Sista inlägget – varför sluta blogga? : En studie av bloggare som avslutat sina bloggar

by Lindholm, Pär

Abstract (Summary)


By changing focus from the active blogger to the ex-blogger this study focuses on a part of the blogosphere that is generally overlooked, why bloggers stop blogging. 30 terminated blogs where studied and the ex-bloggers where contacted. Six main reasons why a blog is terminated was found: Changed life situation, The blog effecting private life, The blog effecting the professional life, Done with testing to blog, Blogging about an event, Done with the blog – the logical termination. Outside the main focus of the study  it was also evident that most bloggers terminate a blog to put focus of one of their other blogs or start a new one. Thus it seems wrong to equal one blogger to one blog. A theory is presented that classifies a blog as something that will be ended and a blogger that goes from blog to blog is named a chain blogger.
