My Blogging Days are Over

Every beginning has an end. Everything once cherished fades and dies. Everything we fought so hard for, in the end just withers away. This is my farewell blog post to all my avid readers. I don’t want to quit blogging but I need to. My blogging journey will just end anyway, so I’ll end it right now.


Goodbye everyone. Thanks for reading my blog. Please leave your last comment and farewell message below.

Why am I quitting? Because I’m tired. Everybody gets weary and tired. Everybody will eventually quit and will start again. And will quit again, and will start again. And the cycle goes on and on…

  1. W-W-W-W-WHATTTTT?!!! Are you serious? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Just take a break… that’s what I did (a really long one and I’m still on it), but I never wanted to officially call it “quits”. Anyway, whatever you truly finally decide, I wish you all the best in all your endeavours.

    You’ll be missed in the Pinoy blogosphere. I will miss you.

  2. No I don’t think you’d quit. You’d probably go low profile but not quit blogging.

    Whatever your decision is.. good luck! Saan ka pala pupunta ngayon?

  3. …’Everybody will eventually quit and will start again. And will quit again, and will start again. And the cycle goes on and onโ€ฆ’

    maghintay nalnag kami ng bagong ‘concepts’.. pa announce nalnag ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. waaaahh!! bakit ka magqui-quit? sayang naman mga blogs mo jehz… baka naman magre-rest ka lang? hindi tlga magquit uie hehehe… assuming maxado noh… lol…

  5. quit? alam ko kung bakit.. mayaman na daw xa kasi.. joke.. hehe..

    marami lng cguro kaw gngwa ngyn kaya cguro quit/rest muna.. why not add other authors/contributors to this site? hehe..

  6. sus..kakakilala at kakachat lang natin ..tinatanong pa kita kung baket wala kang blogpost sa site mo..tapos pala eh magpapaalam kana..

    hayz….. kahit naman magpaalam ka andito pa din yung site mo.

    God bless you sir on your journey. Will be waiting for your next Start again. I wish to be included soon on your readers list.

    thanks,
    mel ardenio

  7. You’ve inspired a lot of people to blog… You have created many beginnings for your readers (including me)…

    I believe your blogging lives forever with us ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    It’s not the end, it’s the beginning… (parang sherlock holmes) :mrgreen: Goodluck… May the force be with you ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. WEH!? ndi nga kuya Jehz?? I hope that you’re not serious about this. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
    Been returning to your blog for quite some time, only to find out that this “seems” to be your last post.

    Rest ka lng sir Jehz! wag na quit! ๐Ÿ˜€

    But I know di ka magquiquit hhehe ๐Ÿ˜€ (Using “The secret” thinking right now haha ๐Ÿ˜› )

  9. LOL. I’m just realizing you’re actually not that serious about this “quitting” thing. Just some EMO drama phase, right? ๐Ÿ˜› Coz once a blogger, always a blogger! It’s in your blood.

    Anyway, if you really do quit blogging online, you can still always “write” your thoughts on public washroom stalls and outdoor walls. It’s called “graffiti”. LOL. ๐Ÿ˜›

  10. awts…wew

    Paano ka mabubuhay niyan? Sana makasustain ipon mo ng 30years..hehe

    Nagkita kami ng mama mo khapon sa Chowking, tawagan mo namn yun..hehe

    ingat ka Jehz!

  11. awww.. sayang naman ๐Ÿ˜ฅ but it’s okay just enjoy what you have right now kua Jehz…I hope magkita-kita tau ulit ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Kung sure ka talaga, then good luck na lang sa mga plano mo sa buhay.

    At least, less competition na ngayon when it comes to SEO. LOL

  13. I just don’t get it. Why would someone like you quit blogging during the prime of your blogging career?

    If you are tired, then get some rest but do not quit…I don’t see any necessity to quit not unless you are dying….

    Guess what, I also got tired of blogging last year esp when I was obliged to sell my PC due to financial reasons and I assume you know what happened to my family.

