This is the end.
My only friend, the end.
After giving it some thought over the past few weeks (you probably noticed it), it saddens me to tell you that Good Old Valves is coming to an end.
I’ve had very little time for the blog and my petrolheaded life, which is now maybe less than 1% of my life. I want to write each post feeling like I actually want to write it, take some pleasure out of it, and this hasn’t happened for quite a while - it has become sort of an obligation.
So, about three and something years later, this is it. I won’t shut down the blog, I still think there’s some awesome content in the archives (yes, modesty is one of my qualities, clearly) to be explored. Also, I’ll still be around Tumblr; creeping on your posts and nagging you when you least expect it :) so it’s not like I’m going away.
Hopefully I’ll return to being active around here, maybe with something related with wheels, maybe not. Meanwhile, you can follow me on my other *almost personal* Tumblr, Sessions of Light.
To everyone I’ve met around here, thank you for everything. I’ve learned so much, met many wonderful people.
Next week I’ll be around Copenhagen (Denmark) and Malmo (Sweden), so drop me a message if you’re nearby (or just to tell me where I should go!)
See you soon.
Home’s where the…
You may have noticed there hasn’t been much going on here lately.
You noticed correctly. I’ve been overly busy with work (even when it isn’t called for) and have been neglecting Tumblr massively.
Now that I finally managed to get some vacation time, will properly answer your messages, build myself a nice queue of posts, and catch up with what’s going on with you.
See you :)
Because not all acquisitions require wheels… this is my new one :)
Things have been slow around here…
… but rest assured, I will be back. There’s been a lot of work, a lot of reading, and a complete lack of time to do anything that’s not, well, work related. For that I apologize.
Now go and wish me a happy birthday, it’s been a heavy day.
I still feel like a little girl everytime a post of mine gets featured on the radar.
And I’m a man. That’s how I excited I get about this!
Thank you for the love, everyone, and hello new followers!
—Random notes #7
After years of being awesome, I shaved my beautiful, mind blowing & heart warming beard.
I hope you can still take the words I write seriously — I know that a man who writes about vintage cars without a proper moustache is already failing at basic levels.
On the other hand, it’s the perfect excuse to grow one of these.
I know that some fellow designers and type freaks are following me, so I’ll use Tumblr for selfish social purposes
— Anyone thinking about going to the Ampersand Conference this June in Brighton (UK)? I desperately need some company to go this year! Oh say you will, say you will!
After weeks of not having the time (and the will, to be honest) to create new content (I have a big ass queue), I’m now refueling GOV’s storage with new content!
So drop me a line suggesting ideas, a theme, anything you want, you may even insult me if you feel like I have it coming. Take advantage of the fact that I’ve already had 5 Ports.
