I’ve been blogging for 17 years. Now that’s a long time. It spans longer than some actual professional writers’ entire career. It was initially intended as an outlet for me to rant about my shitty work life, and eventually it grew into some sort of obsession to just dump anything that came across my mind. I went crazy with it, with imaginations and crazy thoughts that no one would deign to pay attention to.
It grew quite popular in its prime. Got up to 10k hits a day. I wrote about the birth of my child, who’s now going 15. I wrote about my family, my friends, and the shenanigans we did. Oh I lost so many friends because of this blog, but made much more better ones with it. I was offered ads service, guest blogging opportunities, etc – I turned all of them down – for this, was never meant to be anything more than a space for my thoughts to be readable by strangers. This blog has been such a big part of my life, and I am quite fond of it.
But times have changed now. I find myself having less angst to vent, and less frustration to fuel my madcap content. Suddenly my life becomes much more bearable. I find myself mellowed down, and much calmer in thoughts and less homicidal. I’ve been doing stuff that I wouldn’t thought I’d be doing. I have met my end goal in life, and I have surpassed my parents by many folds at both being a person and a parent. I am like a dog that has caught up with the car it was chasing and now doesn’t know what else to do.
With this new state of mind, I no longer get the thrill to maintain this blog any longer, as I have moved on to enjoy other things. So this will be my last post in this blog and I will never write another again. I will still retain the site for people to rummage through my past thoughts, until however long the server is able to keep it. Feel free to share any of its content, or save/print it, I don’t give a fuck.
It has been a pleasure of mine to be able to write for all these years, and I wish all of you well in life. Logging off.
