The Sheriff's Back

So I’m back from the dead but only temporarily.  What I learned from vacation is my blog days are wrapping up. Look my blog got pulled 2 times by blogger. Now I got a chance to wrap things up on my terms.  I think I come a long way from where I was when I started but who knows ya know?  I mean wheather yor gay straight or whatever – do you get to a point where your toally all together?  So over the next week or so I’m gonna wrap things up. Maybe a week. Maybe 2. But I wanna close things out right.

  3. Say it ain't so buddy! I understand that this blog takes up so much of your time, but it also takes up our time as well. Someone will have to take up where you leave off, but I doubt that they will do it as well. You've been a great inspiration and sounding board for so many people! Love ya, dude. Aufan

  4. The news is bittersweet, Scott. On the one hand plenty of people are going to miss you. You provided a pretty unique forum for people to come together to talk and try to understand one another; a very good thing. But, I hope the blog has served its purpose for you. That you've gotten what you need from it and can move on, wiser and more confident.

    Best of luck, Scott

  5. You have done a great service for many people. You are a man that I admire and will certainly remember. I have a feeling that you will be remembered by everyone that reads your blog. You'll pop up in our minds, somewhere, at someplace. Even in the shower,or when we are exercising. It'll be cool. We'll see someone hot and think of something you wrote. We will be sending you thoughts. We have all had the opportunity to learn something here. I send you hugs. A big one!

    We have all seen where someone makes a toast and says, "Here's one for you." Well, I think we should all make a toast and say, "We will do someone for you." How's that, buddy?

  6. Scott, ultimately, it will be your decision, you have always done things the right way on the blog, always letting some have their opinion by commenting...and yes always great pics,(another one on your first day back, he trying to decide how to take care of that morning wood) and I'll be checking everday to see what you have decided.

    I for one hope your change your mind, but I can only guess, I how much work is involved or maybe you think you have come as far as you can with your blog,, but for crying out loud "have you got spanked yet"?, don't leave till then... lmao...

    We really do love your blog

  7. Hey Scott,

    Even I don't have anything snarkie to say (except you still have a little dick). You will be missed.

  8. Scott,
    I'd like to say something else. You had mentioned as to how your blog was closed down. I would venture to guess that the reason it was closed was, others are jealous of you. You have dealt with REAL ISSUES here. You didn't get on here and make it porno. You created an avenue where guys can come and open up. Talk about who they are and what they are and hopefully, feel a heck of a lot better about themselves. I for one believe that we have learned from one and other. Hopefully, we will be a much better person for the opportunity. That's my two cents, for now.

  9. Always be true to yourself my friend. You know we enjoy your outlook on things... controversial or not. You will be missed... I hope you check in on us every now and then... mix things up!

  10. Others are much more literate than me in expressing their thoughts of your blog going away. I for one will regret that day... you've shared some great insights that have helped us grow in our understanding. And I think so many people have grown with your sharing. That - you can be very proud of!

    You will truly be missed - but not forgotten...

  11. Cool-It's nice to see the cogs of responsibility and decision making at work. Scott- your blog is the only one I read regularly. I missed it when it was gone, happy when it came back. I hope the best for you and your brood. You took time out with them to spend with us and we appreciate it! You've given many of us confused types a place to call home. I felt safe and understood by someone going through a similar experience. When I look around me now I see masculine fags, faggy straights, homos into sports, asshole "jocks" that don't. People defy labels all the time. It is our right to be honest about who we are and what we do without the shackles of labels restricting us. Be safe, Be horny. I will miss you more than you will know.

  12. Scott,

    I don't think that "closing out things" and "right" can be used in the same sentence here. It has been a great tie reading and I knew that this day would come, I just don't have to like it. I will check each day realizing it could be eh last one. I have only the best wishes for you and your family and your life.

