“Don’t call it a comeback. I’ve been here for years.”

I am pleased to announce that I will be coming back to Modblog as a full time contributor in the very near future.

I was motivated to do so by the recent Stay Calm event in Philly. That weekend truly renewed my passion for this community and, apparently, I was not alone in that feeling. Since then, I have seen a huge resurgence of BME events and interest. There have been talks of a big BME Fest reunion, several smaller events have already been planned, Shawn Porter has started writing for Modblog again and overall this community of ours has really started to come back together. We are no longer purely reminiscing over the good old days, we are beginning to move forward as well.

Shannon’s death was felt by our entire community a community which he, moreso than anyone else, brought together. In honor of our fallen friend I say we do our best to keep this site of his, and the community which it spawned, going well into the future. So please submit images, stories and videos to  [email protected]. Or, if you prefer, you can submit stuff directly to Modblog on the Facebook fan page I created by tagging it as the Modblog page, posting to the page’s wall, messaging me through that account or emailing me at [email protected]

Keep on keeping on, my friends.

  1. Great to see more posts on Modblog! Haven’t been around from the beginning but hope that I can still have many more years of new entries! :)

  2. I always do wish this place would be as popular as it was 4 years ago…I mean I know everyone is still around, but it would be nice for future ‘modbloggers’ to be able to have equal amazing experiences on here, and IAM. I’ve met so many amazing great friends, and people who I love so dearly that it would be nice for future people interested in the same things to be able to meet other people they wouldn’t have normally stumbled across without these websites. To the future! :D

  3. Glad to have you back, buddy. Such an awesome weekend and such a….weird coincidence that he happened to be in the city.
