Only three days? Lucky.
Last night I had a strange dream where I was being held captive (I watch too much SVU). I was sitting in a room in a row of armchairs with his other 3 hostages. The bad guy told a boy to get up and I saw he was wearing a t-shirt that said "Turner-Neal's Bar & Grill" and I was just about to ask if he was related to Chris from 2b1b when I woke up! NOW I WILL NEVER KNOW
You meant Luray Caverns, right?...
Off for Hanukkah this week?
I'm curious....where did all those people that leave comments go? Come back 2b1b people! I miss you!!!...sigh...back to work.
I think they've given up. I've never complained before but the reality is that without consistency, the fanbase will leave. This is the first time I've checked in over a week and I use to refresh 2birds1blog approximately 3 billion times a day (conservative estimate) in case something new posted.
.. That was way harsh, Tai.
I guess they're just super busy? I used to be the same way re: refreshing... But I still come back every day :) I have faith in you meg and chris!and BTW - the books are great!
"way harsh tai" LOVE the reference I say that all the time!
I really enjoyed The Misanthrope's Guide to Life, and also your blog. Hint.
So much for going back to posting Monday-Friday. I just can't wait for the new outlandish excuse.
It will include something like tripping over Obama and busting her hand open and throwing up all over the first lady at the sight of the bone and blood. And she just hasn't been "able to tell that story, because it's just not funny" to her yet.
Why are 2b1b readers a bunch of assholes? Good god, if you don't have something nice to comment --- KEEP IT TO YOURSELF! Nobody wants to read a bunch of negativity here .... get lost.
So blogs are only allowed to have positive comments, even when they don't deserve them? That's not biased whatsoever...
I agree with Cass. Next time I have mine I'm going into hibernation. It will be better for everyone. Also, more posts! Holiday family stories are the best!
people can say whatever they want (obviously) but I personally think it's stupid and a waste of time to complain about a lack of posts. it's a little disappointing, sure, but why do so many people feel so entitled to new material and endless entertainment? surely you can't have all donated to that paypal, so you're not owed anything. and even if you did, it's a donation, not a required fee. expecting a guarantee out of that is your own fault.
^Wasting time complaining about people wasting time complaining.
I donated money to you. At the time, I did so happily, in exchange for the entertainment you provided me a few times a week. I felt like I owed it to you, because you were providing me a service. Now, I feel like a chump who got scammed out of her money on the internet. I sent it away hopefully and get absolutely nothing in return. You've turned me into the 80-year-old ladies who fork over the cash for some bullshit charity when the con men come a-callin'. Shame on me, I guess.
Just sad. You had more posts in 2008.
You guys obviously don't give a shit about this blog anymore, just admit it.
I think this was only no-post-month. Rest. Time to create ideas. Coming back strong into the new year. I like it.
the "Chris is typing" in the image is frustratingly ironic
I was going to buy your books as a belated Christmas gift to myself. I've since decided not to. If you cannot even dedicate the most minimal effort into the vehicle which launched your writing career, or acknowledge that that vehicle has run its course, I cannot be bothered to type in my debit card number to purchase the books.
PLEASE COME BACK!
Well, no posts on Jan 3-5, so I assume that Meg actually IS menstruating in a cave. Which is cool, I guess. What kind of cave-menstruating shenanigans will she have gotten up to? I can't wait to read about them when the bloggers return!
I think Tessa means IF the bloggers return...
Every time I check the blog for new posts I feel an urge to click the X and exit out of that chat box...lol. We miss you, I'm sure you're busy and have things going on. If you went back to a regular scheduled and did some monetizing I'm sure things would pick up.
Today is the 6th.... where you at meggles?
Don't know why people are complaining. This blog is by far my favorite to read. So it's been awhile since the last post...get over it or even better, read their book. If you are too cheap to buy their book, then read the archives. WTF!I miss their MERCH section of the website. I guess someone finally bought Kevin Yang and they have yet to find a replacement.
I miss the days when there were no posts from the authors, and the comment section was what you came to see. People complaining, people defending the authors, people fighting with each other, it was so entertaining! There'd be 60, 70+ comments on one post. Now there's hardly any commenters left, they haven't posted 3 weeks and there's barely 30 comments. It's sad.
^ Agreed, I come back here just to read the comments every day (I've accepted there will probably be no post).
wow, this blog BLOWSSSS
I wish if they were going to stop posting they would just let us know. Then I wouldn't be so bummed every time I check. Which has gone from multiple times a day to once a week, maybe. I have bought the books, but like the blog better. I don't see what the problem is about complaining that something you love is no longer around. Seems to make sense to me. They did post for our entertainment, so I think its reasonable to be upset. Anyways, guess we'll see soon enough.
i forgot about kevin yang... shit.
