Blog to Watch Scratch that ~ Blogs to Miss

There are so many blogs out there and its like a favorite tv show, we look forward to the episodes, rise and fall with the trials and tribulations of our heroines and then one day, the show goes off the air and we are left heartbroken.  That is what it’s like when bloggers cease to blog.  Either they gave us a chance to say goodbye as they made a big change in their life or are no longer inspired or they just stopped updating and the blog sits on some distant date in the past or worst of all they erased their blog all together!  Style Bytes is probably the most recognized defunct blog.  At first seemingly out of the blue she took her site down completely, then one day the archives were back thank goodness but no new update in the last 2 years.  Below are some of the blogs I really miss!

Style Bytes
Mahalo Fashion
Zombie Lace
Fops & Dandies
Our Paper Moon
Whimsical Nerd
Fashion Robot
Sunny Side Uptown
Hidden Seed
Strawberry Kitten
Hysteric Girl
Only Shallow
Rosate Spoonbill
What Chuck Wore




What blogs do you miss?

    ugh I was just thinking about Style Bytes the other day…Agathe would have been huge now with all the hoopla for bloggers

    I remember Style Bytes! I read Zombie Lace too…Rock and Roll Gypsy was pretty cool too.

    I still miss Style Bytes the most, even though it’s been a while! But, thinking on from Eli’s comment, maybe in a way it’s good she quit before she could become huge and overhyped and hijacked by commercial interests… I hate when that happens to good blogs, even if I am happy for the blogger’s success.

    I miss Agathe so much!!! Her blog was the very first fashion blog I ever read. I just had to erase my post about her being missing because I was getting daily spam on it. I check up on Whimsical nerd once in a while she has a travel blog now about her adventures in Ukraine. Great post!!! xoxox

    Wow, this was a timely post; I literally just visited Angel’s Style Scrapbook before coming here, and she announced that she is quitting. 🙁 I also miss Spandex Pony, who quit recently as well.

    Style Bytes was one of the first style blogs I ever read, I do miss it. Btw, Ranna of Only Shallow is still blogging, although in Finnish, but her style is as lovely as always. She doesn’t update all that often, but it is better than not having her at all! This is her Finnish blog: http://helmiotsalla.blogspot.com/

    I loved Fashion Robot, Whimsical Nerd and Fops and Dandies!! I always think about WN and that I know she said she was going to the Ukraine. Wonder what she’s up to? I also really liked Capricious Club… oh the irony above!! I better let her know I”m back!!

    I miss style bytes. Yes, it was the first fashionblog to me as well.

    strawberry kitten is back with a new blog…
    it’s written only in german but she’s still posting her gorgeous outfits.
    It’s called Tattooed Unicorns
    (you can find it at my ‘german’-blogroll).

    Fops and Dandies was one of the first fashion blogs I ever discovered. It’s still one of my faves to date. I regret not actively commenting on her posts though ’cause she always seemed to have an insightful perspective on things along with awesome outfit posts.

  9. Veronika says:

    Only Shallow was one of my most favorite blogs of all time.

    Eyeliah, thanks for noticin’! Sorry I fall into the category of abandoned at some distant past date, but I plan to remedy that! And now that I am a college grad, I have nothing but boredom on my plate so I will definitely be poking my head around the blogging community in the months to come :~)
