Back in the days before Facebook, Twitter, and Tik Tok destroyed our ability to remain focused for more than 15 seconds and to consume long-form content, blogs were kings, and to me 2Blowhards was the mightiest of them. Thoughtful and inspiring posts — mostly about arts — and the authors’ no-nonsense writing were a pleasure to read, but what stood out was their trademark ‘Dear Blowhards’ that started (almost) every post.
I lost the link to 2Blowhards after it was ‘frozen in amber’ in 2010, and for almost a decade my searches with the mis-remembered keywords ‘Dear Friends’ were vain. Only a few days ago, I found the link that was in my old blog on the Wayback Machine. At last!
