Two Blogs Go Black

Two giants of the Catholic blogosphere, Amy Welborn and Dawn Eden, have decided to bring their blogs to an end. I’ll let them explain why. I’m sure they had good reasons, but I will miss both of them.

Third-rate hacks like me are still available, however. 🙂

Dawn announced she was going on a permanent blogging vacation almost a month ago, but I kept checking back every so often in the forlorn hope that perhaps she had reconsidered her decision. No such luck.

As for Amy, I hadn’t checked on her blog in a while, and was surprised to find during a quick visit to her site that she had decided to call it quits.

We’ll miss you, ladies. Be well, and God bless you both. Thank you for all you have done to make the internet a saner, more humane, more Christlike place.

Pax vobiscum.

  1. I would assumed Welborn is "done" because her life has (possibly) become a bit to painful to openly discuss, with the death of her husband and all that. I could be way off on that, though.
