Hey guys, well I have been contemplating this for quite some time, and kept putting it off, I have even spoken in depth to Milan and Someone Living about it and now have finally come to a decision.
I am retiring from the blog, trust me it has not been an easy decision to make and the amount of people I have spoken to about this is incredible.
Why now? well after a year and a bit I feel the blog has finally found a purpose and I ain't part of it anymore, the mayhem and randomness has gone, and I dunno, thats what I enjoyed, and I am not enjoying it anymore. I have been blogging for a long time now, since 2005, and I knew eventually this day would come, every blog finds its direction, and I am thrilled to have been able to help, in a small way, guide us down to this path. Now though I find the path taken is somewhere I don't want to pursue.
I had every intention as discussed with SL that the party in my house was going to be my retirement party, and I would announce it during the night. Something stopped me and has continued to stop me for the past few weeks, that something is the fact that I don't want to lose the friends I have met through being here the past year and a bit, (you guys know who you are).
I sincerely hope that people will keep in touch with me, even though I may not be here, you know where my blog is, you all know where I live and the majority of you have my phone number, did I tell you I got an iPhone.
When SL asked me to join up here, along with the few remaining original people, I was honoured but was also petrified of what I should be doing, over the year I am thrilled to realise I can write on blogs and people seemed to enjoy what I was writing, you have no idea how happy that made me feel, so happy that my photoblog has taken a different direction now and has plenty of written stuff aswell as photos, you guys had that affect on me and I am forever grateful.
This post really has been the hardest post I have ever written, and as I type I am nearly in tears, yes believe it or not I do have serious emotions, but I feel it has to be done.
Please don't close the door fully on me and who knows maybe some day you can welcome me back to the fold.
I seriously love you guys!
