earlier this year, i did a fun interview with some friends from north of the 49th parallel. (the interview can be seen either here or here.) (sorry, old joke.) one of the questions asked was, "what's the big idea behind the 15 ideas blog?" i answered far too honestly that there is none.

that's what i kind of liked about the blog. and what i kind of didn't like. after 400+ posts, you'd think an idea or purpose would've emerged by now, but it hasn't. the blog was sometimes funny, but not often enough. occasionally insightful, but less so than other blogs. worst of all, it was taking up just enough time to keep me from getting to other projects.

so, let's go do something else now. c'mon. it'll be fun.

oddly, I just came to the exact same place with mine at the same time. good luck in the future.

OK, bye.

@colleen ha! I can totally relate to your heartfelt response.

@adam yeah, maybe there's just something in the air, but it's definitely time. now that we both have voids to fill, maybe we should do a project together. you wouldn't happen to know how to pilot a Czech helicopter, would you? because I have an idea...

does this mean you'll be putting your energies back into snuggiehaiku.com?

OMG, it's all my fault! This is the former Kelly Bunch, ALT media planner extrordinaire (for four months before the bottom fell out of that venture...)

I just stumbled on you through LInked In while trying to remember the name of your most recent agency and thought I'd add your blog to my reader--last week!! Now you're folding up shop too...maybe I am a harbinger of bad luck for you!? :) I'll stay tuned for whatever is next, and Go State.

Like you're not going to come up with some other goofy thing that I will read...

@dan - good god, no.

@kelly o - it's all for the better. i couldn't have taken the pressure of a fourth reader. looks like you have your own gig now - hope it's going well.

@colleen - ;)

endless observation.
