I was pretty much done writing what I assumed would be my last open forum. It was a very emotional farewell to all of you. I hated the whole situation. Then when I was about to be done I notice this:
Okay, deleting all that I wrote previously. Now I don’t know what to think or do. Feel a bit numb about it.
I guess will just sit down and watch if the fires develops or cease for now.
I’ve been really sad about Tay potentially shutting down. It’s weird, I don’t feel I am as active here as much as I used to be. I have been pondering of giving the task of writing open forums on Tuesdays to someone else. But every time I start to write something I just find it relaxing. It is sometimes bothersome to force something out on a Monday night right after work, but the end result is satisfying, much thanks to the people who responds. I don’t really consider myself much of a writer, I’m fully aware that I can make a lot grammatical errors. But I try, and would like to think I’m slightly better than I used to be. It is much thanks to TAY that I write at all, aswell as Kotaku that made some of the things I wrote gain more attention than anything I’ve put out on the internet before or after. So I guess in the end I still want to keep writing open forums. Also if it shut down feel like I would have missed out on a good platform to write longer articles. The ones that I wrote are way too few. Starting your own blog and start from scratch just wouldn’t be the same. So here is a promise that I will try to do some more of that if we stay.
Take care everyone.
Here are some suggested topics for today:
- What made you stumble into TAY, and what made you stay?
- What do you think about everything going on right now with Kinja sites?
- What sort of community have you part of that you left or the group cease to be? On the internet or IRL.
- Or talk about anything.
