Dead Blogs and Blogger Outreach

Halloween is almost upon us, but I don't want you to think that it's the holiday spirits that are turning my thoughts to a morbid nature.

There's one thing that really bothers me... seeing dead and forgotten blogs.

Every week I take a little time to read through some of the blogs in my blog roll, but I also try to find at least a couple of new cake or baking blogs.  It always breaks my heart to find one that hasn't been updated in a long time.  I find myself wondering what might have happened... Was blogging just not for them?  Were they discouraged because they never found their audience or never got any feedback from their visitors?

So I thought we might try a little experiment.  I thought I could find a few of these defunct blogs and maybe if we visited them, and left them a comment could we get them blogging again?  Call it Blogger Outreach, or maybe Blogger Goodwill.

I'm going to list 3 blogs below.  These are bloggers that showed promise and talent, but for some reason stopped blogging.  I have visited these blogs and left them a comment encouraging their work and telling them that people are interested in their work.  All I ask is that you do the same.

 Let's see if we can coax these bloggers back into baking and blogging.  Thanks for reading and thanks for stopping by.  I'm glad that I found an audience and a voice and I can only hope the same for others!  Have a great week!


  1. Maybe they are just taking a break?

    I always get a little sad when I realize that I haven't seen a blog have an update in awhile.

  2. I totally agree! I love finding a new blog, but it is sad to see a good blog go. Maybe they weren't getting any feedback or just got really busy. Sometimes I get fed up with it, but I like the community so that keeps me going. :)

  3. So thoughtful of you Jenniffer! I'll admit I've fallen off the blog wagon too, but I still love to catch up on the haps of my cake friends!

  4. @BellaLovesPink - Yes, you better watch out or you;ll be on my next Blogger Outreach post! ;)

    Thank you all for your comments! I can look at Google Analytics all day long (yawn!), but one really great comment will make my day and inspire me to do better!


Thanks for visiting the blog! I look forward to reading your comments!
