Decision... I quit.

I started this blog 4 months ago and wrote 66 posts now. The amount of visitors has increased ever since. This blog reached the top 5 on chemical blogspace now, but I quit anyway. I do not have to write a thesis or lost my job, but I think I have done my trick. Sure, there are still a lot of 'top 5 lists' I can make up, and there is still a lot of science history to tell but that will be more of the same stuff....

Blogosphere is quite amazing. The moonshine post still attracts visitors, directed here by google and most blogs I read have this blog on their blogroll.

I really enjoyed writing all the nonsense like the Top 5 bearded chemists, LCMS analysis of coffee and Ageing and poses in chemistry. (My personel favourite is the article titles analysis-post.) I am fond of discovering the origins of the Vigreux collumn, the Rotavap and Markovnikov's rule, but when I have to think and do research for another post I think it is over.

So... this is the end... Well... the end for this blog, but not for blogosphere, one in ten thousand just started and you should go there. Carbon base curiosities will find new topics, I am sure. Chemical musings will post irony forever, a great blog as well! Jungfreudlich, very amusing and Kutti promised to write more in English, I am looking forward to it. Oh yeah, visit Homebrew and Chemistry, Chemgeek knows the meaning of life, beer is more important than chemistry.

Derek and Paul will be there forever, I think.

Visit the whole blogroll, kinasepro, tot. synth. etc. etc.

Ohhh shit, ψ*ψ, happy birthday!... a bit late... sorry.

I hope all you people enjoyed this blog.

The final post will be here within a week.

Cheers!

I am very sad to hear about your decision :-( Unfortunately, I spotted your blog too late (only a few weeks ago) but during this time, I have been looking forward for every new post! Your blog was and still is really great!
There is definitely no better Top-5 Blogger on the Internet!!!

All the best, man!

There are always other things to talk about than Top 5 lists...

Nooooo! I liked Synthetic Environment!

I guess this leaves me to cover all the glassware, then. Too bad. You were better at it.

Paul said...

I hope you don't delete the blog. Let it live for eternity, and write posts whenever the mood strikes you. We'll keep listening to your RSS feed so we won't miss any of your glorious triumphs.

Don't quit! Just pull a Milkshake and post once a month.

Beth said...

Sorry to lose you, but thanks for the work you've done. It's been truly great.

ZAL said...

Noooooo, now I have to erase it from my bookmarks list...and I am a very lazy chemist! Anyway all the best, hope you'll soon find again some motivation and provide many more top 5 lists!

Chemgeek said...

OK, very funny. You got us.

Now, jump up and say "April fool!!!!"

What? It's only March.

Ah, crap.

Hate to see you go. It's been fun, and maybe Kinasepro has a point.

Jordan said...

I'm with Kinasepro. Don't close down. Post when you feel inspired to, but don't abandon us completely.

There are lots of cool chemistry blogs, but I always thought this one was one fo the coolest. I'll miss it. With any luck, as others have mentioned, you'll leave it around, and maybe someday find your muse again. Until then, all the best.
Cheers
