Goodbye, Larvatus Prodeo

Author: Helen

If you’re not a reader of Larvatus Prodeo, it’s a group blog where I (sometimes) contributed as a writer, more often hung out and commented. No day would go by without checking in at LP unless I was away from the city and/or an internet connection. From 2005 to 2012 we laughed, snarked, stoushed and pondered our way through the problems of the day.

But everything comes to an end. And as everyone’s favourite commenter, Nabs, says, “If you love something, set it free. Then it’ll shit on your head, fly aimlessly around in circles for a a while and then nest on your roof blocking the gutters.” I think there’s something in that for all of us.

Goodbye, purple blog. Thanks to Mark, Brian, Kim, Tigtog, Anna, Mercurius, Paul, Phil, Robert and many other writers with whom I had the honour to share writing credits, although my output certainly wasn’t equal to theirs. Thanks for having me, and thanks for the great conversations we’ve had over the years.

More tributes to LP from Liam at Orange Juice and Ryvita and Tigtog at Hoyden about Town.

    It is sad, H, but time, as I said. (Thank you for the link).

    Farewell, but not goodbye.

    like an old jumper, fraying at the elbows: serviceable, comfortable, warm and welcoming. or a party-line in a neighbourhood with interesting neighbours. god, i’m going to miss that place & those peoples !
