Blog Staying Power – Will Yours Still be Here at the End of 2008?

A year is a long time in the on-line world. A large percentage of the blogs out there today will shrivel up and disappear by the end of 2008. Many others will still be there, but posting on them will have slowed down to a trickle… or will have stopped all together.

Most blogs don’t have the staying power to last a year. Look at the archives of the blogs you visit. What percentage only have a few months in them?

Exit78 has been around for a little over a year now. It has gone through several transformations and the URL had to be altered slightly. For some reason, Technorati wasn’t recognizing posts to the original URL.

While posts on the blog go back to December 2005, those before December 2006 were transfered from an earlier blog… one that shriveled up and disappeared. Before that there was a blog on Blogger; that one didn’t last long.

Will I be here posting to Exit78 at the end of 2008?

I’m making this one of my 2008 goals, so, yes, I will be posting here this time next year!

How about you? Will your blog still be here at the end of 2008?

    Barring any unforeseen circumstances yes I'll be here. I have had a website of some sorts for over twelve years. I'm not going anywhere. 🙂 I'm glad that you'll be around. You would be missed.

    Yeah – you're not allowed to go anywhere (except on vacation, that is)! 😉 I would like to think my blog will still be around if I am still around. I think I might have other blogs or a website by then though. I hope so.

    I think I will be, I'll be going to school for the next 2 – 3 years, however I plan to share some of the things I learn, within reason of course. I'll be studying to be a paralegal – so I think some of the knowledge I gain I can pass on to my readers to save them money on simple things. Etc. I plan to be a resource of sorts. 😀 Glad to know you'll be around too!