    But then, my blogging friends inspired me a lot and suggested to continue and they are even willing to pay for the domain and hosting when they got expired. So eto ako now, nagre-rent sa Internet cafe…

    Sayang naman ang mga pinaghirapan mo, friend. Magaling ka and I know you know it. You will not have 16k+ subscribers if you are not.

    Now, pls tell us that you are only kidding…

    But if this is for real, then I respect your decision and hoping the best for your future endeavor…

    Good luck and Thanks!

  14. But, cabmate, I was planning pa naman to interview you for a magazine article re: earning money through blogging! In the words of Homer Simpson, “D’oh!”

    If my article pushes through (I’m still pitching it), would you still want to be interviewed? Kasi kahit naman you quit blogging na, you still have the experience and know-how to talk about it.

    Be in touch, okay? And I wish you luck. There is life in the real world, after all, and maybe now is the time to unplug the computer and go do some exploring. You’re young. You do need to get some sun, my dear. Get drunk, get high, get laid—just don’t get anyone pregnant!

  15. This is what makes Jehz a one of a kind blogger..Whatever his reasons, I dunno…I just believe new Jehzlau will rise again..new concepts, new stories, fresh ideas..I’ll wait for it..

    Abangan ang susunod na kabanata… :mrgreen:

    Good luck jehz!

  16. I pray for you everyday. You think it’s right to quit when so many thousands are eager to read and are blessed with your articles? When we are tired we sleep and get recharged. Or if its burnout God and His word can fix everything, there’s no impossible thing with our God, isn’t it? We can just come to Him just as we are, with all our circumstance and situation. We don’t need to try to improve anything, God will work when you allow Him. With this i hope and pray that your decision is from your mind(thought of, having been consulted from the Power Who Is Higher than Us and Knows Best) and not from the emotions.

    With much love and prayers, Tita Nelly

  17. ๐Ÿ˜ณ wooot.. bakit naman?? ..hmm.. anyway, I respect your decision.. I want to know you more pa naman.. ^_^..

    aun… God bless on your upcoming career.. and aun.. if you want to blog again.. aun.. madali lang naman.. ikaw pa! ๐Ÿ˜€ hehe

    nice meeting you.. ^_^ aun… ciao! :mrgreen:

    ^_^

  18. Hey jehz,
    I know this feeling. Don’t say goodbye. Just say see you later or see you again ๐Ÿ™‚ I know you will be back. It’s really sickening doing the same thing over and over again. You feel that the passion isn’t there anymore. It doesn’t makes us happy like it used to..Maybe we’ve reached the peak. Take a break and try something new. And i’m sure you’ll miss blogging… and

    “babalik ka rin…babaliiiiikkkkkkk ka rin” hehe

    Relax Jehz! Mag Asian tour ka muna. bee happy ^_^

  19. jehz are you serious? kung ok lang bago ka umalis sa blogging scene e-share mo muna lahat ng SEO knowledge mo para maging legend mo sa aming lahat hehehe at kung isha shutdown mo tong blog mo ipamigay mo nalang para fare ipa raffle mo hihihihi what do you think peepz ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    After earning millions through blogging I cant believe jehz lau is now quitting. He is my idol super bait na idol you really are influential man cheers and good luck to your endeavors…

  20. I understand that feeling bro…You are still my source of blogging inspiration.

    Hey, no goodbyes, only see you later…

    I know its a cycle and i feel great coz I know later you will be back.

    Take a rest, enjoy life and have a vacation maybe?

  21. what??? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    talaga bang seryosohin mo na ang pag-aartista? :mrgreen:

    pero palagay ko naman kumikita ng milyon ang blog/s mo maski wlang post… heheheh pwedeng-pwede…

    btw, gudluck master jehz.. pero sana pahinga ka lang muna or mag-tour ka with someone… relax ba ๐Ÿ˜€

    at kung final desisyon mo na talaga ang mag-quit from blogging, wish you luck nalang master & Godbless!

  22. You and your blog are my inpiration para careerin ko ang blogging, and I will keep in mind everything that I learned from you. Hope to see you some other time. Good Luck.

