This is it. Goodbye. Farewell. I love you all, each and every one of you.

You’ve been great friends, and I will miss you, but maybe it won’t be forever.

It won’t.

I simply can’t stay away for that long.

I’ll be back.

I promise you.

Perhaps only for a monumental occasion, or perhaps just a photo, but mark my word I will come back. Not today, not tomorrow, maybe not for weeks, but if you cling on and wait, I will be back. This blog means too much to me to just get up and leave. I guess I’ll see you ‘round. 

Goodbye for now.

Much love and many many many Bowies, Claire.

Here’s the deal; I’m going to leave my blog alone. I won’t get on it ever again after next Sunday, maybe sooner. It will remain up, but just no more new posts ever again. I’ll have one final bout of posts this week, but after that I really need to cut the chord.

What a pity. I admit, it was the product of a lot of hard work… too much hard work. But through it I’ve gained some incredible friends and had some of the best times of my life, really I have. 

Thank you, but my time has come. 

Goodbye forever then!

I’ll give you all a one-week notice before I leave for good. But, by next Sunday, twig-the-wonder-kid shall reign no more. If you are one of the 20 or so of my followers who actually give a damn about me, message me. I’ll give you a link to my other blog, a more personal blog that I don’t feel so bad to actually do things on.

No… perhaps I will abandon it. Just leave it to rot rather than wipe it off the face of the earth. Or maybe I’ll turn it over to one of you… right now I’m leaning towards letting it sit…. forever…

Well…

I’m going to delete my blog.

In my opinion, I am working too hard for something that no one rewards. It’s stressful. I worry about scaring off followers with personal posts, or not posting enough, or coming off robot-like. That’s not what having a blog should be like. It shouldn’t make my heart lurch to check to see if I’ve lost any followers, it shouldn’t make me want to cry when I post a photo that I spent an hour editing to perfect condition get only 2 notes, I shouldn’t worry so much about a blog, and yet I do. That’s not what having a blog should be like.

When I first came on tumblr, I looked at the accomplished Bowie blogs and decided I wanted to be just like them, what with them being showered with lovely messages, people coming to them with questions about Bowie… I wanted to have a blog like that. I tried, and it obviously did not work. It wasn’t really the praise I was after, but the respect. I wanted to be seen as someone of value. But, through this past year I’ve realized that just won’t, and can’t, happen. I do not belong here, that’s been made perfectly clear. 

I am sorry for wasting space on your dashboards. 

I am sorry for wasting time posting pictures no one really cares about.

I am sorry for filling tumblr with just another blog of no value.

I am sorry for annoying people in attempt to befriend them.

I am sorry it took me this long to realize no one cares about me or what I have to say.

Fear not, I’ll be deleting my blog soon enough. I’m sure you’ll all be happy to have me from your busy dashboards.

Much love and many Bowies, Claire.
