I’ve had a blog in one form or another since 1999. I started writing regularly in 2000. I have never read Scripting News on a steady basis. I only recently started reading it to learn more about RSS. Dave tosses out there that the RSS feeds generated by MT are funky – but won’t say what is wrong. Whatever. Does he not realize that to probably 98% of all bloggers out there it’s just noise? We don’t care. We blog, we share, we enjoy it all. If my RSS validates, which it does, then it is alright with me.
If you want to know the honest truth – I probably don’t read the blogs you think I read. There is a lot of noise out there, and I’ve learned to filter a lot out. There are some things I just don’t need in my life. It’s interesting to me when I notice.
Sorry Dave, but I won’t miss you. I appreciate the part you played in creating RSS, and it has become a daily part of my life. But if you go, someone else will take your place, someone else will fill your role. We’re all giving to the blog community in one form or another, but the blog community will not grind to a screeching halt if any of us leave.
