City-Data: Nanticoke is a nifty site that provides demographic information about various localities. It also provides discussion forums for people who want to talk about a particular city, which is especially useful for former residents who want to keep in touch with how things are going at the place they still think of as home. Nanticoke's entry on City-Data can be found here:

Yes, I think I have some old Nanticoke postcards.

Is this your real blog? I was clicking through your list and found dead ones.

My main blog is actually here:
Another Monkey

I haven't checked A Blog of Nanticoke for dead links for a while. I'll go see what I can see. I hate dead links...they always mean that a site that I once visited and found useful is now gone.

Hmmm, I'm not seeing any dead sites or links here, except for a link to a 1975-era NBC logo that's been removed and a link to one of my posts that was glitching. Or do you mean the list on NEPA Blogs? I just checked that a few months ago and thought I had it updated! I'll check it again sometime.

Ohhh, I see what you mean, my very impressive list of blogs. Yeah, that.

Three of those are "repost" blogs intended to generate targeted traffic for the ads. Since I post on all sorts of topics on Another Monkey my ads tend to be a bit unfocused. I figured by reposting my posts on computers, gardening, and astronomy I could generate specific traffic and get better-targeted ads. Unfortunately I haven't reposted anything to them in a while.

The Virtual Refrigerator is my nephews' artwork. I haven't scanned any of that in a while.

Angry Political Blog was an exercise in anger. I didn't like how it made me feel.

The Magic of Everyday Life is a repost site for my feel-good posts. I haven't gotten around to posting anything there yet.

Til August is truly dead. Griffon's Peak is a blog for a store that's closed. Beyond the Needle is a blog for a store that eventually got its own website.

NEPA Blogs and A Blog of Nanticoke still see regular activity, and Another Monkey gets updated at least once a day!
