This is a response I didn’t expect. Why what? I’m happy to explain? But I’ll need a bit more context if you’d like your specific concerns addressed. I got no idea what you’re askin for, man.
Hey there sports fans, long time no see.
I have unpleasant yet unsurprising words to say.
This will hardly come as a shock to any of you, but obviously this blog does not hold as much bearing for me as it did three months ago, much less three years ago. I would however like to offer my sincerest apologies; I’ve all but completely abandoned any connection I had to My Chem and those of you who actually enjoyed these posts have been the victims of yet more negligent desertion, and for that I am sorry.
If there is anyone willing/eager/interested to take over posting duties, consider this your formal invitation to ask. Any online friends I had gained because of my involvement with this blog have taken similar yet individualised paths of ‘recovery’, if you will, since March. Most other My Chem-related blogs I’ve simply unfollowed. I have no interest on keeping tabs with something that causes me so much irritation.
I’m more than aware that this is all completely melodramatic and unnecessary but I felt obligated to provide some sort of explanation, given the circumstances. I’m aware that this post will remind most of you that you even followed this blog in the first place and I will not be surprised or angry if you immediately unfollow; I certainly don’t want you to stay if you don’t want to be here.
That being said, there was a question we received right after the breakup that I would like to answer before I step down. I actually did answer it two days (and too much whiskey) after it was asked but it ended up being an exercise in improperly venting anger and thankfully I had enough sense to store it away instead of posting it. Since editing it heavily I’d like to share my response; if I’ve earned anything from years of devotion it’s a bit of narcissism. The essay, and it is an essay, is equally as histrionic as this post and I’m not going to ask you to read it just to pretend to humor me, but I will be posting it soon.
I’m sorry to crop up out of nowhere after months only to announce my continuous avoidance. I’ve noticed there are people who have just recently followed and I feel I owe an additional apology specifically to those users. Until and unless someone appears to take over posting duties, these will be the last posts. This blog will remain as is, unless I delete it in a fit of resentment, until it’s shut down without my permission (though I’m not sure that’s even a thing that could happen). But as I mentioned, to ignore you completely would be grossly unfair and we’ve had enough of that to deal with.
Connecting with all of you, being able to share in even part of your experience has meant the world to me and I will be forever grateful that I have had this opportunity. As of this moment however, I cannot predict a time in the foreseeable future where I will be able to enjoy the band as I once had, never mind enjoying it in the same capacity as some of you still do.
Those who remain deserve a moderator who loves My Chem at least half as much as you and I can say with much certainty, albeit regrettably, that I can no longer be that person.
Thank you for letting me be part of your experience in the My Chem fandom. It wasn’t always fun, but I’m glad to have been here with you. I love you all.
