Sunrise doesn’t last all morning;
A cloudburst doesn’t last all day.
— George Harrison
It was five years ago today that we launched One Man’s Tofu, and in celebration we are announcing that we are, once and for all, closing up this franchise for good.
There are a number of reasons for this, but chief among them is our waning interest in maintaining a blog, in politics, and in writing in general.
It’s been a great ride (802 posts over five years), and we are grateful to all of you who have followed this blog, especially those of you who have followed it since the very beginning.
But five years is long enough, and it’s time for us to move on. As we haven’t contributed much in the past few months, we are long overdue for pulling the plug, and this seems like as good a time as any. Maybe better than most, actually, since it allows us to tie things up in a very neat package — a perfect 5 years.
And, as blogs go, we think that OMT was quite an achievement — not as good as some, a bit better than a lot of them, and far superior to the overwhelming majority of shit that people are posting online.
Even if we do say so ourself.
And we do.
It’s the real deal, this time … we won’t be coming back.
To OMT anyway — we might consider doing something like this again in the future, but not right now, and not in this format.
So, we’re OTFD, as we used to say in the USAF.
Thanks for reading.
