Missing an old blog buddy

(most of this was originally posted on December 14th in another blog)

Cabinboy has not posted anything since September.

I know that it is none of my business. He's a grown man, and it's a free country, and he's allowed to stop blogging any time that he wants to. I just wonder what happened to him, that's all.

It's not like he said he wasn't going to blog anymore. That would be nice, if people would leave a note saying that they're too busy to deal with the blog for the next year or so. But I guess they rarely do that. Just one day he didn't blog for a while, and then his next post was about his dog dying. And then the post about the dog was removed, and then nothing.

His mom hasn't posted anything on her blog since then either.

It's silly to think that anything happened to them. It's silly to be concerned about people I have never even met. I should get over it.

I wonder what happened to Cabinbabe too.

Happy Holidays, wherever you are.

(the following is new material)

Wonder what happened to Elranito?

That's why I originally started writing to many of you. I hit the next blog button and found Elranito. Started reading Anon 1. Starting talking to Rachel. Starting talking to David and some other old guy who reads Heinlein, and one of them (can't remember which) refered to me as "one of Anon's harem."

Anyway, the guy was blogging for about two months. He was debating about whether or not he should move back to Miami. Then something happened to his computer. Then he got a new computer and said how much he loved Sony, and that was the last blog post.

Does anyone know if he moved back to Miami or if he's okay and all of that? Maybe if he moved back to Miami he has such a busy social calender that he no longer has time for blogging. Hope that it is something nice like that, and not that he was killed in a terrible car crash trying to drive on the ice in the great white north.

Some people just disappear. I think that the statistic is that over 60% of blogs don't last a year.
There was one blog that I LOVED and the girl writing it just stopped. Same as ElRanito.
I haven't ever found anything decent by hitting the next blog button on blogger.

I've left two or three dead blogs behind myself.

I've done "next blog" thing only on a limited basis. Most of the returns are either in Spanish, or are spam blogs. However, I do wonder how random it is? I've not done the "net blog" very much at all, and once I found a blog that contained items with comments by someone with an ID I recognized from comments the same blogger left on Rachel's blog.

Hello, you.

Well, I was actually happy for a moment when I got a certain comment. I had thought that he had entirely stopped reading my blogs.

But now that I've had a moment to give it some thought, I think for now that he should not leave comments with that identity.

Comments from a previous identity are welcome, if that is still possible. Or we might look into getting him a different name.

I do not use this name to comment on his blog. I would like him to do me the same favor and keep things separate.

yep people up and wander away from their computer and maybe once in a blue moon decide to give it another go.. I've been blogging for a short time and I look forward to reaching that one year mark..I had another blog before but through all the changes in blog world I lost it.. so I started over.. and now I have 2 blogs.. one for poetry and artwork my brother does and my main one for everyday life.. I do afterall live in the blogging between naps and diaper changes and walks to the park..

It happens, I wouldn't worry.
