Miss a blog, miss a lot

I'm been trying to get better about posting on my blog, but I haven't been so good at keeping up with the blogs on my BlogRoll. So, this evening I did a little house cleaning, and removed some blogs that I found I don't visit much anymore.

I also found a few blogs that have apparently fallen off the face of the blogosphere.

For the most part, dropping the blogs off the BlogRoll, or even the dead blogs, was no big deal. But I was sad that one of the blogs has apparently ceased to exist and could no longer be found. Even though the link goes nowhere, I couldn't bring myself to take it off my BlogRoll. It was a site called Phat Chick, by a blogger named Phoebe.

So I found myself wondering what happened to Phoebe. There's a whole mystery to a blogger going MIA.

My theory is that there was some sort of stalker incident, so she took the site down for her own protection. Or maybe someone out in the real world came across her sight and there was some ugliness related to posts on the blog or something.

So, here I sit, a little pouty at the loss of a blog friend, even though I didn't really know the Phat Chick at all. If anyone has any clues (or theories) as to the missing blogger, I'd love to hear them. Feel free to post them in comments, or send them via
e-mail.

How long has the site been down? Maybe the server is down temporarily? There's always that hope...

I take that back; I didn't realize it was a Blogger site. Hmmm...

Yes, that upsets. I have one that hasn't posted since June 4, and the last post she did said the family was sick. There's no email so I can't find out nothin'. Pish.

Why can't I see your Blog-list?

It's blank right now.

& Phat Chick didn't want to blog anymore...he last post stated that she might still comment from time to time...but she didn't feel that she was giving her site the attention that it deserved.

Thanks for not trashing me. :) I know I am a lazy blog buddy but I try to visit as often as time allows.

Chick, thanks for the information. That at least sheds some light on the situation. I'm still pouting though :-(. And I don't know why the Blogroll wasn't working. It seems to be up now (based on what I see) but let me know if you notice the same thing again.

And Lois, you were no where close to being removed from the list. Although you have so many fans, and my site doesn't generate enough traffic to make any difference for either of us, so it wouldn't matter if you weren't on my Blogroll. I'm sure you are on many, many others.

And Grrr, your site is way too much fun to be dropped.

And while I'm at it, Hoss and Caitlinator, thanks for the comments too. I'm proud to have both of you on my Blogroll as well.
