its one of the earliest blogs i have read since i started blogging. and i must say that reading it was one of the most interesting things i found online. it is a full length novel, a biography that tells the story of a young man struggling to keep up with the life that he has chosen and his lover, which was the main purpose of his blog.
if there is one way to describe it: the site was full of emotions and personalities that often times, i felt that it is already the personalities controlling the author, which makes it more effective. in short, the blog created a personality of its own.
personally, its hard not to notice this blog and to detach yourself the moment you started reading it. it is like a soap opera, full of interesting characters, conflicts, adventures, "climax" and morals, which makes every audience/ reader crave for more.
it is addictive, because every audience can relate into it. especially if you find your emotions as one of the most troublesome factors in your life. it explains how it cripples us, how most of the time it overcomes our focus and how we struggle to live out with it, just like his, which happens to make this site successful.
but aside from the blog and its entries, it is actually the friendship that i truly treasure from it. mugen was the first person i met in blogging. and for a person like me, who refuses to meet up, he was able to convince me to make an exception and up to this very moment, he is still able to convince me that meeting him up was one of the best decisions i made.
but the other day, mugen posted its farewell post after five years of running. for me, it was mixed emotions. and somehow, it reminded me of the time when will and grace or queer as folk aired their last episode for their final season. but the main difference was mugen didn't inform its readers about its upcoming closing. in a way, i know mugen has his own reasons for doing this. and perhaps, one of them is the difficulties he might encounter from his readers once he informed about it, knowing he has a vast list. and from that, i believe that he have successfully mastered and understood how the blog world works. thus, he have made his last queenly walk gracefully with an openned majestic peacock tail on his back.
nonetheless, i felt bad because of the thought that the next time, i am going to go online and check his site, i will just find the same goodbye post on it. but on the otherhand, i am glad to know that he was able to resolved the main purpose of his blog.
i'll miss the tasteful drama, the worthwhile escapades, the untold stories, the subtle hurt, the candid stories, the outstanding word plays, the titillating experiences, the intricate descriptions and narration that only you can do, the treasure chest in every post, my airport to other blog sites, and above all, the personalities that have already found their places in me.
i know that this will not be the last time, i'll hear from the author again. with his passion to write, i know that someday, another mugen will emerge and this time it will be better from the best that he have shared to us.
