Calling It Quits


After six years and one month and roughly 10,000 posts, I've decided to call it quits. As much as I'd love to keep this blog going, I just feel that now is the best time to move on. This blog consumes many hours and I think it's best to begin spending that time elsewhere. Although I fell a little short of where I had hoped to take this blog, I still had a blast and am proud of all the work that I put into it. I am thoroughly grateful to all that have ever visited and especially to those who actually enjoyed it. Thanks for reading and I hope that I helped you discover something new.
