Death of a Blogger

If a blogger dies, how are his/her blogging friends to know of his/her death?

Forget science's immortality aspirations, as death is inevitable.

Often feared and maligned, death is simply the epitome of a life.

It's the only thing that sees no color, no creed, no age and no social class. As such, we all sooner or later get to meet it.

And what a relief that day will be!

As bloggers, we're not immune to the coffin treatment. While the death of technology is a reason our blogs would cease existing, we could always resort back to snail mail.

But how to remedy the death of the masterminds behind blogs?

Have you thought about your blog's future in case of your passing?

Do you have a post scheduled 5 years from now?

Got someone to keep your blog up and perpetuate your blogacy?

I hope you have someone to inform me of your death. I got no one. But you know I must have died if my blog's design looks the same for more than 6 months.

Now, let's discuss your blog's will, shall we?

  1. I saw an article about this on npr.com. It was talking about how to plan for your "digital afterlife". I have no plans on what to do if something happened to me. My family doesn't even know how to access my blog, twitter, or facebook account. Sigh.

  2. I'm pretty sure if something happened to me, someone would notify my best bloggy friends via Blackberr Messenger. Then they would have to relay the message. They know how to access my blog... My family doesn't.