  14. This is a sad day.
    Maybe Scott can figure a way where those of us
    who want to stay within the wheel of this blog can stay in touch.
    I can add this piece of candy. I saw a guy yesterday, in khaki shorts, that fit him so beautifully well. He is incredibly handsome. When he was walking away and I could see the seam of his beautiful ass, I thought of SJ. Yes. That's what this blog has done. New things to do. New ideas. Now, when I am standing in line at the supermarket, I look around and think, how many of these guys are bi? When I see someone with dark sun glasses, I think, they are cruising glasses. Yup. You live and learn from this blog.

    p.s. sfbarefeet. I meant to compliment you. From what I can see, you've got a great body!!!!

  15. I've always admired those who have gone out "on top". Following you has been like riding in an Aston Martin or Lamborghini, now I'll just have to get used to riding in my Honda...Thank you, Scott!

  16. Oh, thank you to those men and women who have followed Scott and given such great advice, many laughs and genuine concern. It has been a pleasure to get "to know" you all. My favorite columns were...well, there are too many to single out! Thank you, guys, for your companionship.

  17. Artful 1,
    I personally think that is the greatest loss: the forum for people to talk about these issues. Debate, support, disagree respectfully...Maybe the site could stay up in some form....maybe SJT2 Survivors blog....

  18. Wonderful post, Runner! Scott, well done! "Completely Naked" quit quite a while ago, but decided to keep his blog open so new people who need it could read. You'd do a service by doing so. I have really enjoyed reading this blog and its many commentors; many thanks.

  19. Scott,
    I never said much on your blog, but I read every day, sometimes more than once I would come back to check out the comments written. You are a genuinely funny guy with a lot of heart and soul, and it has been a great ride on your journey of self exploration. I hope you got what you wanted out of this experience. You certainly entertained me! Take care, and wishing you akl the best for you and your family.

  20. I respect your decision Scott. But it's a very sad day for your readers. Your work on the blog meant more than you can know to us.

    Is there a way for someone to collect contact info for the guys that want to give it? Maybe someone can keep some kind of communication going? Please?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Scott, your latest poll didn't include,"When Scott comes back he'll be...gone". Maybe you can do a final poll along the lines of something like, "Scott' blog was...(fill in the blank)". Way too many adjectives: helpful, addictive, sexy, instructive, thought-provoking, too funny...and on and on.

  22. For those of us who do not want to take total quiting for an answer:

    One idea for best of both worlds: If Scott Posted once a month, once a quarter, twice a year, then we could hear what he has been up to. We who have posted several times, and those who read regularly, could then write longer more in-depth posts on a subject or question posted in these very occasional, but regularly scheduled visits with old pals and ever-changing and growing humans.

    Even a just a new picture, and a question and space to comment, would keep us together and happy. Scott could take submissions via email and post the stories of others work, and act as an editor in cheif of the blog, as another alternative.

    Scott might also choose to have guest hosts, a rugby star, for a month or two, a hairy ass crazed guy next, a nudist hiker the next. Those folks could also post on a regular schedule with less commitment needed, to make it more sustainable.

  23. Scott, We do understand it is yout time and up to you. I hope you have been able to answer some of your personal questions. Hopefully, you will find it comforting to know that hundreds (probably thousands or more,) are facing the same issues. Thanks for the discussion outlet.

  24. Scott, it's your decision and I thank you for the fun you gave me with your blog.
    Goodbye and thanks for all the fish!

  25. I just opened an new e-mail address sjtsurvivors@hotmail.com. If anybody wants to network with others from this blog, contact me and I will try to compile a way to keep in touch. That is unless it becomes too big for me. I did NOT ask Scott's permission for this so I hope he approves.

  26. Scott: It would be selfish of us to ask you to stay though your blog provides a unique outlet for so many guys so we wish you all the best. It will be hard to walk away because you love the banter and to stir things up. Maybe after awhile, you have the itch to blog again, especially when you experience more things on your gay bucket list. And we will be waiting for your return.

