Is the resession hitting bloggers?

Irish Times journalist Jim Carrol has been reporting on his blog On the Record of a number of bloggers hanging up their boots and calling it a day.

Though these bloggers were mostly music bloggers, is this a sign of things to come?
Some of the bloggers said that they decided to call it a day due to job pressures, also saying it had become too impersonal and time consuming.

The reality appears to be that writing a blog with a successful and regular readership is difficult at the best of times, and that when the feeling of impending doomb caused by the resession sets in, bloggers conclude that a blog is no longer a necessary pressure in their life, and people lose faith in the format.

Perhaps the limitations of the blog, and its short life expectancy are summed up here in this U.S. blogger's retirement post.
