Waking Sleeping Dogs

In addition to all the active chess blogs which I read, I keep a list of over 250 inactive blogs in Bloglines just in case they start posting again. It turns out that in the month of January, over 20 of these inactive blogs have published their first new post in a while. In most cases, the topic was the same ... the death of Bobby Fischer. Apparently, this historical event served as wake up call to many who had a chess blog in the past; though now I suspect, most of these blogs will roll over and go back to sleep again.
