The Break Up

Dear Blog,

I think it's time for us to face reality. We've hardly seen each other in months, and to be honest, I haven't missed you. Yes, we've had a lot of good times over the past few years, but I'm at a different point in my life now. I've moved on, and I think it's time for you to move on too.

Before you jump to conclusions, no, there isn't someone else. I won't lie to you--I've been on a few dates with Facebook and have flirted off and on with Goodreads (well, actually, Goodreads has done most of the flirting). I've checked out Twitter and Google Buzz from afar, but I don't see anything serious happening with either. I just don't want to be in any serious online social networking relationship right now.

Really, it's not you, it's me.

So it's time to end our relationship. You go your way, I'll go mine. I imagine our mutual friends will all decide for themselves whether to continue being my friend, your friend, or both. I just hope that you and I can continue to be friends, or at the very least be civil when we run into each other at parties and reunions. I bear you no ill will, and I hope you feel the same.

So goodbye, my dear Blog. Thank you for nearly five years of memories. I assure you, whenever I read a book or do something mundane with my kids or have a superficially profound thought and wonder, "How will I blog about this?," I'll remember you.

With love,

Mr. Fob
