Mass Abductions

February 28, 2009

abductionSo, as anyone paying attention to WoWInsider or a number of the various other places we find blogs about our game might know, Resto4Life is shutting down due to a “bun in the oven” and such things.

The somewhat unsettling thing, however, is that this seems to be symptomatic of a much larger movement within the “Blog-o-sphere”. Checking through my bookmarks, at least five of them (R4L included) are shutting down, considering shutting down, or just moving in a new direction.

  • Resto4Life – As noted above, totally understand the whole having kids thing. It is almost like one of those “life-changing” sort of deals.
  • Gun Loving Dwarf Chick – Has taken the “moving in a new direction” approach. Closing GLDC to work on priesty stuff and the Twisting Nether podcasts.
  • The Rambling Bear – Hasn’t been updated in months, no official post on it though.
  • That Damn Role Player – Is considering leaving the game altogether. and…
  • Hots-n-Dots – Disappeared like it had never existed… (Yeah, the link is broken, but I had to make it match the other four. HAD to. Obsessive? No, why would you ask that?)

This is sadness, and yet life does go on. They all had very good reasons (or at least I’m assuming that wherever we aren’t told what happened, it was a good reason). I’ll be sad to see all these guys go, but I wish them all the best of luck with whatever they are doing, or will be doing, now.


P.s. – Yeah, I kinda broke that whole only posting on Tuesdays thing but hey, at least this is activity in the right direction, eh?
