"One less guard on the wall"

William Jacobson notes that independent conservative bloggers are going away. (Link via Instapundit.)

Independent conservative bloggers are a dying breed, I’m sorry to say.  They either burnout, or they join an established website.

Yet the walls still have to be guarded by independent bloggers who bear a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom, and while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, you want us on that wall, you need us on that wall.


But hey, I'm still here.

This happens on the left, as well. The Golden Age of Blogs is over, I'm afraid.

Funny, I don't think of you as conservative.

I think of you more as a liberal. In the classical or Hayekian sense. What is often called "libertarian" today.

Whatever. I don't really care about the label.

I love the blog. Been reading it daily for a couple years now. I wish you would post more but, if there is any risk of burnout, I wish you would post less.

Don't go away.

John Henry


I suspect that blogging will resemble a lot of "jobs" in the future: They come and go and are not permanent. As familiar bloggers leave, new ones pop up.

I'm not reading all the same blogs today as I was 3 years ago. Some but not all. I find new ones and hang with them a while, then they or I move on.

I'll miss "The Daily Bayonet" but life goes on. Hang in their, Craig.


Yeah, what John Henry et al. said. Stay the course, Craig ...

Patrick R. Sullivan

Like MacArthur, I have returned (but I'm no more a conservative than Craig).

Me too.
