Dear Followers of Good Golly Miss Molly…
As we said in the 70s, “It’s been real.” When it comes to blogging and websketching, it’s sometimes more like “surreal” and I finally know that I was not meant to get caught in the whirlpool called blogging. This is the last of the Miss Molly websketches.
Lest you think Mr. Snowden and the NSA have influenced my decision to let the Miss Molly site go, it has nothing to do with them. I just find that blogging/sketching is kind of, well…boring. And besides, it clutters up everyone’s inbox.
Thank you for “Following” Miss Molly. I’ve enjoyed the comments and the blog-style banter although there were a few times when some of the “Followers” I heard from seemed more like sales people or stalkers. My blogging guru friends tell me this is just the way of the Internet. I believe that, but I don’t have to live there.
Actually, I hadn’t intended to have a blog/websketch at all, but I bought into the myth that a blog would be necessary as part of my “platform” if I wanted to get published. I now chalk this up to another Urban Legend. I know it’s worked for a few people, but that’s not the kind of publishing I want to do and besides “correlation is not causation.” People are more likely to get published because they have a relative in the industry than because they have a blog.
I wish everyone well with your writing and your families and your hopes and dreams.
For now, Miss Molly has left the building.
