404 Errors

This morning I can honestly say I didn’t know what to write.  So looked to The Daily Post for inspiration.  Yesterday’s writing prompt was First Light.  I clicked on the highlighted portion of the prompt and it led me to “Comedy of Errors“.  I scanned over the submitted work on this prompt and noticed something.  There were 59 submissions to this prompt, however, of those 59, 11 are showing 404 errors.  404 errors usually mean that the page you are trying to access no longer exists,  however it could be as simple as a broken link (they changed the address of the post etc).  Anyway…

Of these 11 broken links I found that 6 of these blogs are still functioning but the page (linked post) had been deleted.  One of these blogs still existed but the owner deleted all of the content and appears to have abandoned ship.  The remaining 4 links led to blogs that no longer existed because they’d been deleted.

I said all of that for a reason I swear.

I have had my blog for almost 10 years.  I could never imagine just abandoning my blog.  I have created other blogs over the years in an attempt to separate and focus content topics.  I even tried to start a group blog once that consisted of 5 bloggers, me included, with the idea that everyone would post once a week.  That didn’t work out so well and I deleted the blog.  I still have one private blog that I maintain and have all but abandoned.  That one holds a special place in my heart and at some point I will go back to it.  That said, The Daily Blabber is my first blog and she ain’t going no where.

I understand deleting failed ideas.  Even though I have never deleted a post, I have hidden a few from the public.  So I can understand that too to a point.  What I don’t understand is that one person that deleted all content and abandoned the blog completely.  Here’s my question…

What would have to happen for you to abandon your blog?  Would you just up and leave?  Would you make it private until you are ready to come back to it (which I have done)?  Or would you simply delete it and walk away?

    1. I don’t quite get why people just abandon their blogs. Writers block happens, it’s not an excuse to delete a blog. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment :). Thanks for your link as well, I’ll have to check it out.
