That's Enough of That

This is my 100th post, and probably my last as Gone Back South. I'm glad I started this blog - it was fun and wonderful therapy when I needed it, and I've found some lovely lovely LOVELY people in the blogosphere. The thing is, I just don't feel like being GBS anymore. The future is calling ... I'll keep reading my favourite blogs, maybe leave some comments, and when I start a new blog with a new name I'll pop over and say hi. Life is sweet!

With love,
GBS

  1. You know, I think blogging in some way helps us all metamorphose into something different. I've moved on with my blogs mainly because of a troll but there is no denying I have grown as well and I needed to change the tone of my blog as I grew.
    Without the troll I could have done that on the same blog but in some ways, it is nice to have a new home.

    Hope you enjoy reinventing yourself as you look to the future. Take care. Hope to see you and even better, recognise you!

  7. Oh crikey you are one of the best bloggers going and I will miss your posts. I know what you mean about looking forward and now that you have your man back home I guess priorities are the family. You have such great talent as a writer - I hope you give serious consideration to following a career in writing somewhere along the line. All the best, let us know your new persona when you come back.

  12. Be sure to let us know when you have your second coming. Or run a competition to see if we can guess that it's you.

  17. Ahhh good luck lovely, and definitely let us know what you're up to and if you return to blogging. You're a wicked lady and all your reasons for stopping sound good, but I'm still a little sad. (Selfish? Moi? ;D) xoxoxoxoxox

    And blimey, the word verification for this comment is 'typing'. Your site knows stuff. I'm a bit scared.

  21. Do you know I keep thinking that I should stop blogging, but then something really funny/strange/sad happens and there I go again! Addictive!! Sorry to lose you.

  22. You are all such nice folk - thank you for these warm and wonderful comments :-) I would highly recommend blogging to anyone who is lonely, confused or struggling. It's absorbing. It's therapy. It's self-expression. It's contact. The emotional support you get from strangers - who end up being friends even though you have never actually met them - is astonishing. Thanks again ... and I'll be back!!!

  23. I hope you'll be back sooner rather than later, and I look forward to seeing the 'new you'! Change is positive and moving forward is the only wise option...better than moving backwards or staying still.

    I've enjoyed it here and you're going to be missed though:)
    Wishing you well until next time....
    Bella :)

  26. Just popping by to say "Hi" and hope to see you around soon.

  27. I think your decision is both healthy and inspiring. You have the sense to realise that it's time to 're-boot' yourself. Good on you. Now if only there was a way to re-boot one's ridiculous predilection for scoffing copious amounts of chocolate, watching far too much rubbish telly, spending too much time flipping through fashion mags full of gorgeous but anorexic 'Glamazons'...

  28. GBS - would you mind sending me an email address so that I can "invite" you to read my blog? I have the troll back.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You sound in great form, will miss you but please let us know your new blogname.

    Take care and good luck.

  30. Just to let you know that you're not forgotten and hope to hear from you sometime soon.

  31. Hi GBS - only just caught up with you after too long. Sorry to hear you've been under the knife and hope you're recovering well.

    Interested to hear that you are weary of GBS - you had no reason to be when you write so well and everyone loves you! Maybe it's just that you are settled now into your new life and feel that the original persona is no longer you? Gosh, I don't know, it's late and I'm rambling! I'd love to hear more of your thoughts on this. It's intriguing psychology.
    Take care and let us know when you reappear in a new guise!
