SMPS Chapter Blogs -- initiatives that haven't progressed (yet)

In my continuing search for relevant construction marketing blogs, I Googled "SMPS (Society for Marketing Professional Services) blogs" and other keyword variations, and discovered what appear to have been a few attempts to set up blogs -- though they haven't gone very far.

Look at this entry for SMPS Seattle, for example, "Sharing the Umbrella, " -- it hasn't been updated in more than a year. Tracking back, you can see this archived entry for a meeting to discuss the potential of blogging. See here:

SMPS Georgia has an empty blog page, here:

The last entry at SMPS South Florida Blogs dates back to 2005! See:

What can I make of these rather limited results? I tentatively conclude that a few people have tried to set up blogs but found they weren't going anywhere (in their market area), and dropped the idea. I will be sending some emails to see what really happened.

Logically, construction industry marketing blogs should correlate with the groups committed to regional construction marketing, but clearly this hasn't happened yet.
