So I was curious as to who got the "cool" blog name. Something like eric.blogspot.com, or ericcheung.blogspot.com (similar to mine, but I like that one better). In contrary to my expectation (perhaps I am a bit naive), most of these sites are either a place-holder for "sale" (which disgusts me) or the blogger abandoned them a long time ago. I believe those are the first generation bloggers, and after a while perhaps most of them got discouraged, or do not find a need to blog anymore.
This is somewhat discouraging, especially to a new blogger like me.
