General Motors Blog Shuts Down

General Motors Smallblock Engine blog shuts down today after only a year. The blogger, Dave Hill is retiring, so the retirement of the blog makes sense. Especially as blogging is about a human voice, and Dave represented that voice for the blog.

I hope this means that GM can put more resources into its Fastlane blog, readers may remember my earlier critique of that GM Blog.

Interestingly its not the only high profile blog to become dormant, Maytag's SkyBox blog when Ka-Thunk in June when its principal blogger left for greener pastures. Another blogger attempted to fill Gary Pertersen's shoes but I have not seen a new post since June 14th.
