Where have all the Bloggers gone?

Recently there have been an increase in the numbers viewing this Blog.

I would like to think more people have decided that National Left is a erudite contribution yo the debate in Wales and beyond with people logging on thinking "What has glynbeddau on National Left have to say today.

Unfortunately the true reason for people turning to my rantings is that the number of Bloggers on Wales have fallen sharply over the last two years.  Some like Plaid Panteg and Dib lemmings have ceased altogether and others like Pendroni make only the occasional contribution . Whilst a number have become less frequent.though still make important  contributions.

It could be that we are between elections and only the local government elections have been there to stimulate us. Meaning those who are promoting a particular Party line think that other media are more important.

But its worrying . We need lots of different and regular contributions to stimulate the Welsh political scene.

It is sad therefore that Welsh Ramblings has pronounced that they are ceasing Blogging .

This will lead a big gap in the Welsh Blogging community an we desperately need it filled.

So we need some new Bloggers. If you know of any more Bloggers on  Welsh Politics and beyond let me know and I'll include them on list.

I would rather be a small fish in a big pond . Than a bigfish in a small pond that contributes nothing of importance.

The rise of Twitter? I wouldn't get too down. In the last two years we've seen the rise of Jac o' the North and Oggy Bloggy Ogwr, two of the best and most imaginative Welsh blogs.
