Where Have All The Blogs Gone?

I mean seriously these guys are dropping like flies. Not the corporate, big dollar blogs that are peppered with big buck advertising, its the little one man and an opinion blogs that are disappearing with alarming rapidity.

Of the thirty or so independent blogs I follow about half have either disappeared completely or are withering away without any recent updates; whilst half of the rest are posting so infrequently that the distinction is becoming difficult to make.

Is this the impact of micro-blogging sites like Twitter? Or perhaps a sign that people are running out of things to say? Perhaps its financial - the reward not covering the effort required?

Whatever the reason its worrying to see even a small loss of the independent voice just at the time when the web is collapsing towards commercial bitch-dom.
