A Page of Inactive GeoBlogs

These are geoblogs that have moved or have been inactive through all or most of 2010 [updated Mar 2020]; many have been inactive longer than that. There are several classics on this list, which are worth perusing if you haven't already. I'll leave you to the exploring.

These blogs have been deleted from my Geoblogosphere page (except when reactivated or sporadically active), and are now shown as one link: A List of Some Inactive GeoBlogs (this post). There are several more inactive geoblogs; you used to be able find a complete list at Ron Schott's site, but it is offline. If you think you shouldn't be on this list, let me know.

NOTE: My Geoblogosphere page does not necessarily link to all geoblogs.

The list, as continually updated, shows blogs inactive for about a year (or more). Last updated 26Mar2020.

And another one called "Lore Deposit"


Silver Fox said...

Happy New Year!

I've just listed ones I had links to on my sidebar, and I can't find anything about the "Lore Deposit." Must be totally defunct? Or non-public?

Anonymous said...

Thanks for posting this and your sidebar. I know I have used your sidebar and links many a time to follow other things that I think will be interesting to me. I like the way you reference things so others can refer to them too.

Silver Fox said...

I've gotten quite a number of hits on this post, which surprised me considerably - I posted primarily so I could rearrange my sidebar.

Glad you've found it useful!

Hi, you were right about placing my blog in the inactive list back then. However, life has returned now (although not always in English).

And the amount of hits may be explained by everybody on the list getting a trackback and looking here. ;-)

Silver Fox said...

Effjot, am scratching you out and putting you back on the sidebar. :)

Thanks! So now I have to continue working hard to stay there. ;-)
