This is a big day for the world. It is the last anniversary of this blog. This was a blog about everything, whether it were heady or absurd. I wrote about various categories for example: music, sports, politics, sex, spirituality, videogames, giraffes, the Snorks, the crumb sitting on the coaster in front of me right now, people with the last name: McGee, snowmen, cars, and the mysteries of life, among many other various topics that happened to pop into my head at that moment. So park'er in that desk chair you got on clearance at Office Depot and suffer through the journey of a mind which straddles the border between genius and maddness.
Ah man, do I have to end this blog? I don't want to. I remembered how much fun it was, this past week composing and writing my blog posts, like old times. Then my dad commented about how he'll miss the blog, and Peter of JolVlogs commented about how he enjoyed reading my posts. I totally thought this blog was self serving. And then I started reminiscing over my old posts.
Here's why I decided to end this blog: first, I started a new job in 2011. Adjusting to the new routine, I didn't have a lot of energy for blogging or YouTubing, so they both kind of fell a way for a little bit. But the YouTube channel came first and I picked it back up. So, October 11 last year, as I went to write the anniversary post, I didn't have a whole lot to write about. When I began this blog, it sort of revolved around my life, so reviewing the year of this blog was like reviewing a year of my life. YouTube and Facebook have absorbed a lot of that, so it just wasn't the same. And I just didn't have the energy or drive to try to come up with something.
So, that post sort of hung in limbo for a while as an unsaved draft. I didn't want to post any of my new videos or any other blog post ideas I had until I finished the anniversary post. It was an annual tradition after all. Then, after getting fired up about "going the next level" with my YouTube channel this past summer, I decided it was too much to keep up with both blogging and YouTubing. So, after over a year of nothing, I decided that this was officially a dead blog. I had toyed with the idea of doing a final post for a while.
Then, I read on Facebook about the end of the Cort and Fatboy show. I decided it would be fitting to revive the blog to write about it, seeing how I've covered their story throughout this blog. And seeing how it ended a story which seemed to be tied into this blog, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to do my final post. Then I got the brilliant idea to tie it in with the 2012 end of the Mayan calendar business.
So here is that post. It's all over now, as per Mayan prophesy. Well, it's been fun.
You know what? Screw the Mayans! They're just a bunch of dead guys/gals who used to sacrifice humans to their gods! They don't control my destiny!!
This is a big day for the world. It is another day of this blog. This is a blog about everything, whether it be heady or absurd. I will continue write about various categories for example: music, sports, politics, sex, spirituality, videogames, giraffes, the Snorks, the crumb sitting on the coaster in front of me right now, people with the last name: McGee, snowmen, cars, and the mysteries of life, among many other various topics that happen to pop into my head for the moment. So park'er in that desk chair you got on clearance at Office Depot and suffer through the journey of a mind which straddles the border between genius and maddness....
the latter being rather prevalent...
And so, I've decided after all the hype, not to end this blog. I generally try not to be one of those people who makes a lot of hype and then changes their mind, but I guess for today I am. I don't know when the next blog post will be, but sometimes it's nice to be able to compose my thoughts/ feelings/ ideas into written form and include a fitting image. And so that's how this blog will remain; available for the next time I want to post. This blog will officially end when I have a new blog... more about that later.
So, I guess the Mayans were wrong about this blog. The sun will come out tomorrow, after all. See you next time. J-Dubb out.
