Roon is a blogging website. Acquired by Ghost, Roon was supposed to have shut down on December 31, 2014, but stayed online until March 12, 2015.

Shutdown notice


"The hosted platform will be closing its doors on December 31st, 2014. We will be providing full data exports as well as seamless migration options for all of Roon’s 100,000+ users to Ghost. Anyone who has paid for a premium account will receive 12 months of Ghost(Pro) for free. We’re also going to extend a 3 month free trial to any other Roon users who would like to give Ghost(Pro) a try."

Site structure

Every user has a blog and a user profile. Each blog has a sitemap, and blogs can be sequentially discovered through the API.[1] Note that blog names are not the same as user profile names, as shown below.

There should be ~130000 blogs to archive.
