What happens to blogs when they die?
Some time ago I realised that one of my favourite bloggers hadn’t posted for a while.
How We First Met
When I very first started blogging I went to a LearnFunFacts blog party. It was a last minute invite so I didn’t have much time to glam up and, being new to the neighbourhood, I didn’t know anyone so I was hanging around in the kitchen when I met this blogger. We got chatting, as you do, and he gave me some valuable advice about how to link my Gravatar to my blog.
As I recall, it was a Sunday night, and I had to get up at some unearthly hour the next morning to go to the day job, so I fought my way through all the partygoers (they were a wild bunch) and thanked the host, Edmark, before leaving the party quite early. It was a great party and I met a lot of interesting people there. If you ever get the chance, and particularly if you are a new blogger, try to go to one of Edmark’s parties; you won’t regret it!
However, we had exchanged blogging details so I kept in touch with the other blogger from afar and admired his blog posts and his wit, humour and principles!
But he hasn’t posted for a long time. He may have stopped blogging for a variety of reasons or he may have moved onto another blogging platform.
But he may be ill.
Or he may be dead.
And I will never know.
