Ted Olsen at Christianity Today on "The Death of Blogs." Blogs disappear and others are created [and some are reincarnated]:
Tech researcher Gartner Inc. reported earlier this year that 200 million people have given up blogging, more than twice as many as are active.

"A lot of people have been in and out of this thing," Gartner analyst Daryl Plummer told reporters. "Everyone thinks they have something to say, until they're put on stage and asked to say it." Given the average lifespan of a blogger and the current growth rate of blogs, Gartner says blogging has probably peaked.

Which isn't to say that blogging is dead. Quite the opposite. Blog aggregator Technorati estimates that 3 million new blogs are launched every month.
I used to be one of those annoying people who emailed articles to all and sundry. One of the advantages of blogging is the ability to share what interests me without intruding. Friends and acquaintances, and total strangers, can look in and see, but only if they wish to do so.
