Flip Flop Flying

The end

with 41 comments

I don’t want to do “blogging” any more.

I’ll still use this page to tell you if there’s new stuff on flipflopflyin.com, just in case any of you use the RSS to find out that particular information, but apart from that: no more blogging.

Of course, it’s possible I’ll change my mind in the new year, but right now, this feels pretty much like the end.

It was fun.

Thanks for reading.

  3. Seriously? Oh well, guess I’ll have to find something else to make my homepage. What’s brought this on Craig, if you don’t mind my asking?

  5. it’s your choice – obviously…

    but I am sure that over the next days there will be loads of entries begging you to go on….

    looking back your blog was a reliable source of interesting, challenging and/or funny stuff – if that goes on without a G – fine!

    …if not a lot of us will go into mourning…

    Cheers

  9. Aw Craig.

    I try not to take the whole too “blogging” thing too seriously, but you were the first, man, the first one I ever felt like reading on a regular basis, and I’ve been with you right from the start, so this is surprisingly upsetting :’-{

    I will truly miss your wonderful combination of sardonic wit and fantastic photos, though it’s good to know flipflopflyin’ will still be there as a source of gorgeous / touching / weird design and animation.

    Thanks mate and all the best.

  14. I agree with everyone here, it really is a genuine shame to see the blog go, I’ve been an avid reader since you first fired her up and I’ll miss your out-of-left-field view on the world. Glad you’ll be keeping up with FFF though. Take care beardy.

  18. ah, such a nice picture to mark the end. i’ll admit i haven’t kep track of FFF as much so it’s useful to update the blog about it.

  30. you HAD to end it so you could put such a great ENDING PICTURE.

    thats a great way to leave, like a cowboy walking to the sunset’s direction.

    i think it all matches everything else in your life. closing some doors and opening others, the moviment of changing places, the cosmic rays hitting the poles during winter time, george harrison playing my sweet lord, packing another CD on a box, goodbye berlin, hello whatever is next… and so on.

    (yeah.. and this comment should come with an incense as a free gift)

    : )

    i wonder whats next!

    good luck.

    i should shut up now.

    fsssst. transmission, over.

  31. Very rarely do I post, but I am so sad that you are not continuing the blog (I was bitterly disappointed when Billy stopped blogging as well). I’ve been lurking a little too long, as it feels like I am loosing a friend.

    Best wishes to you (and Pete and Bob, my favorites).

  41. Eventhough I understood it was coming, I will mourn your distance. You have been in my world for quite a few years now and I really really don’t want to loose the connection.

    All your ups and downs, your work, your thoughts, your distinction between the private and the not as private Craig. The Cnuties. Shit, I will so miss you.

    On the other hand, as one door is silently closing another may burst open. But… I want to be there when it does. Share it.

    Anyway, lots of love Craig and a safe return! If you ever choose to come back.
