I just wanted to thank all my fellow bloggers for 5 great years of blogging. This is my goodbye…
There are so many great people out there to thank I couldn’t let’s them all, but there are 5 of you I want to mention specifically.
Even though you are a cynical douchebag, you are an amazing friend. You speak your mind and you don’t give a fuck what other’s think. From day 1 you understood I went full “retard” when I wrote. Even my serious posts you would slap you dick on knowing I was full of shit. I appreciate you spreading your unwiped ass crack and dragging it across my blog like a dog with worm infested hemorrhoids. You see life how it is and you are not afraid to tell people it sucks. Keep up what you’re doing; I read you everyday you post.
2. Bill Murphy-
For years you’ve silently read me and I could never figure out why. One day you asked me to write for MMORPG.com and I still couldn’t figure out why. You are such a brilliant and talented man. You do so much for the MMO community. It alway blew my mind at how talented you are and how passionate you are about MMOs. You gave me that chance to be a real writer and I am forever grateful to you. My time at MMORPG.com was like a dream come true. I never really thought someone would want me to write for them and then send me money. I have the burning urge to still do it, but I feel the community doesn’t fit with me. My time there made me realizes I never had a popular blog because nobody really wanted to read my silly crap. It took a mass of strangers to put me in my place. I now know I’m not cut out for the writing business.
You are a saint! You have a heart of gold and unchained passion for life. I look up to you. You’ve showed me there are really great people in the world filled with selfish asshats. I look to your writing as inspiration to do better. I look to you as inspiration to be a better person. The days when you are feeling blue I want to pick you up and shield you from the rain of pain. You should never change because you are perfect. Your passion is pure and a blinding light in the darkness. Yes, life will sometimes kick you in the balls, but don’t let it bring you to you knees. Stand strong and be who you are and you will do great things with you life. I will always be around if you need hugs
Just like Victor, you are an amazingly caring person and your writing is flawless. When I read you I have no idea what to say because it is so great. You are insightful, creative, and well thought out. You raise the bar for MMO bloggers and you never conform to what other’s are doing. You do what you want to do and it’s perfect every time. About a year ago I let you down. You asked me for help and motivation and I failed. I couldn’t even muster lifting one tassel from a pompom to cheer you on and I’m sorry. You selflessly put on events for the MMO community like Secret Santa and helped Wurm Online. In return you get threatened and locked out of Twitter. You’ve done nothing but give to us all out of the kindness of your heart and people like me can’t even be bothered to help you when you needed. I’m ashamed and I’m sorry. I will always consider you a great friend and a mentor.
You have touched my sky! Your writing is awesome! You are one of the most creative bloggers out there. Every time I needed inspiration to write creativity, I would look to your blog from your character backstories to your fan fiction short stories, I was in awe. Your writing is excellent on every way. Just today I read about your NaNoWriMo endeavor. Even though you didn’t finish, I know you probably had a great story. Not only your writing has inspired me through the years, you’ve been there as a friend. I’ve had some wonderful conversations with you and you’ve always been great to talk to. You are very smart and caring. Your loving bride is very lucky to have you. I only wish you the best forever and I’m sure I’ll talk to you again.
There are so many more I would like to thank, but that would be impossible. These 5 people greatly impacted my life not only as a blogger/writer, but as a person. I’ve made real life connections with these people without ever shaking their hand. I hope someday I’ll have the privilege of doing that.
My blog is paid for until June next year, I’ll leave it up until then. I might pop in from time to time to talk about life, but I’m done with MMO blogging. So yes Chris Smith, I’m not quitting, but I AM quitting. Scary Worlds will no longer be a gaming site or a constant stream of bullshit, it will be a barren wasteland with an occasional mirage of content. I don’t know when or if I’ll post, but I have that option until June.
Again, thank you all for the support through the years. And River, Bill, Victor, Stargrace, Rowan… I love you guys thank you for everything.
