Dear Xanga.

Things have changed between us. Our relationship has changed in the last few years. I think the time has come to face facts. What we had was great, but we’ve been growing apart for some time now and I think the time has come to face the fact that… it’s over.

Look, it’s not you, it’s me. I’ve moved on. Since I came across WordPress things between you and I just haven’t been the same. We carried on though, despite everything, and I think we gave it our best shot. But then Facebook came along and our friends began to change too. People stopped posting blogs on Xanga, and instead posted status updates on Facebook. I think we both knew back then that the writing was on ‘the wall.’

It’s just one of those things I guess. An inevitability some might say. We tried to keep things alive, tried to keep the spark there, but I think we both knew that this day would come didn’t we?

We had some good times though. Back in 2004/5 when the community was strong we had some great times. We laughed together and sometimes cried together. Heck, we even threw parties and celebrated our union not once, not twice, but three times! I’ll always look back on those times with fondness Xanga. It was fun while it lasted, and in fairness I think it lasted longer than anyone would have imagined, but now we have to let one another go.

So Xanga, thank you for the good times, the fun times, the memories and the moments. Thanks for being there late at night when I needed to vent, for providing me with a voice when I needed to hear from someone, for laughing at my jokes, and sharing in my joy. Thanks for everything ol’ friend.

Goodbye Xanga.
