Thanks to those who have sent in responses to this post. I’ll continue accepting comments or email (to waltcrawford at gmail dot com) through September 15, 2010.
Blogs don’t have to be “living.”
When I say there has to have been at least one post before June 1, 2010, I don’t mean there have to be any posts during 2010. If a dead liblog is still visible–that is, if its URL still works and leads me to posts–it’s good as a candidate. It would fall into “group 4″ of the study: Liblogs that appear to be either dead or deeply moribund, having had no new posts since May 31, 2009.
I hope this won’t result in hundreds of additional candidates, but if it does, so be it.
