Well, okay. Not quite the ending I had envisioned, but what can you do?
I’m a little disappointed that not many people seemed to care I’m leaving. I guess I just thought we were an idealistic, huge group of great friends who shared much more than a common blogging system.
So… I guess I’m just leaving like that. I don’t think there’s much I’m willing to put into social media platforms right now. In a while, I might find a new way to share that doesn’t take too much commitment.
I don’t want to be bound to something, like I have to post or be active to be remembered by friends/to be able to share and communicate with other people.
I don’t think I’m making much sense right now, but I’m rushing because I should have finished this draft a long time ago.
Sorry for my lack of commitment recently.
I’m not trying to start anything- I’m really not. I’m just wondering whether anyone else will actually care that I’m leaving. When people quit in this community, I feel like a whole bunch of people jump in to say how much they’re going to miss whoever it is. When people reach a certain amount of followers, they write a hyper, excited post with many thanks and “I love you”s. When there’s a raffle, people jump reblog, like, comment.
I don’t even know anymore, though. I thought we were more of a community. But I suppose it’s harder online than in real life. We’ve been through a lot, though- there’s no denying that. “Drama,” support, and so much more. We were quick to make moves- whether it be liking or accusing. But in the end…. I felt like we were all happy to call each other friends. More than happy- proud. WordPress was pretty huge for me a year ago. I told my friends about it, I laughed at your posts, and I spent a lot of time reading.
I won’t deny that any of this happened. But maybe it’s time to remember and move on. I do wish more of my friends here could have reached out to me when I was preparing to quit, but…
It’s okay though. I haven’t been going on the reader and interacting with you guys recently. I shouldn’t expect much in return just because I’m permanently leaving. I know it’s summer and I shouldn’t be so busy…
I should have posted this a long time ago, but I just came back from a three week camp.
Anyways, thank you so, so much to those who commented on my “Quitting?” post. Your comments were genuine and sweet, and really did help me. I appreciate it a lot. Thank you, Boltie, Anna, and Amethyst. I am so glad you commented; it made a big difference. We should definitely keep in touch.
I’m sorry, guys. I’m done with sugar-coated words, empty promises, useless posts, and hanging from a thin thread. It’s not fair to the people who actually take their own time to read what I post.
If I’m not going to post, I should really just end it and not leave people hanging. So it’s official then; it’s over.
