Par For The Course

Business > Softly, as I Leave You

Softly, as I Leave You

Along with the post title, there are dozens of songs that say "good bye".
After much consideration and deliberation, I've decided to end my days (years) with the Eddie operation (mybloggers, formerly blogster).
Why? Few people post anymore. Few people read my posts. Many members have quit or are inactive.
So, I'm moving on. Where to? I'm think I like Atheist Nexus. We're all like-minded, but we don't write just about atheism. We don't have to worry about offending anyone. And I have inadvertently offended several "mybloggers-ites", all of which ignore me. It's no fun tip-toeing around bruised egos.
I may check in every now and then, here. I might even post something to "keep in touch". But, I'm not going to frequent this site every day like I usually do. If you comment to this post, I'll reply. Then....it's over.
My email address is given on my profile page. Plus, I'm found under my full name (Randall Smith) at Nexus.
I've met 6 mybloggers members in person and countless others via posts. It's been great getting to know all of you and becoming personal friends with many.
Thanks for the memories (another song). Adios.

I will miss you terribly! I regret that I have been inactive so much this year. I feel like I am losing a friend. Please don't abandon us altogether! Stop in once in a while.

That's nice of you to say. I'll miss you, too.

Come spring I hope you will keep us posted on the progress of the moved farmhouse. I will look for you on Facebook. Cheers.

Yes, I plan to check in every now and then with updated news. Things like: I BOUGHT A NEW TRUCK TODAY! 2013 Toyota Tacoma, red. Mid life crisis! But it hasn't been made yet. I'm picky on what I want. Cheers.

Boo! Dislike! But I understand. Sort of.
I wish you well and I Do hope you stop in often.

Yes, you've been one of my faithful readers. It's a tough decision to make, but something had to give. I'll drop by to see how your baby situation is coming along. I wish you all the best--and love.

Randy, I'm sorry to see you go. I always enjoyed your posts, in spite of your odd relapse of foot in mouth disease. I will miss you and hope you will pop in occasionally to let us know what's happening in your life.

You're spot on there! That's why I made enemies here. I'll miss you, too. See ya.

Thanks, I think. I am on Facebook, but seldom use it. Who knows what I'll do.

Will do, Kevin. I've enjoyed your "Aussie reports".
reply by solitaire on Dec 16, 2012 5:03 AM ()
Bye, Randy. Take care....
comment by marta on Dec 15, 2012 1:21 PM ()
You too, Martha. Who knows, I may eventually return.
reply by solitaire on Dec 16, 2012 5:03 AM ()
I'd say I'll check you out at nexus, but than again, I can't remember how long it's been since I posted here, so I suppose it's not likely to happen. Not too sure about your comments about offending people. I do it on fb and figure I'd be wasting my time preaching to the choir. But, to each his own...
comment by jjoohhnn on Dec 15, 2012 12:19 PM ()
See you around John. At least 3 mybloggers contributors ignore me on purpose. It hurts. But that's not the only reason I'm outa here. Best of luck.

Tough decision, but one that needs to be made. Best wishes, my friend.
reply by solitaire on Dec 16, 2012 5:00 AM ()
Take care. :)
comment by whereabouts on Dec 15, 2012 11:29 AM ()
Whoa. Thanks.

This is a blow to the gut. I wish you weren't leaving. I have enjoyed your blog very much. All I can hope is that you will stick your head back in once and awhile to update us on your continuing ups & downs with golf, gardening, your ex-, and the mixed bag that is known as retirement. Your friend, STEVE.
comment by steve on Dec 15, 2012 8:55 AM ()
After your return, I hung in here because of you. Unfortunately, your presence is not enough. I'll check in every now and then, if only to read your posts!
reply by solitaire on Dec 16, 2012 4:58 AM ()
I always read your posts. Sorry you feel the blog isn't helping. Stay in touch.
comment by tealstar on Dec 15, 2012 6:44 AM ()
Thanks. I'm a click away.
