MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR THE END OF THURSDAY THIRTEEN(SCROLL DOWN FOR THE VERY LAST ONE EVER!! WAHHHH!!)

Well I am just completely flummoxed! I didn't see this coming! I don't know why, but Thursday Thirteen has announced its retirement officially and I didn't see this coming at all! And I'm actually crushed! We were not warned! No one said a word! It just appeared on the website as if out of nowhere? Will someone take over? Will people continue to do it anyway? What's going to fill this huge void left in my heart/slash/life by the Thursday Thirteen? I guess I will actually get stuff done on Thursdays now, instead of obsessing all day over leaving comments and reading comments left for me by other people. But man, this meme is actually how I learned about this blogworld which was a complete secret to me, (I just thought I'd start writing some stuff, I had no idea it was this!!) and I've met such wonderful blogging friends, all thanks to that wonderful tt! I feel like the Thursday Thirteen is my dad pushing me on my bicycle from behind while I'm riding it with no training wheels and then all of a sudden I look back and he has let go without warning! And now I'm to blog and meet other bloggers, all on my very own! I guess it can be done. Maybe I'll move to Wordless Wednesdays, which is equally as addicting. And I can stop thinking about things in my life in terms of lists. Anyway, I'm upset. I can't even call my sister and tell her because she's in class right now, but boy is she going to be as disappointed as I am! I'm having a moment.

I am SO with you -- I stopped by to catch the code around 5PM (ET) and there was the note, so I scrapped all my plans and ...

I hope LeeAnn keeps the hub open, though, so we can all find each other!

She wrote me that she's putting it for sale--so no one can just step in, you have to buy the rights to it. And considering there aren't ads on it or visible income I'm doubtful there will be a line of takers.

But good luck to Leanne and I don't see why people can't continue to do lists without the hub, just continue to label with Technorati tags that say "Thursday Thirteen" and I can find you.

I hope that Thursday Thirteen doesn't go away. I contacted Leanne and I'm determined to rescue the thirteen if I can!

We will have to find another way to indulge this addiction :)

I'm just finding out about it, too and was just as shocked! I didn't even do a TT this week. If only I'd known.
