I would like to call attention to blogs which are not merely inactive but have also vanished.
People who allow their materials to vanish from the internet are not real bloggers, as they don't understand the purpose of the internet. In fact, my paid blogging for KCET has vanished from the internet, and nobody seems interested in taking my calls. I imagine I have raw text for this somewhere. I'm in the porcess of reorganizing all my old files from my old computers. We'll see if I can recover that material.
Collide-A-Scape's early stuff is gone; this rankles me especially as I participated actively there.
And of course, Facebook keeps everything you've ever written for them, but doesn't really let you find it.
Others from the Hall of Shame:
If you comment extensively on a site you don't control or contribute to an aggregator, particularly one run by an institution or a big media outlet, make backups.
The following blogs are off the roll. When I last checked, these were inactive but still live on the internet:
- Class M INACTIVE
- Climate Feedback INACTIVE
- Climate Safety (P.I.R.C.) VANISHED
- Climate Science Watch (Piltz) INACTIVE (R.I.P.)
- Climate Security (I.I.S.S.) INACTIVE
- Colose INACTIVE
- Common Tragedies INACTIVE
- Cost of Energy INACTIVE

Also, I would like to apologize for having linked to Curry's "Climate Etc." which is emphatically part of the problem.
