The Blog Atrophy
Hey, what happened to all the bloggers? Well… we grew up, grew out, and moved on. Perhaps we’ve become tired of community based online learning, we’ve discovered greater meaning in palpable communities, we’re pursuing new hobbies and responsibilities. We’re finding our internet memes and funny videos on social media. As developers we’re bored of whining about decrepit technologies, we’ve found contentment in friendlier frameworks and work environments. Our confidence and abilities have grown, we’ve discovered that tools don’t matter, we’re no longer here to present the tips and tricks of the latest technology. The blog once established our street cred, but online reputation has transitioned to open source contributions and sites like Stack Overflow and github. The effort of a blog is befittingly employed elsewhere.
