After more than a decade of documenting the remarkable life and legacy of Elvis Presley, it is with mixed emotions that I announce my farewell to Elvis-History-Blog.com. While this decision was not made lightly, the once cherished joy of blogging about Elvis has slowly transformed into a mundane task. But fret not, my dear friends, for this is not a goodbye to Elvis, but rather, a new beginning.
A Weighty Volume of Elvis History
Throughout the years, I have poured my heart and soul into this blog. From December 2008, I have published 374 blogs on this very site, along with an additional 65 articles dedicated solely to the King of Rock and Roll. In addition to my own writings, I have also contributed to two Elvis books, various publications, and even CD liner notes. It feels as though the entire decade of my sixties was devoted to Elvis Presley.
Embracing New Horizons
Now in my seventies, I find myself being beckoned by long-awaited non-Elvis writing projects. They whisper in my ear, “It’s now or never.” Without an ounce of regret, I have decided to step back from recording the exploits of Elvis Presley and embark on a brand new journey. But let it be known, my dear readers, that Elvis will forever hold a special place in my heart. His music will continue to resonate with me, and the cherished memories of visiting Graceland and watching his movies will forever bring me joy. Fear not, for I shall still recount these experiences to fellow fans, for they are simply too precious to keep to myself.
A Fond Farewell, But Not Goodbye
Although my days of blogging on elvis-history-blog.com may be coming to a close, the site will remain live on the internet as a timeless tribute to the life and career of Elvis Presley. I still eagerly await your comments and questions, and I promise to respond to as many as I can. To all of you who have been loyal readers throughout the years, and especially to those who have provided me with valuable feedback, I am eternally grateful. Your support has meant the world to me.
Onward to New Horizons
With a heart filled with gratitude and an eagerness to conquer new mountains, I am ready to embark on this new chapter of my writing journey. As I set forth, I carry with me the indomitable spirit of Elvis and the enduring impact he has had on the world. Thank you, my dear friends, for being a part of this incredible journey.
