Alright, so I know that most of you are aware that my blog disappeared last weekend. It was deleted, as well as my Twitter account. Many of you were worried and some of you were very kind enough to reach out to me and to ask how I was, to make sure I was alright. I'm ok. I'm not great, but I'm ok. I deleted my blog in a very rash decision to distance myself from it for personal reasons I don't want to really get into, but it ate at me because it felt so...abrupt and I didn't want to go out like that.
Here's the thing...I don't know if I want to do this anymore.
I've had some really alarming personal events take place over the past week, and I'm not sure when things are going to normalize for me...and until they do...I just can't do this. I love blogging and I love this blogging community, but I have other things that are, at the moment (and really, in every moment) just more important.
Still, leaving as I did, without a trace...just gone...felt wrong too.
I want to personally thank a few bloggers who truly showed their true colors (in the best way) to me this week, so Josh, Kevin, Mario, Britt, Stephanie, Joel, Mariah and Shane; thank you for caring and asking me how I was doing.
And Sati, I want to especially thank you. Your email was so sincere and really touched me, and your RF piece was very sweet. It is because of you that I decide to boot this back up and address this.
So, what's happening? Well, I'm leaving you for now, but I wanted to leave you properly and so I had worked up a special collection of posts about a very special movie to me, and it felt a shame to just not post it...and it also felt like the perfect way to say goodbye to you all. So, immediately after this is posted, those posts will go live. (for a link to the whole series of posts, click here) After that, I'll bid you adieu. I'm going off the grid for a while. I don't know if I'll come back, or to what extent I will. I will leave the blog alive and I hope you all keep me on your blog rolls for if and when I post something (most likely a Fisti Awards or something like that), but this is my somewhat farewell to the blogging world.
Know that I love you all, and I will miss you very much.
