Lots of Dead Blogs

Seems like allot of dead or no longer updated blogs around these days. Getting tough to find stuff to read as well after sliding down my own list that I read as well other blog list on some other blog sites. Many seem to be quitting or just no longer update their blogs anymore.

Tough finding enough good stuff to read when I'm mobile or at work as well.

Is the Golden Age era of WoW blogging passing by?

Sooner or later it all ends one by one.

Yes and no. There's a generation shift I think. A lot of established blogs have stopped updating or do it very slowly. But on the other hand there's a swarm of new blogs popping up. Check the introduction forum at Blog Azeroth and you'll see.

I agree with the above comment, you are one of the few blogs that still update regularly from when I was blogging under Lesser Healing Wave.

Even though I stopped posting there due to a massive name change (one of the biggest mistakes ever), I'm blogging again about WoW (and many other things of course).

Quite a few are indeed stopping their bloging activities. Quite a few though crop up every day...

I'm amazed how many new blogs turn up every day. The list at "blog azeroth" website is very long.

@ Lariss. Thanks for reminding about Blog Azeroth. It's been a while since I've checked overthere.

I'm aware that new blogs pop up daily and all the time. The other thing with that is of all the new ones that pop up how many really keep their blogs active and updated and don't quit before discouragement of blogging sinks in for some of them. You may find a new blog but you can end up looking for something else just as fast because the new blog don't stay around very long sometime either.

I'm constantly surprised how many long-running blogs there are that I haven't read. I'll stumble across a link somewhere and there will be a blog I find interested and it's been constantly updated for months.

There have been quite a few big name ones that have closed, but I still find more than enough lunch time reading material out there.

Yeah I do find new blogs from time to time just following links, blog rolls on other blogs i read or a post or just following stuff on other comments or back tracking from a commenter. Often surprised what I find as well.

But these days quite a few of the Veteran WoW bloggers that were blogging way before it was popular back when I started blogging now either blog less or don't blog anymore. Some just no longer play.

I suppose it's much like playing... eventually you get tired of it and move on to a new game/blog.

Then again I can't say I ever ran out of blogs to read even on slow work days. Go with the smaller ones :P
