I look around the blog section these days, and I actually find it slightly depressing. I disappeared for more than a while, but upon my return I noticed many of the familiar faces I had grown so fond of have either disappeared completely, or have changed so drastically I barely recognize them.
As far as I can tell, BiserSchap is gone. I haven't seen or heard from her in quite a while, and she doesn't respond to emails.
EggOnlyEgg only seems to comment on features now, and barely responded to me when I sent her a message. Sounds like she has a busy life now, but it was disheartening nonetheless.
UgDork's still around, but is enjoying the success of his amusing comic strip series and doesn't have much time for the blog section it seems.
I see Kaustic on X-Box Live from time to time, but I still miss his writings around here a great deal.
Granted, some good has come of all this. Some people that needed to disappear have done so, and I largely thank the ebaum.tv revolution (How's that working out for ya, fellas?). Now, I come in and see a number of literary works by people I hardly even know, and the few friends on my list that have stuck around are being referred to as "old-timers."
At any rate, I guess there's no real point to any of this. Just the nostalgiac musings of a rambling old blogger. To those of you that read, thanks for listening. You may want to move along quickly, though, before the trolls come along.
