Not So Fairy Tale Ending – Jodifur

 “Once upon a time there was a girl.  A girl, who read perhaps too many blogs.  Who read so many blogs that one day her husband said, “you read so many blogs you might as well write one.”


And so she did.”  How did this fairy tale end? Continue reading… UPDATE: As of 8/27, the blog may have been deleted. Sorry for the dead link but I hope it’s just a temporary error.



Indefinite Hiatus – Poorer Than You

Due to a new job and conflict of interest, Poorer Than You’s finance blog is on hiatus.

Will this blog ever come back? I truly don’t know. Probably? I can’t say what the future holds, but I do know this about myself: if it’s ever not a conflict of interest any more, then I will post again. When or whether that will ever happen is what’s unknown, though.Will it ever come back?”  Start reading…


Hibernation or The End – Eat Drink and Be Mary Sue

Sometimes bloggers don’t close shop. They just take a hiatus.  In this case, it’s been 2 years since her Eat Drink and Be Mary Sue’s last post.

“I’m not sure if it’ll be back, or even if it’ll be in a blog format. I’ve had some other things on my mind and in my life lately.

But I was dragged back here because I’ve been getting a rash of apparently inebriated people at godawful hours of the morning feeling the need to comment on years-old posts..” Continue reading...


September 11th Posts – Metro Dad

Every September 11th, Metro Dad publishes a letter to a close friend killed in the terrorist attacks that day.  While not technically a last post, Metro Dad does not write often. However, he never forgets to write a letter to his friend, so this blog is likely to end with one of these letter posts.

“Dear Andy,

Someone once said that early September brings out the kind of bright blue skies that people who love New York love most about New York. The skies are not only magnificently blue but they also have a light, crystalline hue that gives the illusion of seemingly infinite visibility. The brightness of the late summer sun always makes this one of the most beautiful times of the year. You never really see a sky like this any other time of the year.

Sometimes I wish I could enjoy it more.”  Keep reading…

Goodbye Post – Hairpin

Does Twitter mean the death of blogging? Another blogger bids farewell to loyal readers.

“Hey, young lovers.

I’m out. No! It’s going to be okay. This is the internet, I’m not, like, moving to a new city your parents won’t want to drive you out to on the weekends. And I’ve written a rambling books post for you that will be up later this afternoon, so this is not The Last of Nicole for today, even.” Read more…

Thinner and Wiser – I’m Losing It Here

Another blogger’s journey has run its course.

I’m Losing It Here started out as a way for me to document our family’s journey to find our way out of crushing debt, as well as a way to track my weight as I’d just lost 30 pounds and intended to keep it off. Along the way though something I never thought would happen did . . . people found my blog, read what I had written, and came back again. Some commented, others didn’t, but over the past three years readership has grown to numbers that continue to surprise me and fill me with gratitude. I’m very proud of my little blog that could.” Continue reading…

Changes – 30 Bucks A Week

30 Bucks A Week chronicled the lives of a New York City couple trying to spend only $30 a week on groceries.

“It’s been just over four years since our first post here on $30/Week.  Over that time, this project has turned from a short-term experiment into a lasting part of our lives.  Though we’ve had some ebbs and flows in our blogging consistency, and we’ve been more careful about keeping to our budget in some weeks than in others, this site has definitely led us to some long-lasting and pretty fundamental changes in the way we shop, cook, and eat.

As a result, the experiment that we were chronicling on this blog has sort of just become a part of how we live our lives..’ Keep reading...
