This morning I mourn the loss of another blogger brother, Bi Like Me. When his blog was unceremoniously taken down last week, I feared the worse. I know it is tough to start over, and had a feeling that he would not want to go through that pain again. So I was not surprised when he emailed me to tell me that he was done.
I was surprised when his blog was up and running a short while after. I had not heard of blogs being resurrected once they were removed by Blogger. But still, BLM had made his decision to bring an end to his blog, and I respect that. Although I am choosing to look at this as "See you later", hopefully it's "See you soon!", rather than "Goodbye."
I have enjoyed following Bi Like Me over the last couple of years. His blog was, and still is, one of the big dogs in my blogging world. BLM is a staple in my daily routine. Much of what he has described about his life, his desires, and his disappointments, mirrors my life. When I got the opportunity to write for BLM, I jumped at it. Writing for him has resurrected, somewhat, the efforts on my own blog.
His latest post, his Epitaph, only reaffirmed why I have been such a loyal follower. I recognize similar situations in my own life in what he has written. Similarities in how his feelings towards Ross began and changed. Similarities in his relationship with his wife. Please join me in wishing him luck, love and success in his life. And let's all hope that he decides to return one day.
