I have experienced the mysterious loss of blogger buddies. They just stop blogging, don't answer emails, and seem to fallen off the edge or face of the earth. What can we do as bloggers, when our bloggy friends disappear? Call the police?
Liz Strauss, one of the most thoughtful and most successful community-building bloggers I know of, brought up the question in "Bloggy Question 32 Blogger Alert: where is she? what should you do?", and it struck a chord with me (see my recent post on Decent Marketing blog abandoned and full of spam).
