so long, farewell, the end is extremely neigh

It looks like the Metblogs World HQ aspirations of acquisition just missed the boat for cityblog network buyouts, leaving the network running on (or, rather, out of) fumes. After years of riding tides, bailing out leaky ships, and whatever other nautical metaphors float your collective boats, Metblogs is calling it quits at the end of the month.

This means that nearly six years after saying hello to Seattle, it’s time for this branch of Metblogs to say goodbye. Although Zee and I were here at the beginning, she’s the only one to have truly endured the marathon. Along the way, though, the site could not have existed without the generous contributions from dozens of wonderful writers, thousands of thrir posts, even more of your comments (almost always nice), and the tens of thousands of stunning donations made to our photo pool.

Sometime before HQ turns out the lights for keeps, we’ll update you with our forwarding addresses so that we can keep up once this extended summer camp has ended. Thanks for reading, see you soon, have a great summer, and stay cool.
