Well, I think when I chose to shut down the blog late last year I was probably making a wise decision. I think I knew things were changing for me. There’s not many topics I haven’t tackled regarding Decatur. I’ve pretty much said what I’ve wanted to say. Yeah, there are other things I could say but it’s like a TV show that stuck around a season too long or a sermon that would have been more effective if it had ended 20 minutes sooner, I think it’s just time for me to officially move on.
In about a year, I’ll be pounding the pavement looking for a job and more than likely I probably won’t find it here in Decatur or anywhere too close. I have no idea where I’ll be, assuming I find my dream job out there somewhere. I might stay in Illinois and I might not. I just don’t know! Either way, I’ve moved on in other ways. I’ll continue writing and blogging on my other blog and I’m looking forward to the day when I can devote more time to it.
Anyway, there were a lot of good times writing this blog and I enjoyed interacting with some really good and smart people. I’ve always been amazed that I never once was treated badly by any reader. That surprises me because I probably wrote some dumb things here and there! You all were very forgiving. The blog was always good to me and I wish Decatur the best.
