Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already. It's nothing personal; it's not you, it's me. Sort of.
I've been here since 2001. I was 25 and had been wanting to do something like this for quite some time. I met a lot of amazing people, read a lot of interesting stories, discovered a ton of music and books and movies as a result of people's recommendations, and learned a lot about myself in the process.
And I guess somewhere along the line, I kinda lost sight of whatever it was I was trying to accomplish here. I'm not really sure if I ever knew what that was; all I know is, I've not been posting here lately, even when I've had stuff I want to say. And that defeats the purpose of having a blog in the first place.
And the fact that I've already said this a bunch of times and failed to act on it just reiterates that I need to move on and try something else.
I'm keeping the account - I'm a permanent member, after all - and I'll keep the archives up, if only because I like going through them every once in a while to see where I was. And I'll check in on the friends page now and then.
I'm not saying goodbye to my friends here; I'm just saying goodbye to the service. It's been a huge part of my life for the last 9 years.
If you're interested in keeping up with me, friend me on Facebook or follow along on my Tumblr page.
