    Great post Alex! I have been feeling a little discouraged about blogging lately, but this makes me feel a bit better. When are you going to New Orleans? I am going in April too!

    You’re a wise one Obi Wan! So true. Blogging is only dead for those who stop.

    Stay warm and I promise not to post any flower pictures. YES, our pink magnolias are blooming. They’re gorgeous! But April will be here before you know it. “Le Bon Ton Roule”!

    Love this post, Alex! Blogging ain’t dead to me: I’m only getting started!

    And as they say, “Comparison is the thief of joy!” I think that you should do what you love to do, and if you get an audience, rad.

    If you don’t, at least you’re loving life!

    Going to peruse some of your recommendations, lady! 🙂

    Thanks for writing up your positive spin Alex. Since I haven’t really experienced the apparent “before” of blogging I’m not sure what all the glumness is about, but my honeymoon ain’t over yet! Maybe ignorance is bliss but it was also refreshing to read your take. Thanks!

    Lots of great points Alex! BTW I met Rachel from 52 Weeks Project at AltSF last summer and we’ve become great blogger friends. She’s awesome!!
