Dear Blog: Goodbye

Years pass
And years pass
And then more years pass
And eventually, things come to an end

After keeping a blog for a little over four years I’ve decided to stop. QuixotiQ Writings has officially come to an end.

I want to thank everyone who took the time regularly to check my blog for updates and for those who left their comments as well. Meant a lot to me, really, it did. And I apologize for any shortcomings.

The past few months have been quite hectic. Many things happened in my life, and many others didn’t. I now barely have time to keep track of the things I should be doing, working on, organizing, writing that the last thing that comes to mind at the end of the day is writing another enter on my blog.

It’s been an interesting and entertaining journey and I’ve met some wonderful people online and learnt a lot, about my profession, my self and even, dare I say, humanity.

I went through some of my old posts and found myself smiling at most of them, the memories will certainly remain and both my old journal (on bravejournal) and this one, will not be deleted. I shall keep them online for posterity. I was though surprised to discover that over those four years I had only posted 345 entries. So, basically, I wasn’t that great of a blogger to begin with.

I considered thins a lot and kept asking myself why do I keep a blog? I realized that a) this wasn’t a personal blog; b) it wasn’t a political one either. It started as I said in my very first post in my older blog to “communicate with people, enhance my writing, and document my journey into publishing” and I feel that over the past many months, this has not been the case.

Alas, all things must come to an end.

Thank you and good night.

Oh and before I go…

MERRY CHRISTMAS

AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Sad to see you pack down the house and leave the local blogosphere Ali :(, hopefully you'll be back at some point in time :)

Still remember the first bahrain bloggers' meetup at the country club in 2005 Nov! You were amazing ;-)

See you around facebook mate and Seasons greetings!
