So Pam Furr is blogging again (but for how long, most bloggers who take long breaks don’t ever get back to it regularly). I went to her site and noticed she still has a link to Jim Leach’s defunct blog. Clicking the link, I actually found a blog at the other end. Someone is now using http://www.abelog.blogspot.com/. Not sure what it’s all about since it’s written in another language that I can’t immediately identify.
Blog rot is usually just a matter of links going dead over time. But left to rot long enough, links can apparently take on new life.
By the way, I’m not criticizing Furr for not maintaining her blog roll. Just try clicking through to some the blogs I’ve linked to and you’ll find nothing at the other end. Maintenance is needed.
