The Graveyard

Many people start up blogs with the best of intentions and lots of enthusiasm: They think they'll have plenty to say for years on end and loyal readers will bookmark them and check back three or four times a week till the end of time. This leads to the conundrum of dead blogs. A dead blog is defined as one that hasn't had a new post for three months.

For instance Bad Medicine, a blog on medical politics, hasn't been updated since July 26, 2008. Ramblings of a Madman hasn't had any new ramblings since May 15, 2008. Something called Corporate Bloggers Revolution hasn't had a new post since October 29, 2006; apparently the revolution never came.

That's kind of sad, isn't it? These blogs sometimes stay forever out there in cyberspace, left in limbo, never to be updated or even read. There should be a blog morgue that people can call up to get their dead blogs removed.
