If I were the sort to use cliches, I might start this post by saying that I’m doing so with a heavy heart. But, I’m not one for cliches. And also, while there is a touch of sadness, my heart isn’t heavy.
I started this blog after closing another, similar one, both times wanting to write about the unexpectedness life can throw at us. And while my heart isn’t heavy to say goodbye right now, it’s also just not in the blogosphere at the moment.
I blogged for four and a half years. Blogging brought me a lot of surprises. I’ve said before that while my blog was intended to be a way for me to practice my craft of writing, I never realized just how much of a two-way street it could turn out to be.
I made a lot of friends through blogging. Some of them have become my nearest and dearest. And whether I’ve known you for a while or you just came aboard, whether you’ve regularly and actively engaged or just watched from afar, I bid you a fond farewell, no matter how long it turns out to be.
