IB Blog Authors September 28, 2014Posted by geoff in News.
Just looking over the post tallies for all the approved authors at this site. We have a total of 5910 posts since the blog’s inception in 2006. Michael is like the Brett Favre of blogging, with an unassailable lead in posts:

Most of us aren’t online as much as we were back in the heyday (2003 – 2010). You see a lot of names of people who don’t hang out all anymore, like Brewfan, EddieBear, Kevl, Mrs. Peel, and composmentis. Harrison, of course, passed away two years ago, which has never stopped sucking.
With all the casualties of time and real life, I think the blog needs a jolt to get a little more energy in the place. Personally, I’ve avoided writing on most of the mainstream news topics just because I think other blogs have beaten them to death. But I think I’ll start hitting them anyway. Nothing like the outrage du jour to get the blood flowing.
Beyond encouraging the authors to continue/resume posting (Sobek was awesome over the past week, and Lipstick’s post was an all-too-rare treat), I’d like to extend an invitation to those who might want to join the illustrious roll of IB authors. I’d particularly like more humorous posts because, well, mine rarely are.
I’d like to get the blog back up to 3 – 4 posts a day, and resurrect the comments section so it’s as interactive and lively as it was 4 years ago.
But I’d prefer to keep the cats to a minimum. Really. Hating the cats.
