The End Is Near; Goodbye Blogosphere

Blog ApocalypseWhat would you write if this was your last blog post ever? In a meme started by Urban Monk, I’m following Starbucker’s lead within my sphere of reading and joining in on the fun. Here is the call:

The blogosphere is ending. No more blogs. Blog apocalypse. The internet is still working, the world is fine. But you can’t write anymore. Write your last post. Make it a good one. What is the reason you blog? What is the last gem of knowledge you want to leave? What do you want to be remembered for? Who are you? What is the meaning of life? Haha…well not exactly but you get the point. Pour your heart into it.

This should be fun. Here goes:

It has been fun. It has been good. Has it been really good?

Yes, I’d say it has. I started Gitr’s WoW Blog on Blogger back in 2005 with no hopes or aspirations of anything cool, other than journaling my journey with my computer character through my newest game. Little did I know that I would start getting traffic from Google, getting a domain, and becoming known as Gitr around the world.

I have learned about CSS code, WordPress, affiliates, copyediting for online content, and forged new friendships both in-game and in real life (YAY SOBCon07!). I have written over 600 posts to date and check my site stats hourly during the work day. Now it is all over. The blogosphere is collapsing.

Never fear. I’ll still be here. My wife and I will survive and go on to new things of my geeky taste. I’ll find something to do.

I leave you with this little thought.

Find something that you enjoy. Plant that seed and let it grow. Watch it blossom and branch out into something that you care about and that others come to sit under its shady canopy. Then give those seeds to others to plant and have their own refuges to let others come to. Pass the love. Share the joy.
