I hadn’t planned to do a Thursday Thirteen today, but I just found out that this is the last one!! The powers that be at the TT hub have decided to close down shop. It looks like there is some possibility of someone else buying the rights and resurrecting it.
I’ve been wrestling with some of the weekly memes. I enjoy doing them and it doesn’t take much time to do them. But I feel if I want people to read my entries, I ought to read other people’s. And I think that’s part of the purpose of TT — to introduce bloggers to each other. But when there are 200+ people who participate in the Thursday Thirteen — there’s just now way to visit all of them, even half of them, and get anything else accomplished. So in trying to figure out where the balance is, I’ve pulled back a bit. But I will miss it. I’ve enjoyed the chance to share something serious or silly with other readers, the real live comments! 😀 (My blog stats show I have readers, but there are just a few who comment when I write my heart out about something. But those who visit and comment on the weekly memes like TT, Wordless Wednesday, the Saturday Photo Hunt, etc., make me feel like I’m not so alone in my corner of the blogosphere.), the weekly visit with some of the “regulars” I’ve come to know through TT, the interesting funny, or thoughtful things I have read on others’ lists.
For this finale for Thursday Thirteen as we know it, here are my favorite past TT posts:

It’s been fun! Don’t be a stranger!
