Whether you’re a subscriber via RSS, email, or you just check the site regularly for updates, you’ve noticed by now that I just haven’t been writing lately. Especially keen observers will notice this started when I began working full-time. It’s true: I haven’t yet mastered the coveted work/life balance. It makes a sort of sense: I’m only just out of college and work/life balance is something it takes people years to achieve.
Unfortunately, PTY has become the victim hit hardest by my new big-girl life. While strictly speaking I have “time” to write for it, I do not have the mental energy anymore. Days bleed together and creative projects fall by the wayside.
So rather than let PTY languish any longer, I’m going to take this last opportunity to make a clean break. I’ll write up a comprehensive guide to the archives that will be the new front page of the site, and that will be my last post. This way, all of the invaluable information in the archives will be easily accessible and still open and free to the masses.
I have not come to this decision lightly. Blogging has brought me friendships, a bit of money, a strange sort of internet-fame, and most importantly, it got me through the roughest patch of life I’ve experienced so far. But given the choice between watching PTY slowly fall into disarray, or taking the steps today to put it to rest properly, I think the choice is clear here.
(And maybe it will give me time to actually read the Hitchhiker’s Trilogy, since I’m really sort of a phony, using this post title without having finished those books.)
Many thanks to the thousands of you who have made PTY a success, and the handful of you who contributed time and time again. I hope you’ll continue to follow my inane and ultimately pointless ramblings on Twitter, since that’ll be the place to find out if I ever start a new project.