  23. Ouch. That hurts. Ano ba naman. Bat ganun? If you’re tired get some rest, a vacation. We can wait, you know? If this blog doesn’t excite you anymore, launch something you’re crazy about these days. But who am I to presume what works best for you, right? Go where your heart is. And your community of avid readers and friends will be there for you. If you really must quit, just remember you’re under no obligation to say never again.

  25. Ay babalik ka din for sure! Magpapayaman ng husto yan sa outside world! Naks parang housemate ang dating hahaha. Whatever it is just enjoy and goodluck to you Bro! God Bless. =)

  26. Huuuwaaattt??? Sayang naman ang naumpisahan mo na jehz. But anyway, good luck on your plans in life… For sure aabangan namin ang big come back mo sa showbiz este sa blogging world. Hehehe…

    Thanks for everything dude! Ahooo!!! Ahooo!!!

  27. Hey Jehz, bigla ka naman nagquit.. anyways, I agree with what you said – everybody gets tired. Pero hopefully you’ll get back again kasi magaling ka ser! I still hope that you could teach us stuff so that your legacy would still go on. Thanks for the site, it was a nice start for me to learn blogging.

  28. I don’t believe this… Maybe gusto mo lang magpahinga… Kasi kung totoo sinasabi mo, siguro malaki na income mo… it can probably sustain everything you need (smile)… waah… ayaw cge komedya dha, Jehz…

  29. you probably have gone miles in this web platform and needed a fresher one? but i think you will be leaving great resources and tokens for your fellow bloggers ๐Ÿ™‚ not to mention the SEO tips.

  31. Parang ang hirap mag-quit sa isang bagay kapag andun ka pa sa taas. Pero kung ‘yan talaga ang gusto mo! Sayang lang talaga. Isa ka pa naman sa reason kung bakit ako nagba-blog. :mrgreen:

  32. Awww jehz I hope it’s going to be just a rest and you’ll go back really soon. Just wanted to let you know that you really inspired me with blogging since last year. Fitz, Macuha, and you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. gusto lang siguro magpahinga ni idol, matagal na din sya sa blogging. there’s only so much money a man could want. ๐Ÿ˜€

  35. Hi Jehz, many of us will be missing you especially nga you inspired us the way how you write very seriously that people draw near to you. Seeking some of your advices, reading from your blog that makes them happy about your jokes ๐Ÿ™‚ following your advice regarding on how they will improve their own blog and get tons of traffic, etc….

    Well, sorry if I am not visiting your blog much kasi nga busy din me about my other online business and now that is growing in numbers even in my blogging concept are now fading away. But, their is always butt ๐Ÿ™‚ hehehe…We never stop learning anyways, so why don’t we set aside those problems and trials that coming in our way and let God handle it. Just draw closer to him and ask his guidance and I know he will direct your path in good ways and many people will be bless about your blogging style or blogging strategy. I have more to say pero baka magsawa ka ng magbasa at eh delete ito woooot wooot… ๐Ÿ™‚ I learn this from you..woot woooottt. Para tuloy akong nauutot na hahahaha…Just to let you know we are here your avid fans to support you in case you need some personal advices too.

    I just leave a shout out here kasi nakita ko nga sa blog regarding of what is happening. Your belong pa naman sa “Top 25 Bloggers Online” sa list ko. In case you change your mind then, you know what you do…Just call my name…and I’ll be there… ๐Ÿ™‚ wooot wooot…. God Bless you and in all your ways acknowledge him.

    Your new friend,
    Julius

    • Woooooooooooot! haba ng comment u ah. hehehe. Thanks for including my in your list.. yay!

