I’ve enjoyed writing The Bong for the past five years, however I’ve decided it’s time to call it a day.
As per most of my posts to date, here’s a protracted epitaph when a couple of sentences would suffice.
As the title of the blog suggests, the objective was never particularly serious or commercial, more so a recipe of cynicism, tactics, sneering and cavalier punctuation, and bizarrely it seemed to strike a chord with a wing of the toffee fanbase.
Whether it be character assassinations, sopranos simile’s or haphazard tactical ponderings, it’s been fun writing.
I’ve equally enjoyed interacting with fellow toffees via the blog, and speaking to them via Twitter, or in person in pubs and at the match. This been marvellous, which is remarkable given that I’m a very miserable man who generally avoids social interaction at all costs. I’ve been called all sorts along the way, like, (best one being “pseudo intellectual bullshitter”) but on the whole its been ace.
Sometimes things just run their course, though, and I think it’s time to put the plug in the jug.
Thanks again to all those who have supported and constructively interacted, and to those who’ve given me exposure to greater audiences along the way. In truth I’d probably have kiboshed it a year or so ago if it wasn’t for the positivity you’ve all thrown my way, so thanks lids.
All the best
