There are lots and lots of scary movies.
How many? Well if you've got a lot of time, there are a lot of old posts here about scary movies.
You go ahead, I'm too scared to read them.

Daily blogs are fun and interesting, but very difficult to keep up with forever.
This blog posted a daily number review with lots of interesting math facts behind each number for several years.

Schoolovision 2012


Blogs are so easy to make, sometimes people start a new blog every year, instead of using an archive.
Even though this individual blog is technically abandoned, the project is still going on. They set up a new website every year, schoolovision 2013, schoolovision 2014, etc.
These schools record a song together and have a contest over who is the best in Europe.

StinkyLulu


Running over 10 years with over 1,000 posts, and almost daily posts for a few years, it's tough to keep a blog going forever.
Looks like this one tried to jump over to another blog, but then the posts sadly ended.

Kyle Phillips's Italian Wine Review (IWR)


Lots of really great info on vineyards in Italy, and over 400 posts.
Never can tell why they stopped posting. Did they run out of wine? Or just got bored with the site?
