The end of Metblogs

Everything’s coming to a rapid end here; metblogs is probably closing next week, and the entire site will be taken offline. That means this blog will vanish into the black hole of internet history. Take a last look around, before the doors close.

I’ve contacted the metblogs admins about keeping an archive of the site online, but have so far had no response. If anything here is particularly important to you, please take your own copy of it. You can also email me via daniel at ohuiginn dot net, and I’ll try to provide copies from my own backup.

I don’t think there’s sufficient interest in this blog to keep it running outside of metblogs; if I’m wrong, please contact me and we can move the blog to another site. Otherwise, it’s time to start saying your goodbyes :(

    Hey Dan- Not sure who you contacted, I haven’t heard from you but you should look at the authors forums. The sites aren’t going down now.

    Is there a way to export the site contents to another blog (say wordpress)? Hoping that Berlin Metblogs will continue.

    @sean: I sent an email to you and jason, but I can entirely understand it getting lost in the chaos of the announcement. Anyway, thanks for dropping by, and good news about the site staying up.

    @rezwan: there might be an export option, but if so only administrators have access to it. i.e. I don’t have access, but I’ll try to find somebody who does.
