An Official Retirement

I suppose this is more of a formality at this point, but hey, why not.

Unless you really haven’t been paying attention, you may have realized that there haven’t been all that many blog posts here for… a really really really long time. There are several reasons for that. A slowdown in blogosphere activity, a greater focus on my fiction writing, and a general decline in interest on my part.

On top of that, when I first made this google account, it was connected to my student email address. With graduation in sight, that email address is going to be gone in less than a year. Now, I could just change the email attached to this. But for various reasons, including a smidgeon of tinfoil hat paranoia, I’m letting this account die, and moving on to a new one. As such, after my university email is gone, my access to this account will also be gone, leaving me without means to update the blog. And because of this, I’ve decided it’s finally time to say goodbye. I’m not leaving the Mythos entirely; I’ve still got to finish my Fearblog, Mephi, and my Slenderblog, Picking at Ruins, before I consider that (although PaR is currently on hiatus until I finish the major Mephi update I'm working on). But Encyclopedia Slenderia will officially not be having any more posts. It’s been a good run, and I’m glad I got to be a part of this Mythos. I have to thank all the people who read my blog; when I started, I never imagined I’d get this many followers.

If you’re still looking for a place to get your Slender fix, SlendySlayer Reviews is a good site for finding quality blogs and vlogs. And I occasionally hear rumors that maybe Slenderbloggins will one day come back, so you might want to keep an eye on that in case any of those rumors come true.

But for now, all good things must come to an end, even if the announcement of that ends comes several months after it happened. Fare thee well, Encyclopedia Slenderia. And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

  2. Farewell, Encyclopedia Slenderia. You were a beautiful blog filled with beautiful posts. And you mentioned Rapture at least once, so your work in the world is done.
    ..but in all seriousness, as sad as it is to see this blog go, I'm really glad you decided to make it official like this. A blog that just quietly dies off is sad. A blog that goes down with an ending (whether the blog be fiction or nonfiction) is respectable and admirable and wonderful and Omegaful.

    Rest in peace in Blog Heaven, Slenderia.

  3. As sad as I am to see it end, I'm glad I got to find it at all. So long, Slenderia.

  4. I appreciate your making an actual goodbye post, rather than leaving us to wonder if Slendy got you.

    It's been a good blog.

    A fond farewell to the blog that introduced me to the Mythos. Thank you.
