The resurrection syndrome

Following up on Jameel's post lamenting the decline of the j-blogsphere, DovBear comments that there's nothing to worry about. I for one don't feel qualified to pass judgment either way as I'm more of a silent reader than a prolific writer/commenter. I just do this gig to feel like I'm part of the clique.

One thing I have noticed is what seems to be a "resurrection syndrome". As they started to get more popular and become more of a blogsphere cornerstone, a few bloggers decided to call it quits. Either they just disappeared, leaving their readers to wonder if they were kidnapped by the kanoim, or they just explained they weren't up to it anymore and said farewell.

Suddenly they're back from the dead.
  • The GoldolHador said farewell and promised he's not coming back. Sure enough, a short while later, he's baaaack.
  • MoChassid, one of the first blogs I started reading, also retired- claiming a loss of desire and new job pressures. Once again, the temptation proved to be too strong and as of late he's added to his biking tale's those of his latest OHEL 'acquisition'. Keep writing Mo!
  • Then (and I may be a bit behind the times on this one) I recently notice a blog that I think was really my first blog experience, arise from the dead too. Hasidic Rebel was one of the first of his kind and spawned many an imitator, before he suddenly vanished leaving us scratching our heads and with a lame Yahoo group instead.
So DB and Jameel, now that the big fish are back maybe things can still be interesting...

Time will tell. In the meantime, I'll still be reading (and maybe posting a little too)

Well, if you liked my posting, you can nominate it for a JIB "best post" :-)

Actually, it came at the perfect time...and the JIB's have really livened things up.

Hey, just cuz I quoted you doesn't make it JIBworthy. Besides, I don't see anyone nominating me.

What is weird is they left with no explanation and appeared back as if nothing happened.
Strange to say the least. Maybe it was jealousy of successful blogs that prompted them to start again.

I think it was only Hasidic Rebel that left without notice. The rest gave reasons, but then came back later.
