Steph

Steph is hanging up her keyboard.
The blogverse will be porer for her leaving but I understand why. She has been struggling with it for a while and has outgrown the girl she was. As much as I like to read about her misadventures and vicariously live the life of a self assured 20 something Sydney girl she doesn't have to pressure herself to post so that I have something to laugh at over coffee.

But what a girl - Carry and the clowns from Sex and the city are a fiction. This girl is the real deal. Smart, sassy and in control of her own destiny. But, I guess because of her outrageous, funny and at time appallingly lewd posts and commentary she reached a dizzying level of internet fame - with all the hatters and hangeroners and chattel that goes with that. The fact that she was writing about her own life and getting so much (de/con-structive) feedback would wear anyone down.

Nothing is forever. Over the years many of my fave bloggers have hung up their keyboards but this is a particularly acute parting for me.

I will miss you.

Good luck in whatever you do in life Steph - I have no doubt that you will wring as much fun and joy from this world as you can and will continue to touch the people around you with your humor.

Bye

Surprised, why? -> that I would say something nice?

If blogging was a pee-pee, Steph was its foreskin.
Her circumcision is a painful event that has scarred us all...

I had missed this post until just now. Reading it has made me sad all over again. The blog just isn't even half as much fun now that she's gone.
