You Will Be Missed...

Justin at A Gay College Guy in Virginia has decided to stop blogging.  He will greatly be missed.  I have been reading his blog almost since the beginning, and have enjoyed every post.  Justin created a blog that every personal blog should strive for:  his blog was funny, a great read, sometimes it could pull at your heartstrings, but never failed to inspire.  I was not out during college, but he was and I was able, in a way, to live vicariously through him.  He is part of the reason I started blogging.

I doubt my blog will ever be as personable as his was.  First of all, not much exciting happens in my life.  The lives of most teachers and academics are not terribly exciting.  Since Justin started blogging, there have been many who have tried to emulate him, but his style was one of a kind.  I would not have wanted it any other way.

Justin will be missed not only by me, but by many others who read his blog.  As I am sure many of you will, I wish him the best of luck in his future.  Justin is a special guy, and I am sure he will go far and continue to inspire others for many years to come.

Justin said on his last post that he will leave his blog up for another week or so and then he plans on deleting it.  If you have never read Justin's blog, I suggest you check it out while you can.

I know how you feel, Island Guy. I've had a few blogs that I'd just begun to read in the past, that stopped blogging shortly after I found them. It always made me sad to find a blog I really liked and then for the person to stop blogging. At least Justin did say goodbye, many don't do that.

However, I am enjoying your blog. I'm glad you followed me and thus directed me to your blog.
