Blames “vitriol.” After three weeks of silence on her Alisyn in the Greenroom blog, the “vacationing” Fox & Fans Weekend co-host Alisyn Camerota wrote, “Sorry for the blog hiatus–our technical problems have yet to be worked out.” [Italics added for emphasis.] On the day after she had cheerfully Tweeted, “Heading out to the beach. Off tomorrow. Cya!,” Aly began to prepare her readers for the probable end of her Fox & Friends Weekend blog.
After her apology to her readers, Aly began, “Blogging takes more time than I usually have while I’m hosting the show.” Less than convincingly, she explained, “And as you know, I like to give everyone a thoughtful response (ok, sometimes just a response) which has become harder on wordpress recently, plus reading or writing anything can distract from focusing on the show.” Aly concluded, “So while I figure out if i can continue to do it, if there’s no blog post, you can find me on Twitter.” Then, perhaps, giving the real reason for potentially ending her blog, she added, “I’m warming to Twitter since it cuts down on the vitriol that sadly the blog often falls victim to.” [Italics added for emphasis.]
Holding out hope, albeit faint, to her readers, she exclaimed, “But I’m open to suggestions!”
Aly fans, do not despair. Even if Aly does quit posting articles and corresponding to readers on her blog, she has begun to take Twitter more seriously. The whilom Twitter Twit has finally begun to Tweet more often on her page and to reply more regularly to her followers. Hope still lingers!
