Yesterday there was some problem with one of the blogs I follow being tagged has having malware on it...because I was a follower my blog roll was showing it and that caused my blog to also have a warning.
I removed that blog from my follower list.
And then I decided time to clean up..I went through and removed a bunch of blogs that aren't active. It was painful to do: some of them are not active, but presumably just going on with life -- sans blogging..we don't get to know. Some are at a good stopping point, ran their marathon, etc. and moving on.
But some got sick. There's one that got a diagnosis of MS and is going from a very fast runner to somebody just happy to run at all.
There's another that went in for a surgery for a tumor on the kidney....and never came back to blogging after.
A couple of bloggers just stopped...no reason given...why did you drop off with no message?
I wish bloggers didn't think it all had to be sunshine and roses. We know it's not all easy out there. Tell us the truth and let us help.
Blogging isn't just for runners conquering goals and showing off improvements and new running gear. It's also for people that need support through trying times. We're all one step away. Let us help! Please don't just check out.
