Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

are eye pee
The past week saw Regis Philbin and Keith Olbermann abruptly quit their TV shows. If you subscribe to the belief that these trends come in threes, you’re probably wondering when the third shoe will drop.

Well, you can stop wondering: It’s now, and it’s me. I’m quitting this blog.

All joking aside, this is the last post on Population Statistic — for now, and most likely, for good. I’d hinted at this back in August, and the reasons I set out then apply now. I’ve done all I care to do in this space. I’ve enjoyed using PopStat as a daily creative outlet for nearly seven years (and blogging as the format for nearly nine years). And now, it’s time to stop. When squeezing out one measly post per day becomes a chore — contrasting with the effortlessness I once had in cranking out four or five posts daily — it means that there’s nothing left to do but to end it.

In my typical fashion, I am hedging on this, slightly. The site will remain up for a while, with all content archives intact (although comments/pings will be disabled soon, to save me from daily spam maintenance). The domain is registered until this summer, so I plan on keeping the lights on until then. There’s always the possibility that I’ll recharge and restart the blogging sometime between now and then. But right now, I don’t see that happening, and basically, as soon as the domain registration expires, so too will this blog.

To the handful of regular readers that have haunted this space over the years, thanks. I’ll still be around online, and very probably will find another corner of the Web to express whatever communication talents I possess. For the time being, though, the plug is pulled.
