This is the 48th Blog Off topic we’ve introduced and it’s also the last. Painful though it may be, it’s time to just admit that this bloggery phenomenon has seen its day in the sun and at this point, it’s in the rear view mirror.
Gerard and I have been carrying this thing and as our professional lives have intervened, it’s become more and more inconvenient and there’s been less and less a return on our efforts. As the social web’s matured so have we. Not just Gerard and I, but all of us who’ve participated since all of this started in August of 2010. We hope that we’ve made a difference in our participants’ lives but it’s time to call it a night.
All of the archived blog posts will live on in a new website and you can find it here. This means everybody’s links will remain live ’til further notice and maybe forever. What it means too is that this website’s going to go away after we wrap up this Blog Off.
We’re sad about this of course, but it’s just time to chase down other interests and opportunities.
Many thanks to everybody who’s ever participated in #LetsBlogOff and thanks for your willingness to go along with our at times crazy ideas.
So for the next Blog Off, let’s write an obituary for the Blog Off. What did you get from this exercise and what would you have done differently had you been at the helm? What new bloggers did you meet through this exercise you’d have never met otherwise? What do you plan to do next?
