The Art of Darkness

…And Thanks for All the Fish

July 18th, 2016 by Cobwebs

'ByeSo! I started this silly blog clear back in 2007, as a way to share my love of gothy weirdness with the world. Because I am an idiot I made it a personal goal to update without fail every single weekday, and although I’ve actually managed that for over nine years(!!!) I have to admit that things have been limping a bit of late. It’s time, I think, to pack it in.

I’ll probably still post occasionally–keep me in your RSS feeds (are those still a thing?)–but it’ll be sporadic. My archive, of course, will stay up for as long as I can pay the bills.

Thanks to all of the commenters who’ve encouraged me over the years. You’re welcome to look me up on Facebook; I’m still weird over there.

    I certainly can’t keep my blog updated every day. Or week. Or month. It’s just how life works out sometimes. I’ll certainly miss my morning dose of spooky, but blogging should be fun and not a giant hassle.

    I totally understand, but I shall miss your blog. I love it, and appreciate all the work you’ve put into it all this time!

    I know it was hard to keep a daily post. Itried to post on this news group I belong a daily thought (or humorous saying) and foud that was hard to do on a daily basis. I can’t imagine how tuff doing large posts on a blog on a daily basis would be.

  12. Witcharachne Says:

    But I understand. I can’t even keep a blog going for more than a month. 9 years is amazing.
    I’m glad I can still spam you with weird shit on facebook too :)

  13. Jori Says:

    Oh my gosh! I’m going to miss checking in with your blog. Thanks so much for inspiring me.

  14. Kathy White Says:

    What everybody else said times two. I’m just sorry I discovered you so late in the day.

  15. StoneMaven Says:

    You will be greatly missed.

    I look forward to every Friday’s link dump, and the week long ones! I have followed you since I planned my own Hallowedding in 2008! Thank you and hope you still post on Fridays!

  17. Christy Lightner Says:

    Thank you for the shared live of all things quirky and cool. I’ve gotten so much entertainment and inspiration from this page for my crafts and for Halloween parties. Thank you!

  18. Mike Says:
