Many blogs fade away through neglect, their writers going about life possibly even oblivious to the fact they once blogged. Some more officially cease publication for whatever reason. Sometimes there is a farewell post, other times a website is simply deleted without a word.
But I wonder how many of us will bow out from blogging in the way the late Derek K. Miller, who recently died as a result of illness, did. Knowing the end was near, as Miller did, how many would have the fortitude to write a final post that was as affecting, and moving, as his?