Actually, let's discuss the book. I read Misanthrope after Meg posted it was available for free kindle download. I read it and I kind of found it..... kinda meh. Some parts of it seemed really forced, like the actual needing to have some sort of structure limited them. I think the blog is so much better. Thoughts?
+1 Well said! The structure I think did really limit it. Blog is a million times funnier.
I enjoyed the book but I agree that it felt more constrained than the blog, which is of course both a positive and a negative.A positive in that a blog allows you to talk ad nauseam about just about anything you please and negative in that without the constraints and pressures (of the book publishing business) there can be long periods of no productivity or content.I sincerely hope you are both well Meg and Chris and I hope you come back soon.
7 days away from No Post Month!
We're going to need a serious explanation for this abandonment!
...is anyone else getting genuinely worried? there's usually at least a frantic apology by this point...
Of course we're not worried. Meg's still tweeting. She just doesn't care about the blog anymore until it's time to sell copies of their 3rd book.
yeah, I'm not buying the new book b/c I didn't like the first one nearly as much as the blog and now they don't even blog anymore. I get that people take breaks for the holidays and other stuff but at least other bloggers let you know beforehand and tell you when to expect them back. That's all anyone is asking for
i donated 10 bucks when Meg was begging for money. I downloaded the 1st book for free. Not crazy about it, but at least I broke even. Won't be buying the second book. I like the blog much more. It seems to me that they could actually make money off the blog, if they committed themselves to blogging 5x a week. Through advertisers, or a monthly fee or something. I'd pay 5 bucks a month to have a new post every day, M-F. Get 1,000 people to pay 5 bucks a month, and they make a pretty good living.
Bummer. :/ My friend just turned me on to this blog and now it has stalled out. Hope you guys come back!
actually meg hasn't twittered in 7 days, and the last one was about an emergency...maybe we should be worried?
oh dear... hopefully everything is ok
I love the bitching that goes on in these comment sections. It's a blog. It's not that serious. Highly entertaining and enjoyable to read? Yes. But a national crisis when the posts stop for awhile? No.Hope everything's okay! We're anxiously waiting for your next post! :)
And I get tired of the consummate defending of Meg and Chris. They have stated on several occasions that they were (are?) trying to make writing their career. They have posted donation links, spent blog posts advertising their writing, and complained consistently about their lack of income. Although they are clearly very talented writers I think this blog has proven that they do not have the drive or motivation to be "self employed".
^ i'm really glad someone finally said that
I think Meg tried to be "self employed" for over a year and it sounds like it didn't exactly keep her rolling in the Kashi like Scrooge McDuck, so she's been trying to find a real job and/or go to grad school. Imagine that, the real world and real obligations can take precedence. If she's not supporting herself doing this, how long is she required to stay in order to make you all happy? Until she has to move back in with her parents? If you donated, it was because you appreciated what she'd already written; it's kind of bullshit to turn around and say, "Well I donated once so why isn't she making me laugh forever?" There's like 700 posts on this blog, go back and read a few for a second time. Not everything awesome lasts forever - sometimes it only lasts one season, just ask Joss Whedon.
@Chicago JamesFuck yeah Joss Whedon!
Of course there's nothing wrong with Meg trying to find a another job or going back to grad school. People aren't annoyed about that (which, let's be real, probably isn't happening), they're annoyed about the fact that neither Meg nor Chris have the common courtesy to just say, "Welp, we're done with the blog." Instead, they disappear for weeks at a time, and then come back with some outlandish story/excuse for their absence in the hopes that it will appease their remaining fans. Everyone's busy, but how long does it take to type a short fucking post saying you won't be back for X amount of time? It's all about the sales of a few mediocre books.
yeah, i could've dealt with the constant book-shilling if the books were good, but they blew. hard. i wasted ten bucks.
You’ve got some interesting points in this article. I would have never considered any of these if I didn’t come across this. Thanks!.pushautogram |

Positive site, where did u come up with the information on this posting? I'm pleased I discovered it though, ill be checking back soon to find out what additional posts you include.girlsky.net |
Knowing that frequent smartphone use can (relatively quickly) change our brain activity could open up new doors for research on how our technology habits shape the way we think.
Consider getting some Fb advertisement. It is possible to customize the ad in order that only folks of certain age or perhaps gender criteria notice. There are usually no long-term responsibilities required. You can easily stop the ad away from whenever you would like tovoltaclubfitness |
Great information on your site here. I love this post because we can get some useful information from your blog. I expect more post from you guys.http://www.foodandjazz.com |
Howdy! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!http://www.remanonfood.com |
