"(O)nly 7.4 million out of the 133 million blogs the company tracks had been updated in the past 120 days"
So, I was thinking about all these idle blogs, not updated in years and what happens to them. Is the storage released for new material, with the old blog deleted? Is a warning sent to the owner? Do they stay around indefinitely? I cannot say for Wordpress or other blog host sites, but Blogger maintain old blogs forever (apparently):
How long does it take for an idle account to be deleted and released? The name that I would like to use only has one entry and hasn't been touched for a couple years and I didn't know if they get deleted from non-use. Thanks.
Accounts never expire; sometimes people return to them after a long absence. Google doesn't release contact details of blog owners but you can attempt to contact them if any details are available on their page.
