FRIDAY THREE: IN MEMORIAM

everybody out there, help me out here with this one. please participate.
the Oscars telecast is famous for its In Memoriam segment, where we all take a moment to remember those we lost in the film industry this year, their bright faces shine on the silver screen as maudlin, sometimes inspirational, music plays in the background. well, blogs and bloggers can be memorialized in this way, too. blog friends are fickle, they can be your bestest friend in the whole wide world ever one minute, a wisp of online air that disappears in the night the next, never to be heard from again. hey, i sympathize, i can relate, lord knows how many times i've wanted to delete this albatross of a blog i've got here and move on, whatever "on" may mean. so, in the spirit of this being the last week (ever), think of three blogging friends of yours whom you've lost contact with, either they deleted their blog, they were forced to delete their blog, you woke up one morning to find their blog deleted against their will, ahem, like me, ahem, Blogger, fuck you Blogger, i lost over 500 followers at my previous blog, i'll never forgive you for that...or the blog is simply abandoned...by the way, there is something surreal and eerie about an abandoned blog, ya feel me? it just sits there, stuck on a date eight months ago, you feel that the author wasn't done expressing her thoughts, there's more to say, that's why it's abandoned and not deleted, it's still there, it still exists, if she can only reach the keyboard again, extricate herself out of the dire situation she is in which is preventing her from posting anew, it leaves her readers with a sense of worry but also sparks the imagination as to where she is now, what she's doing, what she's doing at this very second to get by/live her life.
yeah, so instead of the usual five questions which you find here at this time each week, list the 3 blogs/bloggers you miss and explain what made these online people special to you, leave them with a little end-of thank-you note for all that they did for you in coping with whatever in your life. now don't go revealing any aliases or breaking confidentiality agreements or anything, don't go causin' trouble now, keep the anonymous anonymous, this is meant to be a fun game, not a lawsuit. follow my example in the comments section. happy holiday season, my beloved babies. oh, my own future? all signs point to hazy, we'll see what happens with a few of my spoons in the pot this coming month...

Bit Player Reflects: we had a connection, i know we did. can i come over tonight? and then, y'know, there was the whole Bjork thing...

Daisy: bar none, she had the sexiest body ever on the internets, ever, ever, the whole entire internet. those silky curves of hers, i always told her her body was a divinely-inspired work of art, just hope she and her family are doing well now.

Rage and Temper: remember Rage, the punk princess babe with the purple/red hair? she was awesome, she was awesome to me when i was just starting out with this blogging thing. i believe Temper was her husband, new husband, long-time boyfriend at any rate...yeah, good times, those were great screen names, huh? rage and temper...she was cool, kind.

peace to all :)

Batteries Not Included: This blog has been defunct since October 2011, and her Twitter feed similarly dormant. We didn't interact all that much, but we enjoyed commenting on her blog and receiving comments from her.

Sexxcited: A fun, sexy blog detailing the exploits of a single woman named Dru. I suppose that we miss her in part because our blog inspired her to start blogging about a year ago. She was a sweetheart.

Seducing the Gods: Justin and Betty were the first friends we made after we started blogging. Their blog still exists, though they haven't posted since May 2010. They were young, sex-positive parents, and as we were expecting our child at the time we really found much to discuss with them.

I wish I could answer your questions, but I'm too new to blogging, so I haven't had a blogger/blog disappear on me. I will say that Carolina's Sexy Blog started it all for me.

I, unfortunately, have none to add to this list, because I have only been blogging for a little while. I have run across a couple of blogs that I really thought I wanted to follow, though, until I realized that they hadn't been posted on in a really long time. I don't know if that counts. It's nice, though, to remember those who have gone on....even if it is to another blog or life without blogging....thanks for remembering!
