When I saw this in my reader, I was surprised, yet not surprised. Jason Cushman, aka Opinionated Man, has closed down his blog, HarsH ReaLiTy. I read frequently, but didn’t comment as much as I should have. But when I did, he always responded, and he did so with both a wonderful sense of humour and tons of helpfulness. You see, he was actually quite a generous person, helping out other bloggers become better bloggers. Many people loved his blog, and there were those who hated it. Whatever his reasons are for closing down his blog, I wish him luck. I hope to see him around the blogosphere again. Please read what Linda G. Hill has said about him. Lots of people have commented there.
So soon on the heels of the demise of the WordPress site “Mindful Digressions,” hosted by the amazing Doobster, comes the closure of HarsH ReaLiTy, brainchild of our beloved Opinionated Man, Jason Chandler Cushman.
I met Jason shortly after I started writing here on Life in Progress – I commented on one of his posts and was flabbergasted when he responded. From that day forward I knew what it took to gain a following, and quickly learned that there is a community at WordPress – one that is supportive, caring, and friendly. I thought about deleting my post “Save HarsH ReaLiTy,” but I think I’ll keep it open – it illustrates more than anything I’ve seen so far what a fantastic place we have here.
