I was running through my blawg roll (on the right) earlier and realised I’d have to have a bit of a prune. Anything with no posts since May goes out, I thought.
Blimey, a few surprises there. I’d put some silences down to it (technically) being summer, but it seems that there has been a self induced purge. So, a quick taxonomy of the disparu et perdu (with examples but without links for obvious reasons):
Ran out of vim – just stopped posting for no apparent reason and without so much as a goodbye, leaving a ghost blawg.
Croslandite Barrister, James Medhurst, Outside the Law, Terminological Inexactitudes [Edit 26/08/07 – Apparently not dead, but being mysterious], ukblawgers.
Folded their tents in the night – hang on, there used to be a blawg there! What happened?
The former Legal Scribbles. PSLBlog. [Edit 24/08/07 – PSLblog is alive and well – I missed the address change. The new address is on the right. Thanks Nick.]
The ‘I’m going to post more often, honest’ last post – the clear deathknell.
Civil Litigation and Liability Watch, James Medhurst, Law Apprentice.
A bit of a mystery (and hopefully wrong).
Lawyer-2-be (and also her shiny new blog the-pupil), Belle de Jure. Both (or all three) recently just completely vanished. [Edit 25/08/07 – both are confirmed as gone by choice.]
I’ve not counted much of the coming and going of student blawgs, as transience is arguably in their nature, and there have been some quality newcomers as well, particularly in family law. But that is quite a few interesting and entertaining blawgs down the pan.
