Farewell

I started this blog on September 24th 2005. That is just over 3700 posts ago. The intervening years have - in personal terms - alternated between the worst and the best of my life. And the blog, and especially you readers, has been helpful as I navigated all that. I have met many, many smart and kind people here virtually all virtually. I thank you all for dropping by. For the past year or so, however, I have found it increasingly difficult to devote time to this enterprise. So I have decided to stop altogether. I hope to keep writing about photography and politics elsewhere. But at the moment I'm on my way the store to pick up the moth balls.

THE END

I almost always clicked through to your posts from Feedly and will
miss them!

Also, I don't know if you remember but I have not forgotten a very kind email you sent me once after I made a comment about my cancer. It was much appreciated.

Hopefully I will come across your work elsewhere (um, Twitter is great for those short of time?!).

Thanks for writing.

I go away for a week and come back to this? I'm glad we're virtual friends elsewhere.

Jim, your "(Notes on)" has been a go-to blog for me since 2008. You'll never know how important it has been for me, yet I'm sure you have an inkling.

Thank you.

Like another reader... I finally get to go on vacation and return to discover you've done gone and left!?!?!

Thank you for the years of effort- will most definitely be missed 'round these parts. Yours was a most sorely needed voice of sanity and insight. A class act throughout...

BEST!

Dear Jim,

I second the comments above. I have very much enjoyed your blog, both the forceful straight-talk and the very personal posts.

You would not consider group-blogging, would you...? I will miss your blogging.

Best wishes,
trane

It is hard to give up a labor of love, but it is frustrating to not have sufficient time for that labor.
Best of luck with future projects.
