A few years ago, I co-organized a blogger's meetup in Auckland, New Zealand. A new member showed up to one meeting and began telling me and my co-organizer about his blog. He specifically mentioned the large number of daily visits his blog got &mdash; a number that many bloggers would kill for.

This is the last blog post I'll be publishing in this space. Probably ever.
There are a number of reasons for that, but mainly I'm, in the words of Derek Sivers, [giving up something I love](https://sivers.org/quit). And that something is blogging.
Believe it or not, I love blogging. I've been blogging since the early 2000s and have enjoyed it immensely. However, it's starting to become more of a chore than it should be. Also, blogging (and freelancing in general) hasn't been working out for me for a while now. I'm finding that the benefits and the rewards of blogging are no longer commensurate with the effort involved.
So, it's time to turn the page on the blogging chapter of my life. Will I blog again? My crystal ball is cloudy, but I won't say *never again*. For now, blogging and I are parting ways.
You'll be able to find this blog in this spot until January 1, 2018. That's when the domain expires; I won't be renewing it. However, all of my blog posts will be available (as Markdown files) on [GitLab](https://gitlab.com/scottnesbitt/blogging) or [GitHub](https://github.com/ScottWNesbitt/Blog-Posts), depending on which service you prefer.
The posts that make up this blog are licensed under a [Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 4.0 license](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/), and will remain that way.
In case you're wondering, I won't be giving up writing entirely. For the foreseeable future, much of my written work will be over at [Opensource.com](https://opensource.com/users/scottnesbitt). My writing may also pop up elsewhere on the web from time to time. And I have a couple or three books left in me, which I hope to publish by early or mid 2018.
Well, that's that. Thank you for reading this blog, and [its predecessor](https://woaprewound.wordpress.com), over the years. I hope that you found what I wrote to be useful, interesting, and enjoyable.
