I’m not on leave yet, but I’ve been busy in the offline world marking scripts for two professional qualifications. My house has also been struck by lightning, taking out the PC, TV, phone line and other equipment. Though there’s always time in a busy schedule to post, there isn’t time enough at present for me to keep up with blog browsing.
This leaves one eery thought. What happens when bloggers die? Unless we leave our passwords and simple posting instructions with someone we trust, there will simply be a prolonged silence followed by removal of the site when the subscription lapses. Is this lapsing into a silence an appropriate metaphor, or should we seek a more conclusive end. Self-written obituaries in draft format?
Sorry to be mawkish. It was only my house that was struck by lightning, not me. And things are relatively easy to replace.