  27. To close out the day.
    A reader predicts, that Scott will close his blog with a picture. A final picture! He will be in full drag, riding a horse somewhere in town!!!!!!
    He will also be wearing red satin spiked heels, that he borrowed.

  28. Scott,

    Reading your blog was one of the first things I did in the morning... I looked forward to you would post and also what your readers had to say. Even though I didn't post many comments, I felt part of a "family". Thank you for all of your efforts in making this blog such a hit. I'm sure you had no idea it would become so big when you first started. Congratulations to you!

    I'll miss you.... cg (the original carrot guy).

  29. Dear Scott,

    Thanks for an incredible journey, several actually. This site is what the internet was created for -- a gathering place for like-minded folks to come together and share, and teach. Unfortunately homes like yours are few and far between, as best as I can tell. I never wrote in, but I learned so much. And I thank all of you for that.

    I know that this is selfish on my part, but I think that it must be said because I know that I am not the only one that feels this way. The loss of the last incarnation of this site about did me in. Day-to-day checking to see if you were back on line yet left a daily void. I will hate to lose your (all of you) daily companionship.

    Thanks for having us all in your living room. We are all better for it, IMHO.

    Cheers to you and yours.
    Sincerely,
    Paul

  30. Paul,

    You said it all and you said it well.


    Your Stimulus Package (Seattle),

    EXCELLENT ideas. I will keep checking this site to see if there is anything there for months to come!

  32. As someone who just came on to this blog about a month ago, and who frankly is in very much the same situation as the author, I want to wish you godspeed and success. This blog is so much better than the usual blathering crap that's out there: wise, funny, insightful, real.
    Wish I'd been along for the whole ride. All the best!

  33. i cant say it better than anyone else has. I will miss the blog and I just found it last month.

  34. if you're gonna finish up properly, and ride out in style, do we not get to see the goods that we've all been so suspicious about or is it just gonna be 'so long, fair well, aufwiedersehen, goodbye'?

  35. Scott,don't do it,keep the blog going, I for one will miss you.

  36. Scott - thanks for the time you have dedicated to this blog. It's been a a great learning experience for me, as it has for many of your other avid followers. Best of luck dude - experiment safely, have fun, life is short so explore all that that you can within your boundaries. Yes this from a guy that's been married for over 25 years and manages a somewhat vanilla "gay" side when I get the chance. You're a star - we will all miss you :(

  37. Scott,

    Not to sound melodramatic, but the loss of you and your blog on the net will leave a hole in many of our souls. You have allowed us to speak about desires and sexual exploits and ask questions we may have never told anyone else about.... our time together has been very powerful.

    But I do understand the demands of a daily blog... but have you considered doing the blog on a weekly basis... bi-weekly? (lol)

    Take care Scott and know that you will be missed. Also, I agree with the others... isn't time that we see the complete Scott... naked and hard with multiple views so we can remember you as we jack off?

  38. Scott,
    I met you by accident on the internet. I was looking for something in Binghamton. The restaurant outlet. I have never been disappointed. I feel like I am losing a friend. No doubt about that. God speed. God Bless you and yours.
    Continue to be you. You are one very unique individual. What a prize you are. A rare jewel.
    Sincerely,
    bj.
    P.S. The next time you unzip, think of us. When you wake up with a nice one and treat yourself in the shower, think of us. I know, that we will be thinking of you!

  39. Totally unnecessary. Yes, you're busy. Everyone's busy. But then, you don't have to be blogging everyday dude. A post now and then, perhaps once a week, or once every two weeks could be manageable.

    When you do decide to leave blogging, inevitably the itch to post something (about an insight, a tryst, a nice hot eye candy, whatever) will come over you; and then where's your forum? Well, it was in the dumpster, but can't retrieve it now because the garbage truck came this morning and took the trash away.

    Leave the blog as it is. Come to it now and then. Take a long breather as long as you desire, then post once in a while.
