vanishing blogs

poet bloggers are abuzz this morning abt the disappearance of Eileen Tabios' blog.

as a former special collections librarian I wonder why some savvy person in that field doesn't make the blogs of poets a specialty. certainly there must be a way to preserve blogs for future study. it seems to me that the increase of poets who are blogging & the importance of what this is doing to the art will need to be examind. & if the documents themselves disappear how will this happen?
