When I started blogging about my experiences with and thoughts about MS, I had the impression that there was a thriving community of MS blogs and bloggers. There were even "MS Blog of the Year!' awards circulating. But now that I'm a year or so in (and yes, this blog had previous themes in previous lifetimes; it's only in this past year that it's really become "an MS blog"), I'm either missing the thriving MS blog and blogging community -- or it's not there.
As I peruse various MS-themed blogs, I find stories of people doing well: and as a result, they're not blogging. But there are sadder stories of others with challenges that keep them from blogging. Other blogs appear to have simply fallen quiet. As I know so well, we bloggers tend to sometimes leave our blogs over time. I wonder, is the incentive just not there when it comes to blogging about MS? I mean, YouTube channels dedicated to everything MS are thriving and multiplying. There are dozens of them. I have a few videos up on YouTube myself.
And so it is that I'm left wondering: where are all the MS bloggers? I'll have to try harder to find you.
