blog eulogies

The decision by Greg from NZ Political Comments to give up blogging has prompted several posts lamenting and/or commenting on his departure, as well as many comments to his original post, mainly expressing regret. This is just another in a recent line of blog euthanasias (although at least one has merely reinvented themselves, eg Ruth previously of Freudian Slippers).

It's all a bit like being able to watch your own funeral - you get to see who likes you, who doesn't, and in fact you could even reply to them if you ever come back to your blog again.

But perhaps it would be helpful if people could be open about their loves and hates before Blog Death occurs, just like in real life, it might make a difference to someone - I know I'm soft, but it would be good if we could all be a little nicer to each other.

For the record, I hope that Greg pops up somewhere else soon :-)

Oh, I'll keep commenting around the place!
And I may return in some other form some time in the future. But not for a while at least.
