Here is my first blog, heavily influenced by sentimental pulls from my beloved Thoughts.com. The signs were flashing what may be but I hoped their promise would not come true.
Unfortunately for me, I happened on Thoughts.com when my knowledge of blogging and site format was negligible. I did feel very comfortable but had no idea that Thoughts would tick off all my boxes for many years to come. Even in its neglected status, it still does.
Even though my love affair with Thoughts’ site continues burning hot, its creators are unplugging its life support. Thoughts will be no more. For me, it cannot be replaced and will remain a perfection in my life.
Although I did go through upheavals while blogging there, the site’s format continues comparatively unmatched. In my frustrated phases, I would search and join another site but to my surprise, there was nothing that pleased me more than Thoughts.com. Once again using the words from an Eagles’ song some of us coined, “You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.”, Thoughts.com remains the best. I tried many other sites including WordPress of which Thinkr.xyz is attached and they all failed to capture my heart.
Now having no choice, sadly I walk away, pining for a place that cannot be replaced. As I ache with the loss, I turn to reality and what is available – a new adventure, a new story to create.
I am comforted that some loyal Thoughts lovers who seem to feel the same way, who, still there – holding on and hoping, are now perhaps reluctantly climbing into this new ship. Thoughts may not be replaceable but new love affairs are always possible.
All the same, “Here’s to you Thoughts.com, I love what you were and will never forget you.”
