Hanging Up My Spurs (Again) March 22, 2019

Posted by geoff in News.

Has it really been 4 years?

4 years since we “closed” Innocent Bystanders?

Y’all may recall that back in March 2015 we decided that with the passing of Michael and the lack of interest in posting, Innocent Bystanders had reached the end of its natural lifespan. We had a series of farewell posts, with a lot of old friends popping up to say goodbye.

And on March 25, 2015, we stopped posting.

Then, two months later, the blogging bug bit me again, and I started writing. And we limped along for the next 4 years.

Bringing us to now, wherein I have to say that personal and work demands are making it very difficult for me to continue posting (as if you couldn’t tell). So I’m going on hiatus (I don’t dare claim that we’ll “close” the blog again).

Here’s where we were back in March 2015:

6032 posts
5.13 million hits

4 years later we have:

7122 posts
5.31 million hits

Not great stats over the past 4 years, but it was worth it, at least to me.

Well done, Geoff-Good and Faithful Servant!

And for everyone here…

I truly suck at blogging. Would much rather do face-to-face while eating a hamburger slathered with peanut butter with y’all. Or southing like that. I’m the squishy-hugs and sloppy kisses gal.

And now… am the owner of a lovely new Airstream and are planning many trips as a part-time RVNomad with sweet-hubby. Will try to stay in contact with as many of ya as I can if I have your contact info.

Thanks for holding down the fort, man. And thanks for not closing up shop completely. We’ll still be checking in from time to time.
