I know he's not coming back. I know. But it seemed so final when I read this post that I actually began to cry. His was the first blog I ever read. His was the first blog I checked every morning. He was the one who catapulted me into blogging about a year ago. And he has given me something for which I will always be grateful: the slow, painful journey of learning how to think.

I just miss him, that's all.

1 It's always sad when your blogfather goes away.

2 Because by definition according to Frank J., your blogfather is the one who got you into blogging.

5 I only removed him from my blogroll yesterday... It's a big loss, though it would have been even worse before Wretchard got started. Still, I miss those mile-long posts full of huge thoughts that would send me into hour-long Googling and reading sprees. I still remember the one and only time he linked to me, too. -smug- Let's hope Steven can get back to blogging again, sans ankle-biters.

6 He'll return, no one can resist the darkside.... Wait until after the election when all the vile bile has been spewed. His own interests will require him to write, and once it is written, there is nothing left to do but post.

7 The fact that he's putting his energies into writing about anime has me agog. Not that *I* should say anything, but it is still rather like finding out Stephen Hawking has decided to set aside his work on black holes in order to delve deeply into the intricacies of Magic: The Gathering.
