How often do we see big dramatic ends to blogs, declarations of account deletions, mass unfollowings on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.?
I’m not sure what anyone gains out of these posts and statements other than attention.
Personally, I find a pie in the face works just as well!
All jokes aside, I know some folks enjoy the discussion, but I don’t. It’s a waste of my bandwidth, and in the case of social networks, these declarations seem to cause more drama than anything else.
People don’t need to justify pulling the plug on anything online. How anyone chooses to invest their time is a personal choice!
Like anyone who has been out here long enough, I think about ending my blog, cutting massive amounts of my Facebook following, etc., etc. I think about it every week. That’s the truth.
And you know what? If I do it, expect me to pull the plug and that will be that.
When I end this blog, I promise to post a picture of a dolphin with a headline that says, “So Long, and Thanks for All the Blog Fish.” If you get that, you’ll know what’s up. And if you don’t, oh well, you’ll figure it out sooner or later.
Point being is if you’re really done, then be done, and leave. Why bother with the drama?
Make no bones about it, I won’t waste anyone’s time with unnecessary melodrama. I’ll just quit or unfollow, and be done with it.
What do you think makes a good exit?
