As you may have noticed my real life has encroached on my cyber life in a big way. There is precious little time for blogging left. More importantly I think that there is precious little motivation for blogging left.
I began this enterprise to feed my sick narcissistic hungers. A no-account-sharecropping-colored-man in real life, whose opinions are routinely ignored if ever heard at all, I thought that feedback from the J-Blogosphere might proffer me the recognition and approbation that was sorely missing from my home and office.
Not only has this lonely Red-Tent Blog never attracted any readership and comments to speak of but , increasingly, I get the feeling that Blogging is an enterprise whose time has come and gone.
I neither tweet nor have a Face-book account. My sense is that there is a generational rift. At the slopes the over 45 set is still skiing while the hip youngsters are snowboarding. In cyberspace it is only a few crotchety old tech-challenged curmudgeons who are still blogging. Tweeting and Friending is where the action is... and where I am not.
