We keep losing good blogs.
Going through my sidebar and link list, trying to catch up on some folks, I found a few that have given up the gig. WunderKraut is the latest, joining Dawn Eden, Rachl Lukis (who may return), Still Stacy, the Boy Named Sous (such a great blog name), and WordGirl.*
* it's odd that the blogger of the name has been replaced by quite a fun PBS kid's show of the same name. I love having family friends with young kids, I get an excuse to enjoy this stuff with them.
It's oddly sad when a regular stop goes quiet. It's rarely because the blogger in question has passed or is too ill to continue (though sadly, that does happen). But there's a small grief there anyway. A beloved voice fades out of the chorus - and out in the internet, that voice is usually all we meet of that real person. It's just a little little window into a full life, but it shines such a light.
It's not a bad thing - it probably means that WK and family are busier and happier than ever, and he's devoting more time to more fulfilling pursuits than this. I'm hopeful for him, and selfishly, a little sad for me.
Be well, my brother. And the rest of you wonderful fake folks who live in the magic box - don't go 'way just yet.
