A long and drawn out farewell. (oh look, a title which pertains to my post!)

Hello there. It's been a while, hasn't it? 

Now, you know how I said how dedicated I felt to you, blog, and how I would stay with you forever? Just kidding, I never said that. But I can't help but feel bad about how sporadic my posting's been. I think that there's a reason for this.

This is exactly my 50th post. Blog, I need a break. I can genuinely say that it's not you, it's me. You have served me perfectly for the last year, helping me hone my writing skills, learn a little bit more about catering my writing to an audience. I still haven't learned to write on a schedule, I must admit. That's too bad, I guess. But still, I've learned.

Problem is, I've grown. My obsession with crazy socks has waned and been replaced by other strange obsessions. My rabbit has gotten fat. 

Not all of the ways I've changed are for the better. I care less about other people than I used to. Somehow my religious beliefs are even more whacked out than they were when I wrote my first post. I think I've gotten stupider. 

What am I saying, blog? I have to move on. I will probably start a new blog in the future. If it makes you feel better, I'm not leaving you for a tumblr. Thanks for everything. 
P.S.  If you need any empowering breakup songs, just let me know. :)

. . .My anthropomorphizing abilities have just outdone themselves. 

Yeah, I'm leaving. I'm sorry it's so sudden, I just don't feel as if I have the energy to write any entertaining posts, at least not ones that fit with the theme of this blog.(Not that I know if anybody cares.)

This isn't because of any sudden crisis or anything, I'm just done. 

Coincidentally, this is my 50th post, so at least I've hit a minor landmark. If I start another blog, I will certainly link to it here. 

Thank you so much to all of my lovely followers. I'd single people out but that would feel too sappy, so I just want to thank each and every one of you. I've read and thought about about all of your comments, even if I suck at replying, and they have never failed to brighten my day. I'll still be reading your blogs, and I'll try to keep commenting on stuff. I feel like I've made a bunch of dysfunctional friendships through comments sections. 

Keep being awesome, and when you're a best-selling author I expect, at the very least, a curt nod of recognition as I accost you, begging for an autograph. 

<3 Gabi (every part of me)

  1. D'awwwwww.

    But your blog makes my face look like :D

    We understand.

  2. Ohhhhhh...

    I'm with Eeshie. I see where you're coming from though, it can get hard to keep a blog going. Especially with posting and commenting regularly.

    It's been awesome reading your posts because they're so whacked out and amusing. You've got a blog like no one elses ;).

    And definitely link your new blog here when you start one so's I can follow it. Capiche? Me gusta.

  3. GOODBYE!!! I love your blog. I haven't always been a very good commenter, because I suffered so much blogging turbulence with the Archives as well. But I wish you luck with life stuff! Pack warm clothes and bring lots of books.

    I do agree with Ash, though. If you're going to start a new blog, let us know, huh?

  4. Awww... I'll miss your blog.
    I'll be stalking it and waiting for a new one, though. ^_^

  5. Awwwwh! I love this blog! It's so different and funny! :)
    LINK US PLEASE! When you start your new blog, I want to read it! :)

  6. Somehow even your farewells make me smile!

    Also schedules are overrated. So is Tumblr. So are a lot of things.

  7. Let us know what that new blog is. We'll be waiting for it. And congrats on 50! That's no minor feat in the blogging world.

  8. First Nerd Archives and now you?! Every Blog I look at ends within a few months!
    Best of luck with all of your future writing and non-writing endeavors. You will be missed. At least by me. I can't speak for the rest of the blogging world.


You should write something in that little box there.
