The end.

As you can see from the post dates, I lapsed in posting but with good reason. I've given up on writing. I sort of write for my job but I have committed to stop writing digitally in my personal life. But, I am writing right now. Well, it's a bit of a sign off.

Why am putting my writing to a halt?

Well, I write mostly about myself and I am sick of reading about others and their lives and since I like to practice what I preach, I am going to stop. This goes for blogging, needless facebook updates and twitter. I will still post stupid videos and retweet but I won't be updating the masses about my personal life.

I've realized that social media has made me so passive and uncaring. I really don't care about others and their's sad but true. I don't care if you have a headache or where you are going Friday or you exact location at that very minute. I am not your stalker. I also don't care if you need to write an 8 paragraph blog about how badly your life sucks (something I've been known to do and it's pathetic). So if I don't care, I am sure there are many others who do not care about my activities and with good reason. They aren't that exciting and if you do you care which you shouldn't, you could always ask me via a more personal means.

Participation in social media is an act in self indulgence and I don't want to do it anymore. I'd rather not indulge in myself.

I am also not sure why I wrote this since I know no one will read it. I guess it was to vocalize it. So there, I said it...

The end.....for now.

Maybe I write creatively in the future but I won't be posting it.

Although I am slightly offended that you refer to a practice I engage in on a relatively regular basis as "pathetic," I still want you to know that I have been a subscriber to your blog for over a year. And I read every post.

Thus, I will miss you.

I think in today's fast-paced age, blogging is a good way for friends to stay up-to-date when contacting you in other ways is inconvenient. That doesn't excuse folks for never using more personal forms of communication, but it does allow your life to be accessible to those friends who care to keep up.

I like to blog, and I know a lot of people read mine (and, more importantly, want to read it). I know I liked reading yours. And for that reason, I will miss reading the thoughts of a great writer and the personal anecdotes of a great friend.
