I’ve spent the past few days pondering what to do with the blog.  Do I want to continue blogging?  If so, how?  Under what conditions?  You don’t spend a year of your life engaged in the same daily routine without a bit of difficulty detaching yourself.  But daily blogging has been taxing.  And what about my deadline?  This blog has come to its pre-arranged conclusion.  If we don’t honor the rules we set for ourselves, how can we expect others to?  The solution? 

A new blog: Confessions of a Debtor in Paradise.

  3. I’m new to your blog. Too bad it is ending. Do what I did – default on all unsecured debt. With no assets you might as well default on your educational debt, too. It’s legal. Moral is a different story…then again, the government and banks waste our tax dollars so it’d anybody’s guess. Man up. Think of yourself like a government or corporation. Strategic default. There are thousands of people who do this. With that debt, your credit is already destroyed. Even if it were not, banks are not really lending.

  4. I see your mother has mortgaged her house whilst you are parading about in a new Jeep and vacationing in the USVG. Pathetic.

  5. Poor you, iPhone, new Jeep, exotic vacations. I wonder who is taking the piss here …

  6. You have to, have to write a book. Iowa Writer’s Workshop/ Michener/ etc would give you full ride + stipend. Or you could just write it on that island paradise.

    I believe in you.

  7. @Adam: thanks for the info and the vote of confidence. I hadn’t heard of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop. Definitely an idea.
