Isn't it weird when someone you knew (or at least knew of) online suddenly goes quiet and you have no idea where they went? For example, I have a DA account (which I never use and am kind of embarrassed* of, tbh) and I was looking through my favorites today and, well... long story short, one of my favorite artists from a few years ago has totally dropped of the face of the interwebs . From what I can tell she hasn't done anything online under the name she was using for at least a year and a half. I've had this happen before with DA people, LJ friends, etc, and it always kind of leaves me with a strange, unsettled feeling. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

* To clarify, I'm not embarrassed because it's DA, but because it reminds me of my geeky HS days.

Maybe they're going through some sort of personal crisis?

Which is why it's unsettling!

It makes me hope nothing bad has happened to them D:

Speaking of which, you haven't posted on DA in a while, either, huh?

Are you ok? Heheh.

Did you contact her?

True. That's because I've lost my ability to draw. There actually are a lot of reasons for people to disappear from the internet. Once you're absent for a while it's hard to come back again.

Nah. I mean, I left a comment in her guestbook on her personal site, but I didn't actually know her (and she wouldn't know who the hell I was) so I would feel weird emailing and stuff. And, yeah, I know how hard it is to start back up once you've stopped. I write for this one blog occasionally, but have kind of lost my motivation to come up with new articles lately. Ah well...
