UPDATE: Ah, the power of persuasion! Due to an overwhelming uprising amongst his followers, Glenn has agreed to keep his blog active. He felt that he could not devote enough time or effort to the blog because of real life conditions, but we have convinced him that, since there are no rules as to when or how often he has to post, he can come and go as he pleases. I, for one, look forward to his continued blogging participation. (I just wish he hadn't deleted his old stories!)
I dropped in to see Glenn at Differences with the Same Likenesses this morning, and was disappointed and dismayed to find that he has signed off and taken his posts with him. I know this happens, but it is my first experience with it. I knew that he had been questioning why he had started a blog in the first place, though it was obvious to those of us who visited him that he had some wonderful 'stories' to share, and all of his posts were a pleasure to read. I don't know if he felt pressured to have to submit something, if he was disappointed with his writings, if there were time constraints, or what.
And that's the problem, or the frustration ... that we don't know WHY. I wish he had talked this through with us, his readers, a little more, to at least prepare us for his imminent departure. Not that he owed us anything, but it's kind of like having a friend, co-worker, or next door neighbor pack up in the middle of the night and not leave a forwarding address.
Anyway, I, for one, will miss reading his stories, but wish him well ... and will hope that someday he changes his mind and comes back.
