    I have tried many possibilities, but I can’t get to the blogs. Is it just me, or is something happened to the blogs?

    I did close the blogs because the only use they've gotten in the past year is by spammers. Did you want to use them or need to access something? I can bring them back.

    Not really.
    But if one wanted to write a bit about the gear one is using etc., the “about me page” is very poorly suited to this kind of information. This could be written in the blog, but I agree that only very few read the blogs, and it is properly best they disappear.

    I don't think the blogs were being read very much. I agree that the About Me is not ideal, but it's enough for a short entry, and there are so many blogging platforms out there which make it easy to take the next step. I use Tumblr and Google+.

    If anyone needs to get info which was on their blog, let me know and I'll turn the blogs back on. It's just that no one seemed to be using them, yet we had to keep monitoring them for spam.
