Well, I sent Autumn Duskhunter from the now defunct Homework in a Graveyard blog an e-mail, and I basically said my readers want to know did you quit and should I be scripting up some questions for an exit interview.
Autumn sent back this very kind address to all her fellow bloggers:
"To my friends, and followers of "Homework in a Graveyard",
As you can tell, the Graveyard is no more, This was a calculated measure, whereas I cannot continue to blog about a game I am no longer involved in. Words and ideas can be powerful tools, but a blog is only as good as it's writer, 'Homework', once full of optimism, has slowly sunk into cynical pontification, and self-perpetuating narcissism, in a case deemed terminal.
Unlike TFN, DoaW, and all the other fine blogs out there, who can remain stable and even-tempered, Homework, and myself, are too given to wildly swinging arcs of passionate outburst. There is already more than enough negativity in this world, and I will not allow 'Homework' to languish and become part of that larger sphere. So, I have archived it, and removed it.
It was my first attempt at blogging, and I have met many great people, and learned much. However, I am still on a 'MMO pilgrimage', of sorts, and sadly, W101 is not the 'MMO Home' I hoped it would be.
Do not mourn 'Homework's" passing, I ask of my fellow bloggers no tribute, aside from perhaps a gravestone at Valerian's. If you truly want to 'tribute' Homework, do it by going to every blog you follow, and take a moment to thank the blogger. Blogging is a personal sharing of the individual, so take the time to thank all those who open their lives to you. As for myself, I am withdrawing inwardly, to become, once again, a private gamer.
As Friendly is quick to ask of you, ala Bill & Ted, "Be excellent to each other!". You are part of a special family, one that I was honored to be part of.
Thank you Autumn! I will try my best to keep the Tenure for Dworgyn banner raised high for you and may the Penny Dreadful story always be an fond mystery for us all! I just have to say that your ideas and your wit were always appreciated. For the short time that you were writing for us all, thank you . . . well done.
Here's to success in whatever you do, and as always . . . Happy Dueling!
