John Murney's Blog Goes POOF!!

Okay. John Murney's Blog has disappeared from the blogosphere this evening. What the heck happened? Did he have a hissy fit? Last time he did that he closed the comments, but this time his blog is no more. Maybe there's something wrong with the blogosphere tonight.

Ya, noticed that as well. Im pretty pissed here. I left Sask a week ago for Vancouver Island to get away from the white stuff. Guess what, snow yesterday and more tonight. I give up, I think I will go somewhere within close proximity to the equator. Should be free of snow there, but the white stuff follows me wherever I go.

When something like this happens, I always assume technical mishap, first.

Saskboy, like many bloggers, John has revealed a certain temperament over the many months he has operated his blog, both through the topics he chooses to post, the questions he poses and his discussions in the comments. My observations of his reaction to things leads me to another conclusion.

RC, you are still better off out on the coast. At least you're not waking up to -26 C with a windchill of -30 C.

Murney may have abandoned his blog and started a new one:
His name doesn't appear anywhere on the blog, but it does if you do a google search.

Thank God someone posted about this. Louise's observations are astute, but I hope she's wrong! I wasn't seeing any of the signs prior to yesterday. -AW

John, are you "Little Birdie"? If you are reading this, I want to thank you for helping me get eight whole comments, even if two of them were my own!!! (Well, three of them, now. LOL!!) You should also note that you do have a fan base.

Anonymous @ 7:30 please use a name, even if you only sign your initials at the bottom of your comments like AW has done. Too many anonymice make it difficult to exchange points of view.

AW, I think the lack of "any signs" is one of John's trademarks. He sometimes responds to situations or comments with what I could consider to be the use of rather extreme language and unexpected suddeness.

A warning that he was shutting down his blog might have been appropriate or a message directing folks from the old blog to the new blog, if that is what has happened. Just MNSHO.

I haven't heard from him. I wonder if he's spending more time with his family right now.

Hi Louise,

I will be back in the new year with a new blog, and a new mission. I need a break from blogging. To boot, my old blog had become stale and repetitive. thank you everyone for your patronage and participation on my blog. I will give you plenty of warning when my new blog gets going.
