As the title implies, this will be the last post for my blog of 6 years, Psycho Carnival. I want to thank everyone who has continuously followed the blog in the past and present. Even those who have checked in, time to time, I appreciate the support. Speaking of support, I want to thank good friends like Gary, Static, Lilpixi, Bazza, Dixie and so many others, that it would take me forever to mention here, who have supported me through the good, bad, wild and crazy times while I've created posts on the blog. I really appreciate all of you and those I haven't mentioned. Hopefully, you'll know who I'm referring to because I've visited your great blogs in the past and present. You can look at my blogroll for all others who have interacted with me on the Internet, on their blogs or elsewhere, too.
I've seen a lot of blogs come and go on the Internet throughout my six years doing this. I've seen some really good ones stop posting and it has made me sad to see them drop off the radar in blogland. I get attached to people I really like. I'm that way with my offline friends, too. I think and I've read, too, where something dramatic will happen and they'll stop doing their blog(s) . The reasons they stop posting vary, of course. Could be a job that takes most of their time. Could be a death in the family. Could be, like in my case, total burnout from blogging. That's not to say I haven't enjoyed everyone's blogs that I've visited and commented on (or should I say rambled, endlessly, on?) And that's not to say I haven't enjoyed posting on my own blog, either, in the past. I'm just totally burned out on the whole blogging business.
Mine has always been a variety type blog. A lot of fictional stories. True stories. Some humorous subjects here. Some serious topics there. And some, maybe most, really, are a mix of emotions and topics of anything you can imagine or stuff that is unimaginable for you. One thing I've always been, however, is honest. I don't put on a superficial facade when I write. It has always been from the heart and I usually let you know when I'm just joking if I'm making something up. And I've always leaned more toward, in favor and comments, those who are similar, in some ways, to my own blog when it comes to variety, humor and honesty.
|Some folks who fake it could use a shitload of the ol' "facing reality" kind of therapy. Yep. But I won't rant about that for a change. LOL.|
This is my 500th post, by the way. A milestone. I enjoyed the journey, which this blog has been for me. I've also regarded this blog as being very therapeutic in letting me get things off my chest.
While being in the blog biz, I hope I've helped others with my past humorous, depressing, wise or somewhat inspiring true stories. That goes for when I've commented on your blogs, too.
I also hope you appreciate the following images. Some are political. Some I found to be funny, for whatever reason. Some you might not understand. I"m kind of complicated that way. LOL. I'm certainly no Simple Jack. Or am I? :)
The last two I find particularly humorous because you see a lot of that sort of thing (dramatic bullshit and endless arguing) on the Internet, in general, and on some blogs I've visited. I never could understand that type of unrewarding, trivial thinking on the parts of the players who participate in that stuff. But, heck no, I won't rant about that. I never rant. And I'm never sarcastic, either. Hahaha.... and so on.
I trust you've all gotten most of what I've tried to express in the past and enjoyed whatever it was I presented in words and images. It's been a privilege in getting to know you. I've certainly enjoyed commenting back and forth and exchanging ideas, jokes and viewpoints.
Who knows? Someday, I might blog again. It just won't be here and it will be, if it happens in the future, in a different style, for certain. I'll let you know if I return to the scene.
Also, I plan on writing a book (I've had this plot-line for one rattling around in my head for decades now) as soon as I catch up on books that I've had lying around, never read and fixing things around the place. The book I plan on writing will be fictional and incorporate some serious, humorous and surprising elements (especially for those who have read my stuff here).
If you want to "friend me" on Facebook, Google+ or if you want email me, let me know. I'll give you the information so we can remain in contact and continue to interact. I'd very much like that. My Facebook page is a lot like my blog. You won't see many goofy, cutesy pics of kittens or some similar shit like that... that often. Most of the time, it will be humorous pics I put on my timeline or some serious stuff. It's a mix.
In closing, I'd just like to thank all the people who have visited, commented on my posts and interacted with me on the net for all these years. I consider you my friends. Remember that! If you need my support, a laugh or anything that is possible for me to give, I'm there for you. Goodbye... for now. Any comments you make in the comment section, I'll respond to ASAP. I'll be making one last visit to all of your blogs, as well. Take care!
Aloha and mahalo!
