till you come to the end:
- The King, Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
Well folks, it's been real and it's been fun, but it hasn't been real fun.
This is my 375th and last post on May's Machete.
When I started this blog I was a frustrated artist who was swamped with grad school work and didn't have the time or energy for the more creative work that makes me feel fulfilled. Blogging made me feel like I wasn't a liar for still considering myself a writer and it gave me some focus for the little creative energy I did have. Since then, I've grown a lot as this blog has progressed and I enjoyed the ability to work out some of my life in stories for others.
But when I think about what value blogging gives to my life, I'm not coming up with enough answers that would keep me doing this. It's taking up an increasing amount of my now quite active creative energy and I'd rather spend that on projects I find more fulfilling. So that's what I'm going to be doing from now on.
Thanks to all of you who shared this blogging adventure with me. Thanks especially to those of you, Tony especially, who enjoyed my stuff enough to pass it on. Thank you to all of you who commented, subscribed and read the random shit I find compelling. Thank you for finding me worthwhile enough to make me a tiny part of your lives.
