Hi! Long time no see, right?
Well, I’m afraid I’m not returning here for a gigantic comeback, with loads of new posts, all full of gifs, exclusive interviews, reviews, and analysis. Perhaps, all of the opposite.
Here is what happened. Back in December 2015, Imgur (the image hosting site I was using to save all the gifs posted to the site) deactivated my account due to the “excessive amount of bandwidth” the site traffic generated on their end. So, I started to search for alternatives, but none of them really satisfied the site need’s and hosting them in the same hosting plan I own would literally bankrupt me. I tried a couple of alternatives, but when I saw it was not working my drive to continue this project, along with my love to share all these ideas with you, started to fade.
A few months later things began to complicate at work, stress started to get the best of me, and life overall seemed much darker than when I started this journey. The blog was never a priority at that time and when I was finally able to get rid of most of the issues that brought me down, I knew restarting the blog would somehow bring me some of the anxiety that for so long I had to fight to keep under control.
I decided instead to do more things for myself and enjoy other passions I do have.
And here it’s what’s going on. I just received an email from my hosting company telling me is time to renew both my domain and hosting plan. That led me to ponder whether I still want to pay to maintain a “zombie” site and hold on to all of the memories and hours upon hours of work invested to get all of this done. Maybe renewing the site would keep the hope alive that I could find the much needed time and energy to restart again. But after much consideration, I thought it wouldn’t be responsible to ask myself to keep this idea in the back of my mind. And I feel I can find a better use for the $300.
So here is what will happen next. The site will go offline at any moment after February 24, 2018. Until then you will be able to read all the posts published and see the images hosted on the site’s native hosting. And for all those gifs you have been missing out since 2015, you can click on the galleries and links below to see them again… and again and again! (Just make sure to save the links!)
Now, this site may be closing down, but those of you who are really observant know that during this time I was never completely unattached from the online wrestling scene. In fact, I am and probably will still be involved with it for some time and I hope to keep contributing and helping it evolve as I move forward.
To all of the producers that contributed to the blog, thank you so much for trusting me in helping promote your work. Thanks to the fellow bloggers who were and still are active in the scene for motivating me to start this journey and in one way or another helped shaped the look and feel this blog evolved into over the past years.
And to all the readers, thank you for spending your time reading, commenting and sharing your
obsession, I mean, interest with me and the rest of the blogosphere. 🙂 You still have great options to follow (and I’m sure you are), but in case you need any advice check the blog list on the sidebar.
That’s all from me for now. Thanks for being part of the experiment. And remember, there is a little bit of Substance P inside every one. Literally!
