Yaplog is Closing

Popular Japanese blog platform yaplog will be shutting down at the end of January 2020. This is notable for lolita, because Japanese brands like Angelic Pretty have been posting information about their items to shop yaplog blogs for over a decade. These blogs often can be used to find information about older items, and are one of the sources used for resources like lolibrary.
Yaplog is also home to personal blogs for tons of Japanese lolita, and many "iconic" images of Japanese lolita were lifted from these blogs.

Make sure you backup your own yaplog (if you have one) before the service ends Friday, January 31, 2020, 12:00
