Sayonara ('Til We Meet Again)

I wanna keep this brief, but that's never been my strong suit.

If you've been following for awhile, you probably know I've been deeply conflicted for the better part of two years about continuing this blog. In reviewing the past year and a half of entries, I realized something - I really don't have anything I want to say here anymore. This isn't an indictment of this blog, or my audience, or even blogging itself. It's just that after over 12 years of doing this sort of thing (7 of them here), my interests have drifted in different directions.

To be clear, I'm not deleting this blog. It will stay up as long as Google sees fit. I'm pretty proud of it as a body of work, and I'd say well over half of it is what I wanted it to be. But I don't have any plans right now to update it further. Maybe that will change in a few months. Maybe that will change in a couple of years. I'm leaving that option open. Trust me, you'll be the first to know.

Also, I am not going away. You can still find me in the following places:

Twitter, for the occasional "wisdom" you have found here.

The Captain Satellite Tumblr and Captain Satellite Facebook, for the continuing adventures in the Owariverse.

My Tumblr and DeviantArt pages, though I am not actively posting on either at this time. Hopefully, that will be changing in the months ahead.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has read, commented on, or just visited this blog. You have made it all worthwhile. I will still be lurking in the corner, occasionally messing around with the sidebar links or other such business. But for now at least, I am signing off here.
