Last week, the blogosphere erupted with screams of protest and condemnation following the revelation of death threats and personal attacks against blogger Kathy Sierra. In a show of support for Sierra, and in protest of the threats, popular blogger Robert Scoble vowed to not write any posts for a solid week.

It’s hard to imagine an entire week going by without a single post from Scoble, given the fact that he is one of the most active posters throughout the entire blogosphere. The guy is a blogging machine and seems to really enjoy spending countless hours behind a keyboard interacting with his ever-increasing web following.

As it turns out, Scoble only lasted five of seven days sans blogging. I can hardly blame the guy for coming back a little early, though. I’m impressed that he managed to last as long as he did. 

The Sierra story has passed so quickly in the past week, however, that Scoble barely touches on the issue in his first post since the ordeal:

Seriously, on Monday I’ll be on CNN with Kathy Sierra and Chris Locke talking about this week’s events. I spoke against more rules or other infringments on our freedom of speech. No matter how vile or disgusting that speech is. That said, I reserve my right to take a week off to point out the rotten strawberries sitting on our meme shelf.

I have to admit that I was really anticipating what Scoble would have to say given the time he had to reflect on the events that transpired. The post feels anticlimactic, but it’s understandable that Scoble would join the rest of the blogosphere in trying to put the whole thing behind him and get back to what he actually enjoys blogging about.

I won’t spoil the fun of what Scoble did talk about in his first post back, but I will tell you that it has to do with a huge venture between Apple, Amazon, Google and Cingular. How’s that for a teaser to wet your technological appetites?

When I see Robert salivating over dream gadgets, it just tells me that the blogosphere is finally back to normal after the Sierra fallout.
