The web is now littered with dead blogs. According to the New York Post, there were 200,000 abandoned blogs … in 2007. According to Richard Jalichandra of Technorati, the number of abandoned blogs is anywhere from 7 to 10 million in 2009.
Why do people abandon their blogs? Why do they start them in the first place? Too many have bought into the rags to riches stories of self-employed bloggers or have run out of topics, energy or desire to update. Now that reality has hit home, these dead blogs litter the web like dead leaves in November.
