Goodbye “Time Goes By.”

A blog is closing today.

I hate to see that happen. Ronni Bennett and I tusseled over the use of the term Elderblogger, but she was always there with well written and coherent thoughts.

Until 11:00 a.m. today. Google pushed her over the edge.

It doesn’t make much sense to me, but it is so nevertheless – another one of those small incidents that pushed me over the edge is that as of a couple of days ago, Blogger blogs (owned by Google) no longer allow people without Blogger or Google accounts to leave their blog address on comments, instead supplying a link to sign up.

I’ve lost the heart to argue against that too, but I will not allow myself to be forced to join the Google Army bludgeoning its way toward world domination.

That is sad. But understandable. Four years of blogging is a long time. I hope as Time Goes By, she will find an outlet from time to time to weigh in with her thoughts.

UPDATE: Welcome back As Time Goes By. (She never missed a day.)

Goodbye “Time Goes By.” — 6 Comments

  1. Sorry to hear about your friend and fellow blogger shutting down. I just happened to read that blog myself a few times although I never commented. It’s always the small things that get to you.

  2. Ah heck, you know what I meant. 😀

    I just hate to see a good blogger go under that’s all. For myself, I’m too much of a…well…something that goes beyond description, to have that happen. At least I think so. Still, I’m sorry to see her go.
