Over five years ago I took over a blog inside the Orble Community. I have also created a few others. I wrote in Writtenlife at least every 60 days to keep it active; I have accumulated 85 posts in total.
One day it simply went offline. I tried everything to get in contact with the community’s administration team and nothing worked. I posted inside my other Blogs (http://www.orble.com/orble-where-is-my-blog/) to try to get them to contact me but it seems they are running on automatic.
I find it very disrespectful. They let the domain name lapse and I couldn’t get it anywhere either because it is still registered to them or because someone else got it.
I decided to move everything across to WordPress. It has been a time consuming job, copying the text, finding the images (or as close as I could) inside my old files, noting how many votes I had in Orble, the date and time they were published. I wanted to keep as close as I could from the original for historical data.
But finally here it is! What a sense of achievement! This is the new blog, ready to receive my new writing thoughts.
Here is the final statistics of the Orble Site:
149 Posts + 81 Comments + 10,735 Votes

yes, I had http://www.realcrash.com on Orble since 2006. All their blogs went down.. short of visiting their office in Sydney, Australia, that is all I know… if they still have an office.
any comments on Orble??

I am also unable to find information on orble . I wrote about once a month for about 5 years just to keep it active.
