What will happen to your blog when you die?
The blog belongs to you. It has become a part of your life. How happy one could be if they could blog even after death from heaven (or hell).
RULE: First give your opinion and then read what others have written.
My views (some of them taken from a post on a popular blog related to blogging have been penned down as the first reply.
Reason: removed link
If your blog is hosted on a free platform like wordpress or blogger, then your blog remains for ever till Goggle shuts down itself. In other cases your blog will die along with you.
And this is what I read on another blog ( Daily Blogs Tips) regarding the same:
We need to be prepared for it. All our important passwords that are used to access our blog and accounts on other sites should be given to our family members. We need to make sure that someone is going to announce our death on our blog after we die. The blog may later be sold or archived.
What do you mean by posting this same reply as a comment on my post at my blog?
Well, if u go thru my blog, u'll see under the title tht my blog is on "'life' n other popular four letter words"..
if I'm dead, my blog'll probably be on "'death' n other unpopular five letter words"
You can now leave your email addresses, blog login details, infact all online logins etc to your family. If they are mentioned in a will, then your family will be given the access by the hosting companies. Or you can leave a set of passwords to your family. there are even online srvices which manage your passwords and financial data for you and they pass it on to your family after you've passed on.
This post should help... http://www.securitynewsdaily.com/digital-afterlife-how-to-safeguard-online-accounts-after-death-0707/
Its not my post. Just something I found online.
My blog would probably die out eventually, since I have taken paid hosting services. When bills don't get paid, services get stopped. Naturally.
Hope that that article would help those who have never though about the death of their blog.
ho ho! never thought about it! i think i don't want anyone else to get their hands on the steering wheel of my blog even if i blog. So it will be like this = My blog dies with me.
Don't you want people to remember you through your blog after your death?
Hmm... good point. So on second thought, I am going to make a statement on my will that the person i trust the most on earth will get to know my password and he or she will change it to a password which even he/she wont be able to remember. Something like..]
so that no one gets to the steering wheel of my blog after I die, and It lives on too!
thats a good question!! i have been thinking about it!!! if i die someday let my blog live forever!!! hope there would be some who would remember me through my blog!!
Your faithful readers will surely remember your blog and will quote them often in their own blogs.
after I die,my blog will pine and die within a span of 1month from the date of my expiry. It will then haunt the japanese porn sites for sometime,before its lead to the light by the evangalist site from Utah. Then it will be reborn as ndtv website.
Nothing will happen to my blog. I don't go anywhere without my laptop. So, I'll just continue blogging from hell. Yep, that's where I'm going. I don't wanna be stuck with a whole bunch on virginal holier-than-thou chicks. I prefer the ones that are easy. It will be a lot of fun. Like on a nude beach. Cos I hear its hot as hell in hell. I'm sure the girls will just throw away their clothes. ahhh, I'm gonna have a helluva lotta fun!
You must be a tech geek to take your laptop with you even to hell.
naah man, not a tech geek. Well, not anymore.
Am just a regular internet addict.
Remember the famous song from Lata Mangeshkar?
Rahein na rahein hum, mahka karenge banke kali?
My blog will remind of me to the people. I have thought of it and I will publish a book for some of my selected posts. This is how my blog and I'll leave even after I die:)
I think the blog will remain and the homepage will show the post you wrote last. It is similar to what happens to your FB account. A close friend of mine passed away recently and now his Facebook wall is full of wishes and mournings by people...
What about me? I don't display the date along with the posts and I will be disbaling the archives gadget too in a few days. Never mind! I am not going to diie right now.
@ Adhokshaj Bellurkar Can you give taht facebook Profile URL. Interested in seeing it.
Man, my blog is named after me (Hemal Shah's Indianomics), so its well and should be active but no one can steer it forward. I am sure, even my family or the illfated girl i will mary may not have the same mentality as I have and hence, would be unfair to my readers. So it will die with me... but remain there as a memorial to my presense on this earth.
I have big dreams regarding my blog.
If I can have my way my blog will become a big multi-author blog like shoutmeloud and it will be taken forward by other authors. By that time my children will be the owners. :)
So, you have already decided what your children will be doing after they grow up!
In your next life, you may write again.
Provided you remember your login details.
I'd rather be too rich and famous to write anything. I'm already lazy, so its 1 down, 2 to go.
Good and Thoughtful question..:)
I blog so that I can cherish and reminisce later
Even after my death..my works would be eternal..it is like our footprints..:)
My blog will become a ghost and haunt all of them who made spam comments in it... Yes it is a caution.. and a warning.. serious!
If you wanna threaten people, why not threaten that you will haunt all those who don't visit your blog regularly? Isn't that better? You might generate billions of hits of all those who will fear your ghostly appearances.
