Thanks for the run. I pass on shards.

I've decided to stop blogging. I've recently gotten a substantial promotion. The work loads and responsbilities have picked up dramatically--I now have to flip the patties and tend to the deep fryer timer at the same time.

It's been a short run, but I've had tons of fun. It was great getting to know all of you. I wish I had met more of you. Although there were many blogs I enjoyed and followed on a daily basis, I've only commented on a few. Most of the time, it was because I had nothing constructive to add. Plus, I'm really shy.

I think the wow blog reader base in general are extremely astute. I know this for a fact, because not only was I a writer, but also an avid reader. Thank you for your support; it really meant a lot to me.

Have a great summer and thanks for the run.

Telexx said...

Jong, I loved your writing style and you were (like, totally) my favourite WoW blogger by a mile.

Take it easy man, congrats on the promotion and good luck!

why jong why!

you'll always have a special place in my blog reading heart, and good luck with life =]

Bell said...

I never posted a comment because I thought I could never say anything more than "amg you so funneh!" and that was sad. I'm glad you were with us for such a short time, you were one of the best of us.

Good luck with everything, sir!

Skillcap said...

I will miss you terribly, I had so many people bookmark your page.

gnomeaggedon said...

You still here?

Go on...

Jong, Jong, Jong...
If I could write a song about Jong
It would come out all wrong...

Geez.. that's shit isn't it... lucky I didn't write a song...

Guest spot available at the home of the Gnome any time you get the itch...

Don't let the hot oil stain your sweet threads!

Until next time...

Gnomer and Out!

Arioch said...

You bastard!

Sorry, had to get that out there.
Real life is more important and all... I guess...

Seriously, best wishes with all that you're doing.

Please don't remove your previous posts, I hit them up whenever I need a pick me up. And to gaze longingly at your gorgeous frosted tips.

Don't be a stranger, you know where to find me. =P

Grimmtooth said...

BUMMER!

You, sir, have character, and I will miss that character in my reading list.

Thanks for the short yet enjoyable time you've been among us.

Are you still going to play WoW? You can always do what I am doing and not 100% quit blogging. Only blog once every couple weeks or so.

The reason why I like your blog (and probably most others) is your writing style and your personality. I would still read your blog if it turn into Britany Spears life journal.

The content isn't the important thing, the writer is.

Whatever you do, KEEP IT JONG STYLE NEGRO!

:(

spinksville said...

Good luck out there! You're an awesome writer, so even if you never blog again, don't stop writing!

Elleiras said...

But I just got here!

... Okay, that's a lie. I've been here. But, like Bell, I don't often comment because I seldom have anything clever to say. And you, sir, deserve clever.

So long, and thanks dearly for the fish!

Lance said...

C u around m8. Sure will miss the tongue-in-cheek posts...

chronic said...

I cried :[

pilfkin said...

Just to add my sad panda face to the multitude and hope that you're feeling the love.

Good luck in RL and WoW Jong.

Tonyx said...

Now this is a sad day.
Good luck Jong.

Dechion said...

May the road rise up to meet you and all that jazz...

Seriously, whether you choose to write about WoW or not, keep writing somewhere.

*vlad* said...

Oh noes. I've had great fun reading your blog.
I will miss it.

holydiscipline said...

Like many others, I never commented because I didn't have anything else to say other than "gahahahaha" to what you had to write and I was too lame to post it.

Sad to see you go - I always looked forward to reading your posts - bitingly clever is always fun to read.

Shy said...

Gratz on the promotion, and thanks for having shared your thoughts with us.

kyrilean said...

All the best, man!

Bob said...

Fine. Whatever.

Oh sure, some people may say that real life is more important. But what the hell do they know?

It's your choice:
-Grind a steady job bringing in thousands of dollars twice a month.
-Or grind steady dailies paying 13 GOLD twenty-five times a day.

-Stand in Dalaran basking in the adoration of everyone looking at you and fighting off invites of people looking for epic gear.
-Or stand in the club basking in the envy of all the guys and fighting off all the girls looking for the epic Jong Schlong.

Hmmm, never mind. Good choice.

Jong, I salute you.

Clearly said...

Are you kidding me? =( Now I only have Paladin Shmaladin.

Firespirit said...

I think I agree with Larisa:

:(

Good luck in your ventures. If you see fit to stop by after a few months and drop a post, I wouldn't be angry about that either :)

Shamrockgirl said...

A little part of me just died inside. I will miss you dearly, you brought me tears through laughter so many times in the short time i have been reading this blog.

<3

Justamom said...

I'm sad this is my first time at your blog but happy I have much to read here though:)

Enjoy what lies ahead.

Kimberly said...

I will truly, truly miss your blog. I laughed every single time and often read it aloud to The Rogue because it was so funny.

Be well, Jong. I'll miss ya.

Almaster said...

we will all miss your blog, its sad that my first comment on your blog was on the bye bye post.
i couldnt put it in a better way than Bell have:
I never posted a comment because I thought I could never say anything more than "amg you so funneh!" and that was sad. I'm glad you were with us for such a short time, you were one of the best of us.

best of luck!

Misneach said...

Sorry to see you go, but I wish you the best of luck.

Take care.

Hatch said...

This makes me very sad.
I'll miss your sense of humor the most. Happy trails!

highlatencylife said...

Jong,

You will be missed, good luck in all you do.

Figworth said...

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Really, though, I looked forward to reading your posts as much as I did BRK and Megan, and will miss your delightful sense of humor. Good luck with your career, and thank you for sharing with us.

Nibuca said...

Yesterday my brother asked me for a list of bloggers who were "must reads" and Jong was at the top of the list.

Our numbers are diminished.

Hana said...

Thanks for the fun and congrats on the promotion. :) Your sharp wit shall be missed.

Ripper said...

Will miss your "Jong" style writing, like another said its not the topic but the writer that matters and your blog was always a great read.

Anonymous said...

I can only add...gutted. Congratulations on the promtion Jong and thanks for the laughs :) Only one thing remains to be asked:

Can I get fries with that?

This was the only blog I read regularly.

Syrana said...

Congrats on the promotion but... awww :(

I am going to miss your posts if you stop writing completely. Occasionally I left you a lame comment that did no justice to the entertainment the post held for me.

Like Gnomer said.. if you ever have the itch and just want to guest post somewhere, you know where to find me. :)

ByStander said...

Another one bite the dust

Sprink said...

On one hand, grats on the promo! I'm sure you'll do awesome!

On the other hand, poop. Who else am I going to share my insanity with? Kindred spirit and whatnot. ^_^ I hope that even if you're not blogging, you'll at least still stick around for the comments. And keep me posted on that mage you rolled. ~_^

While I'll miss my favourite WoW blog, I wish you success at work. Congratulations on the promotion, Jong.

And should you ever start blogging again you can be sure this rogue will be reading you!

Stoico said...

I wish you congratulation with your new job m8. Good work... :)

I have had alot of fun reading this blog. I found it a long time ago, and have been a big fan since. You have an unique style and approach to things. I have been lol nummerous times, to the amusement of my co-workers. Keep your head high m8.

David said...

Fer cryin' out loud. I mean, I am DEFINITELY happy for you, Jong! Good luck with your life and your new promotion!

But man. Losing yet another fantastic blogger is selfishly hard to take....

Joanna said...

Oh no Jong!!! I loved your blog so much more than anything else!!

It was my silver lining on every morning, even if it was just re-reading an old blog of yours!

Good luck with everything and I hope that you return to blogging if you find the time!

HP said...