      Oo nga naman, we really never stop learning. .wooot wooot… Dapat sabihin mo lahat, di ako nag dedelete no.. wooooooooooot! Say everything you want to say. Reply ka lang sa comment thread. hahaha! :mrgreen:

  36. Awww…sad to hear you’re “quitting”, just when I plan to ask you for advise and tips for my blogsite pa naman ๐Ÿ™ But I am sure one day soon, there will be an even bigger, brighter, and bolder JEHZ blogsite, and for sure it will be on my blogroll as well. Good luck with your new endeavors in swingin’ S’pore! And more good chow at Marche for you too (I also enjoyed a yummy lunch there once when I visited S’pore eons ago!) take care and God bless!

  37. Alam mo kung ano ka Jehz? Nakakaasar ka! Pagkatapos mo kaming eentertain, patawanin, bigyan ng advice at kung anu-ano pa, kasama na ang kalukuhan, iiwanan mo kami. Asar ka. Paano na lang ang yay, woot, nyok at ang blue stick man? Paano na sila? Nakakaasar ka talaga. Bakit ka ba ganyan? Mag-aasawa ka na rin ba? Mag-aabroad ka na sa pluto? O kakandidato ka? Hehe. Basta asar ka.

  38. Hi Jez,

    I don’t understand why all of the sudden you’re saying goodbye but I wouldn’t ask why anyway. I don’t think I am in the position to ask for a reason. Lungkot lang, kasi I look up to you in blogverse, you know what I mean. I haven’t reached yet my destination in this blogverse and you’re saying goodbye now? You might have big reason or reasons behind it. Sana I can still ask you questions if my inquiry ako, hehehe.

    Teka nga pala, panu yun domain ko, yearly di ba dapat ako magbayad? Arg, sorry ha? Nabigla lang talaga ako.

    But I still hope for the best.

    A friend,
    Fernand Yim

  39. sometimes its not all about money… its just sad that some of the people always think of money. when you stopped doing profitable they will say you already have a lot. but the truth is, you are already tired of doing things that you used to do for a long time. why? because you came to a point that these things wont make you happy anymore. sometimes its not all about money, it is something what makes you happy and living the true meaning of it.

  40. Ooy Jehz, waaah, well atleast na kilala kita. For good na ba to? Well anyway, no matter what always look for things that could make you happy. Yun lang naman talaga yung worth finding for dito sa mundo… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Teka you’ve quitted blogging so full time corporate slave kana? Nice… I thought you’ve resigned from your job. Ito lang pala…
      Good Luck Always… ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Jehz,

        Thanks kagabi hope we can talk more via messenger or something or better face to face hirap sa text eh hehehe
        Wag ka mag quit sa pag bablog kita mo dami mo iiwanang mga fans marami malulungkot at isa na ako dun.

        Test if my gravatar is working…

        Thanks again,
        r0ck

      • @elmot: He’s giving up blogging tapos paglulutuin mo. Hayaan muna nating maka-recover. Or ma-inspired uli. Ahehehe.

        @Jehz: Comment count as of this writing: 156. Ahem, ahem.

        Question: Are you running for congress? governor? Wala lang. Still puzzled.

        Ay thanks nga pala sa keychain. Got it na. Cool!

  41. natatawa talaga ako sa quitter na to.. laging nagrereply sa comments..hehehe

    btaw Jehz, if its true, then thank you for sharing thoughts and idea of blogging to me when i was just a member of our DOST community. Because of you, I learned and CBS exists.

  48. :mrgreen: Maybe he’s just worried for what will be the result in a person having excessive blogging coz excessive time spent in front of the computer among bloggers are likely to be displacing activities required for healthy development and increasing their risk of obesity, risk of heart disease, harmful effects on vision and overexertion such as backs and wrists. Individuals who are obese have a 50 to 100 percent increased risk of premature death from all causes, compared to individuals with a healthy weight.
    To minimize the risk, it is advises to limit time spent with computers and other media to perhaps no more than one to three hours a day, bloggers should also consider a physical activity, Maintain a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise.

    “Don’t forget good diet and break the habit of smoking”.=)

  49. Wow kakavisit ko lang sa site na ito a few days ago ngayon magqquit ka na hehe. Anyway good luck sa kung anuman ang gagawin natin dyan ๐Ÿ™‚
