Sohumborn Decision Creates a Hole in Humboldt Blogging World
Wings across the Shadows
Dipping in and out of the (of necessity) shadowy marijuana culture, for a few short months, Sohumborn provided the North Coast with vivid stories about a world that most people have been unable to comprehend.
In the last couple of weeks, several Humboldt bloggers ( Raincrow and Ekovox) have chosen to step back from the very public world of online blogging. Last night, Sohumborn, that talented and thoughtful writer deleted her blog leaving a empty, gaping hole where her fictional stories had provided a 3 dimensional glimpse into another very real world.
She left a brief note on another post of mine and I’m transfering it here.
I will deeply miss my blog. I have gained so much from the exchanges with each and every one of you. I knew all along that this may be a short term hobby. I will continue to write and I hope to offer my stories again someday in a new forum. Thank you all so much for a providing a wonderful respite from the daily grind. I must concentrate on my offline life for a while, please forgive me.
Her stories though are not dead. Once something is on the internet it lives forever. If anyone wants to access them, they just have to google — site:sohumborn.wordpress.com sohumborn at the end of each entry is a blue link Cached. Clicking the link will take you to a stored version of her story. It may not be the most uptodate but each link accesses a treasure of words that have given so much insight into the culture here and so much pleasure to her readers.
I am going to try and transfer the comments people have left on that earlier blog for her to this one but I’m a bit unsure of the best way to do it so feel free to leave advice.
