The reasons are plenty, but the overriding one is time. I simply don't have it anymore. I have three quickly growing kids, a day job that's more brainwave consuming by the day, and a wife who appreciates that I not use the little free time and energy I have after all of that on people who aren't physically in our home. There's also the small matter of online conversations shifting to Twitter over the past few years, that make the relatively outdated mode of blogs and comments a bit anachronistic. If that $3 word throws you for a loop, sorry. It's my HBCU education speaking.
Of course, I'm not dropping off the cyber universe. I Tweet. A lot. Or at least far more than I should. You can find me there. You shoulda already done that, but if not, make up for lost time. I'm always on. And since this blog will still be live, I'll undoubtedly throw something up here from time to time
See what I did there?
I guess since this is a quasi goodbye, I should that everyone who made this blog what it was, because without an audience a blogger is just some dude who leaves his personal journal on a park bench. Ya'll made this what it was, and I thank you because while it did last, this blog opened some incredible doors and gave me some lifetime experiences I'll never forget. None of that happens without pagecounts, and ya'll delivered. Preciate that.
Thanks to The Uppity Negro, RiPPA, CJames, Spool32, VLatte, EBW, Marbles, Mwatuangi, Cinderfella Daeda Daedalus, Ciara, Shady Grady, rozb, Antonio, SKTheKid, Lavern, The Janitor, Just_Lena, JD, TwoNuse and everyone else who was here over the years. If I missed your name, sorry. Thanks anyway.
