A blog's lifecycle (or why are 95% of blogs abandoned?)...

While I'm actively blogging at the moment, here is a breakdown of a lifecycle of a blog:
  1. Euphoric moment of inspiration
  2. Pseudo-maniacal and self-indulgent perusing of domains
  3. Careful consideration of theme and design
  4. The inaugural post - "Hello world!"
  5. The 2-4 post honeymoon phase
  6. Waning and changing interests
  7. Feelings of desperation and apathy from low engagement
  8. Inevitable abandonment :(
What do you think?
A year later, kids are still getting stuck inside claw machines!

It's been almost a year since my last post! But children getting stuck inside claw machines remain a constant...

A 2-year-old unidentified girl crawling into a toy machine at the Mall at Robinson in Robinson Township, PA. She was eventually freed by Moon Run firefighters. If you can't get enough of this, here's a link to another report. (December 8th, 2010)

And in Australia, 3-year-old Tyler Bussier of Sydney in a toy vending machine at Greystanes. Firefighters eventually freed the boy. (June 1st, 2011)

Until another child gets stuck inside a claw machine...
