Missing them

For the third time this year, a blogger I adored is shutting her doors and sealing all the windows... saying goodbye, in other words.

It's always a nasty shock to me when this happens. I guess I could understand why MedStudentWhoKnits needed to change things up when she ceased to be a med student. I'd always wondered how Miss Snark kept up her business while also posting thousands of words (intelligent, well-thought-out words) each day. And now, one of my daily favorites, GoldPoppy, has announced that she is through, at least for now.

I loved her posts. She always had fantastic photos. She sometimes shared poetry by authors I'd never discovered before, but now count as favorites. She could be outrageous, whimsical, and devout, all in the same paragraph. She shared a lot of herself in her daily blog entries - very brave, that woman.

I will miss her.

  1. Wow! What a fantastic tribute! Thank you!!

    I put a lot of energy into The Gold Poppy, so much so that I didn't have any zip leftover to do things I really need to do, like get ready for a photo show coming up in September. I miss blogging, though, and I really miss the blogging community. Once I get things in "real" life more organized, no doubt I'll blog again. Once it's in the blood, it's not possible to put it down forever.

    Glad to "know" you! And THANK YOU so much!
