Yes, people do delete their WordPress blogs.
And, why would one choose to delete their own WordPress blog?
Well, in all honesty, it is somewhat complicated; different bloggers will have their own specific reasons for wanting to delete their WordPress blogs (Today, I am going to discuss some of those reasons with you).
They Were Not In Their Right Frame Of Mind
People who are afflicted with a mental health condition known as, “Bipolar Disorder” tend to experience periods of depression followed by periods of an abnormally high elevated mood (Think of it as people experiencing a severe mood swing).
If the blogger with that particular mental health condition is in his or her phase of depression, he or she might delete their entire WordPress blog.
The God’s/Goddess’s truth is that it would not be the first time that the deletion of a blog was triggered by depression.
They Got Fed Up With WordPress
Factually speaking, some people do get fed up with WordPress.
If you are someone who blogs on WordPress, you will have an idea why someone would get fed up their WordPress blog.
And, if you are someone who does not blog, or never used WordPress for blogging, you might be clueless as to the reasons why anyone would become fed up with their WordPress blog.
Some people got fed up with their WordPress blogs because:
- They did not like the Block Editor (They refused to use it and they did not want to upgrade their package in order for them to use the Classic Editor plugin).
- They were constantly being censored.
- The Happiness Engineers did not fix their technical issue in a timely manner.
- They were tired of other people plagiarizing their blog posts.
- They thought that the price of the WordPress plans was too high.
It was as though they became extremely disappointed with WordPress and that the best course of action was to delete their blog.
Their Interests Changed
Some people are known to delete their blogs because their interests changed; for example, they were once interested in video games and now they are interested in philosophy (In a situation like that, a blogger would delete the blog that was based on video gaming and create a new one that is based on philosophy).
So, in this case, it has a lot to do with sharing their new passion with others and wiping their hands clean of their old interest.
They Were Unable To Manage More Than One Blog
There are lots of people who have more than one WordPress blog; some can handle the pressure of creating content for their numerous blogs, while others cannot.
Therefore, if someone is having a very hard time managing two WordPress blogs, they will delete one of them with the hopes of regaining their sanity.
As someone with a single blog on WordPress, I can openly admit to you that one blog can be quite a handful.
They Would Prefer To Delete Their Blog Than Leave It Abandoned
I am one of those bloggers who would prefer to delete their blog rather than leave it abandoned.
When I decided to leave Blogger and come over to WordPress, I deleted my blog on Blogger and created a new one on WordPress.
And, if I were to leave WordPress while I am alive, I would delete Renard’s World.
For the record, it is not mandatory for bloggers to delete those blogs of theirs that they are no longer interested in; it is merely a choice made by those who believe that an unattended blog should be deleted.
People do delete their WordPress blogs for various reasons (And, I hope that I have made some of those reasons clear).
No one really thinks of deleting their WordPress blog until they become dissatisfied with some aspect of the service or have chosen to close the proverbial curtains once and for all on the WordPress blog that they had spent very little or lots of time with.
