Then there are the abandoned Blogs. Ones that haven't had a post in two or three years. Sometimes I'm amazed at the amount of time and energy that went into these blogs, but then the blogger just wandered off. And I wonder what happened to them. Of course several times I've almost given up blogging, so I can see how it happens, but it's still odd to come across these blogs that ran for several years and just stopped. Sometimes there's a final explanatory post, but most of them seem as if the blogger just left one day and didn't' return. And who knows? Maybe they will come back at some point.
The ones that seem the saddest to me are the ones that have only one post, usually something along the lines of "This is my blog! Here I'll be keeping people posted with the events of my life and things that interest me. Welcome"
And that's it. Three years later and they never posted again. Hopefully these folks weren't hit by a bus or something.
Anyway, if I ever give up Singular Points, I'll probably make a final post and leave it up for a couple of months and then delete the blog. My brother and I often kid about how when we closed our Karate Dojo after 21 years, not only did we gut the building and take down the road sign, but we also salted the ground so nothing would ever grow there again. When I'm done, I'm done.
