Hypergeek, a shaggy dog blog that went on to become a popular site for news and reviews of comics, has reached its end. Owner and sole content provider, Edward Kaye, has decided that, after 3 years of ceaseless devotion to Hypergeek, it is time to move on. In a statement on July 13, Kaye expressed regret on leaving as well as hope in keeping his hand in reviewing comics when time permits.
This news really hits home for me. I am doing what Mr. Kaye has been doing. I have not taken it to the level that he did nor do I expect to do so, not quite as heroically as he did. My suggestion to him is to keep coming back to the comics news game now and then. Either that, or run as far away from it as possible! What is more disgusting to fathom than a mind boggling high number of posts about, well, about anything really? Unless, of course, there’s more behind the posts than a mere dedication to posting, you know. I’ve always held that I don’t really give a hoot whether or not you like what I have to say. If you want to pitch a fit over it, be my guest. If you don’t care, fine. But, the thing is, if the writer is engaged in what he or she is doing, and doing it well, there will be plenty of readers out there who will pick up on it. So, Mr Kaye, life is short. I salute your wanting to return to your passion of music. No one will ever care as much about your writing as you do. However, if you have something worthy to say, then don’t sweat it, the readers will follow. And you, sir, certainly know that!
