Save the Dump!

I'm not a morning person.

There's about a 2 hour gap between waking up, and arriving at work, and within that gap I've somehow managed to make myself presentable and drive to work, I just don't remember how. So, this morning when I tried to focus on the screen through my morning cup of coffee, I assumed the latest post on The Daily Dump was just part of some weird dream I was still having.

2 Hours later, and I now find that it was not a dream, but the cold, harsh world of reality, and it sucks. It looks like Dan (Belligerent Intellectual) has decided to take a step back from blogging, and has made his last post to The Daily Dump, and in the 10 hours since his post, the 66 comments from readers already shows that I won't be the only one to miss his well written and humorous posts.

I have to say it was not until reading his blog that I decided to start blogging myself, and although I'm a long way from reaching his level of writing, or following of readers, I would say his writing has been a huge influence on my own site.

I do sincerely hope that we will see him return, either to the Dump, or to a new blog in the future. And if you've not already visited the site, pay it a visit; there may not be more posts to come, but there's still about a year and a half of posts that are well worth reading.

We'll miss you Dan!


  • I saw he'd posted anew last night and thought, "oh goodie" - until I read on. I can't quite decide if it's an elaborate joke or not (in my na├»ve youth I was once burned when Paul Daniels tricked me into believing that he'd killed himself during a horribly gone wrong TV magic trick (in my defense, I was young and stupid and didn't realise the benefits to mankind if this had actually been the case). Anyway.... the scar of something like that stays with you for a long time and it's difficult to believe in things after that, but on the whole I've decided that BI is not joking and the blogosphere is worse off for it.

  • That's the saddest thing I've heard all day.

  • I'm still in a state of shock. I don't believe it is a hoax. I feel like I've lost a friend!
