Gone-Away Bloggers

I've been thinking lately of bloggers whose blogs are now gone. This is one of the facets of online journals - that people get tired or busy or even, sadly die, and then their blogs are gone. Sometimes the writers leave a note on the door to tell us what's up, and other times I just click, and a notice from blogger comes up saying it has been removed. The four I've been thinking about, and missing lately (in alphabetical order) are:

Classical Calling
Gardens By The Lake
Love White Linen
Sweet Harvest Homestead

I hope that like this jaunty couple, they are off having a wonderful time.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog -- funny that we were on the same wave length about retired bloggers. I especially miss Kris at Gardens By The Lake. She never announced a hiatus, but I know she had a new grandchild.

  2. One of those is a friend of mine!
    She's busy with her children , homeschooling and watching them grow up. A good Mom! AND I got out my
    Dorothy Wordsworth Journal while teaching about her brother ! Fun to see that you have that out too!


  3. I may not post as often as I used to (or as often as I'd like), but I doubt I'll ever leave the blogging world. Do you ever wonder if it (Blogger, or any other such online blogging tool) will be around ten years from now?

  4. I have often felt bereft at the loss of a blog. Yet I go through spells when finding the time and energy to read and post just doesn't happen for me either, so I can understand why some people take long breaks.

    Nice to know that at least 2 of your "retired bloggers" are busy with fulfilling activities!

  5. I also miss Gardens by the Lake. I also feel sad when bloggers 'disappear'. Your comments look different! You are so savvy!


I am really going to try and respond to your comments as soon as they come in! I'm so grateful for your notes.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
