I think it’s a sign of the times when one of the most passionate, committed bloggers out there mentions that Blogging Just Isn’t Fun Anymore. In saying he’s Closing This Shit Down, another blogger says as he switches to Tumblr: WordPress is so 2006… Comment fatigue, post burn-out, eyes glazed over as the feedreader spits out another 55 updates…
Have you thought about quitting blogging? I have. It’s going to happen sooner or later, so when it does, I want to be prepared. This is about how I want to end it. The last post. The so-long-I’m-outta-here. Not like some, who simply slink off and let their blogs die.
When I quit blogging, I’ll do it My Way. Perhaps I’ll link back to this very post. So here’s a preview:
And now – the text is clear
And so I face – the final posting.
My friends – have left Facebook
Without a trace, of which I’m certain
I’ve blogged – a blog that’s full
I’ve followed each and every comment
No more. No more of this.
I’ve hit the high – way.
Trackbacks? I’ve had a few,
And linked to things – too dumb to mention
I’ve post’d ’bout – a lot of bull
About a life – of nervous tension.
I planned each post, of course
Each paragraph, each punctuation
But so… so bored to tears,
It’s time to go ‘way.
Yes, there were times – I posted shite
Just like that site, for those that arrrre white
But nonetheless, when I look back
I chewed it well, and spat it out,
I wrote it all, I had a ball,
Writing ev’ry day.
There’s more, but I simply can’t go on…
