What Happened? - Orphan blogs....

Maybe its just idle curiosity or spending too much time on the web but I am always left puzzled about all those sailing blogs that just......STOP.

Has the wife killed the husband, pirates, eaten by a whale, what what... Does anyone have answers, questions, information, confessions.....

Post the blog here to get information or post your confession here. Some examples;

1. What happened to Freebirds, did she fall off the Harley; https://www.befreebirds.com

2. Did the tiger eat Sora???; Zoo | Sailing With Sora

Since I docked to work for a spell, I haven't done much with my blog. I doubt many would find it interesting to read about me working

I always wondered what happened to Labatt & S/V Pelicans blog...the financial crisis hit them hard, but its been absolute radio silence from them on the blog and even sailnet for too long.

Why did you take down all the previous stuff from before your change in direction? (Or am I just not looking in the right place?) It is still all interesting and potentially useful.

I get that. I hope you didn't delete it altogether, though, and will consider putting it up again once you've got your inertia back. I think it is always a shame to lose information like that.

Being able to share in your thought processes and decisions up to the point where you realized you needed to make a big change in strategy is probably a lot more helpful to many than all the "well, we just decided to up and sell everything and off we went happily ever after" stories you find.
