Cokesbury Concludes

I’ve pondered this entry for a while now. Thought about recapping my favorite Cokesbury Party Blog moments. Holding a contest to see which book to roast here next. But, like Plankton from SpongeBob Square Pants, I’m facing reality:

I am small.

The blog will take a hiatus after this post. I may indeed find a new book to skewer, but whether it’s continued as part of the Cokesbury Party Blog or not, I have no idea. That would require some retooling. But I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Here’s another bridge: Nobody comes here. Nobody cares. In nearly a year of busting my brains out on this blog, not a single comment.

But I’m not bitter.

I had fun.

So here at the end of all things, let me end, finally, with this:

 Soon to come, however -- I have, in fact, already started it, but whether or not the posts will follow immediately is unsure; I may take a break between wrapping up Cokesbury and starting this new venture -- is my new venture, the Treasury of Laughter blog, where we'll explore humor from the late 19th and early 20th centuries through the eyes of renowned anthologist Louis Untermeyer. Hope you enjoy it as much as I will.
