This blog is not dead, it's just resting. (to coin a phrase from a certain well known British comedy show).
I still maintain the Japan Blog List but the number of submissions is down to a small handful every month. Very few people are starting new blogs, and existing blogs are slowing fading away.
One blogger who has NOT faded away is Diamond Geezer his recent post about starting his blog 12 years ago, and he is still going strong, posting something every single day, without fail.
I continue to post details of stuff I find interesting on Facebook but I also spend a lot of time on Twitter as JapanBlogList, so if want to continue to keep up Japanese stuff please catchup with me there.
