Abandoned blogs of yore

Lately I've been coming across old blogs that haven't been updated for years.  The writer was blogging away and then one day just stopped.  I wonder how many blogs that I like reading now will end the same way.  It's sad to think about.  I'd like to think that I'll be blogging for years to come.  I can't see my motivation waning anytime soon.  I'm sure my four readers are very happy about this.

I recently found a really old livejournal of mine.  The name of the journal was lame.  I don't even know what I meant by it.  I've actually tried to figure out what was going on in my head and I have no idea how I came up with the name for that journal.  I used the journal to vent when I was going through a really rough time health wise and I left that journal and moved on to a different livejournal with an equally lame name.  I've kept those journals up to remind me of my teenage/early 20s angst.  I can't even delete the horribly angsty one if I tried because I can't remember my password or the e-mail I used to sign up for that thing.  One more reason why I can never run for president.

I use to read Ari Goes Down back in the day.  I wonder if she's still blogging because I loved her blog.  If anyone knows please fill me in.*

Everywhere I go I keep hearing If I Die Young by The Band Perry and for a while I thought it was Taylor Swift.  Turns out they just have similar voices and similar hair.  So now I'm kind of obsessed with this song and I really don't want to be.  I also get really emo when I watch this video.  I can't think about the meaning of the song.  Thanks a lot The Band Perry.  I really think you should drop "the band" and just go by Perry.  Otherwise I will start going by the human Virginia.

*I totally found her new blog because I am an internet super sleuth!!!!!!


  1. I always wonder what happened to those bloggers as well. I definitely plan to continue blogging for a long time.

  2. OMG I hate that song. It makes me so sad. I have enough depressing shit in my life, i don't need music to make me feel that way too.

  3. I have a few old abandoned blogs out there somewhere in live journal land. Mostly depressing ones about my ex. Its kind of entertaining to read, but now here i am. Blogging away almost every day, i don't think i will be stopping anytime soon either.

  4. I had a LiveJournal as a angsty teen too. I found it recently, and was so embarrassed by it I ran away.
