Archive Sites

Sadly, blogs and Web sites disappear periodically, their authors tiring of the work that goes into writing these resources or keeping them up to date. Many other such enterprises, however, are allowed to go fallow, not vanishing but no longer receiving the attention they once did. Below are a few sites we enjoyed in their heyday, and think continue to be of interest, even in their dormancy.

A final appeal: Don’t kill your blog or Web site! By doing so, you only create dead links from other sites. If you must stop writing online, please just let your work sit as it is without further updating. Place a notice at the top of your blog or other Web page, informing readers that you’ve gone temporarily or permanently out of business, but that they can continue to check back on your existing material in the future. Readers and researchers will appreciate your consideration.
