Another blog goes poof over the weekend. This time it was Seasons of Tumult and Discord.
Why do bloggers do the blogocide thing. I can understand needing a break. I can understand deciding to quit. But why delete your blog without warning?
If you need a break, just tell your readers you are taking a break. If you want to quit, just do as Novaseeker did: Post a notice and leave your blog up. What is with the white-paging or 404ing?
Deleting a blog not only means the loss of the posts, it means the loss of the replies. Also a little warning might be polite. It is not like you remain hidden, as the pages will be cached in various place for at least some time (Google et al may eventually delete cached versions of deleted blogs.
This is not just about the Seasons of . . . bloggers, it is to all of you blog murderers out there. You know who you are (were).
