Tagged: Blog Apocalypse


Whoa. Sophisticated Writer tagged me for probably the scariest meme that’s ever been invented. Even worse, the meme originator, Urban Monk, is going to donate up to $500 to charity for each link back to him.

Here’s the concept:

Bloggers: The blogosphere is coming to an end.

You have one last post. What is it going to be?

What is the final summary of your blog?

What is the one last gem that you want to leave with your readers?

I’ve been having a hard time with this one. Yeah, there needs to be a TON of thanks to all you guys for all your support, especially you guys with the pom-poms and strong belief that I’ll find myself a major publisher who’ll help get Trevor the attention he craves.

However, I don’t like endings. And I’m the woman who created Trevor Wolff, a rebel sort. I’m also the woman who created Kerri Voss, the woman who manages to move across the country and find a way to finance an art school education. Add in Mitchell Voss, whose dedication to his dream had him working his rear off.

Put all that together and I think my final post would be something along the lines of a Trevorish, saucy wink and the words, “Meet you over at West of Mars.”

Just because blogs are ending doesn’t mean the fun has to. I’m not done yet.

(note: I’m not tagging anyone directly ’cause this is a scary concept and no one needs this kind of stress and panic. So I’m handing down the challenge to all of you: Are you tough enough to face this? If so, make sure you tell me so I can come visit.)

And because the voting’s not closed yet…
And if you’ve missed it somehow, Just a reminder… go vote for me!
My site was nominated for The Blogitzer! My site was nominated for Best Blog Design!

My site was nominated for Best Blog of All Time! My site was nominated for Hottest Mommy Blogger!

Yes, I’m totally going to torture you with this until the voting closes on May 22. So go vote, will ya? If you’ve already voted, why not register under another e-mail address? You’ll get to vote again that way!

    ironic – i was just pondering on my way to a meeting tonight about where do dead blogs go. Is there blog purgatory? Blog’s elephant grave yard? Blog ghosts? Can dead blogs be resurrected? Will there be blog archeologists 2000 years from now trying to piece our society together from the mad ramblings of hundreds of thousands of broken blog pieces? ummmm – i was just pondering….

    Endings scare me. I don’t do well with goodbyes, and I tend to avoid the issue altogether if I possibly can.BR/BR/I archive my blog locally so that all my writing and shooting of the past almost-three years isn’t lost to the ether if the actual site ever goes kaput.BR/BR/Someday, I figure it’ll make a neat scrapbook!

    I was reading a friend’s column in the newspaper where he spoke of the 60 journals he had filled – he’s 31. I have probably a dozen that date back to my first pink diary with the lock and wondered where all my words went – for I do write! I realized that a lot of them have gone into letters and e-mails and blogging and my one foray into NaNoWriMo (a really bad 50,000 word novella). And aside from the latter, I think it’s because of the interactive nature, that someone besides me is reading the words, keeping them alive. I’m going to have to give the last post thing some thought. Hello from Michele!
