I take a brief break from pounding my head with the Auditing review text* to mourn the departure of Don Surber from the Blogosphere. There was some confusion earlier in the week when he mentioned this on Facebook; some of us thought his account had been hacked, but eventually the hideous truth came out. Although he was having a blast doing the blogging thing, the workload of trying to maintain his regular reporter & columnist gig at the Charleston (West Virginia) Daily Mail and do the blog got to be Too Much. It’s not an uncommon thing in the blogosphere, but in this case it hit a little closer to home. I’d been reading Don’s blog since before my move down to Alexandria from Minnesota in 2007, and when I started my Career of Evil here at The Other McCain, Don was a frequent linker to Live At Five. It was a big boost to my ego to see that somebody thought my linkagery was comparable to what Lucianne Goldberg, Doug Ross and the folks at Maggie’s Farm were doing, and it was one of the things that kept me flogging the keyboard through the long months when next to nobody commented on what I was doing.
Thanks, Don. Clear skies and many top-down days to you; don’t be a stranger.
*Yeah, it’s pretty much like this.
