one of those who went from blogging just about daily to periodically at best. Unfortunately, the number I routinely read has gone down as well. What about you?

1) Have your blogging (writing/reading) habits shifted since the days of yore?
2) Do you have some favorites that you miss?
3) Are there some blogs you still put in the 'must read' category?
4) If we gathered at your knee, what would you tell us about those early days of blogging?
5) Do you have a clip or a remembrance of a previous post of yours or someone else's that you remember, you know an oldie but goodie?

WAY back in the beginning I used to be one of the revgals who did a round up of what everyone posted that DAY. I cannot do that with 300+ blogs, but I can visit your Friday Five if you let us know in the comments that you played and here's how to link.

Thanks, and if you are Canadian or American, Happy Long Weekend!

  14. I really wanted to do this Friday Five because it so spoke to where I am. But, because of where I am, I still didn't find time. Been working on a sermon instead. I started blogging as a way of exploring my own sense of call and connecting to others to see how they were living theirs out. Now, at seminary, I have no time for this kind of writing. My social media socializing is done on Facebook, even though I can't be completely honest there. My reflective writing time goes into sermons and class papers. But I just wanted to drop by thank you all for still being there!!
