So long…


The title actually works in two ways.

The first meaning is straightforward. It has been so long since I have last posted on my beloved blog. But there is a reason for this. I no longer feel that it is the best platform to serve my needs of chit-chatting about cars. To me, blogs are slowly fading. They just don’t have the excitement around them anymore. People everywhere have decided to turn them into money-making advertisement platforms and have taken the very essence of what blogging should be and commercialized it. More power to them. It’s just that was never my intention and when I saw that that’s what everyone was expecting of Brake Banzeen, it became much more tiring to explain that that’s not what this site was about. It was a place for me to share my thoughts on cars with like-minded individuals. That’s it.

The second meaning comes into play now. It’s time for me to hang up my typing gloves and move towards the mediums which most people tend to use more frequently. I have a newfound love for Twitter, the appreciation for which it only takes 140 characters to say what you have to. And obviously there is Instagram; haven’t started yet but I’m sure I’ll get there soon. For any of my followers over the last 4 years, thank you for reading and being an integral role of Brake Banzeen. I’ll always appreciate it.

If you guys would like to continue following my work, please do so on Twitter @brakebanzeen.

So long people, it’s been a joy!

    Elwehbi –

    So sad to see this post. You know I’ve been a longtime admirer of this blog and I kept regularly visiting even when I saw nothing new.

    On a brighter note, I hope you find virtual happiness in Twitter and other channels and it’ll be great to follow your automotive passion there. Would be amazing to keep in touch otherwise – I believe we still have a Porsche-themed meet-up to tend to.

    Good luck, my friend. To new beginnings and stronger, brighter futures.

    You bastard! U started a few years after me and now you are giving up! Now thats a sad day for blogging! I know I always pushed you to post more, but I think also life caught up with you and that happens to people, a lot of good people have disappeared from blogging and its sort of sad, you should really get on Instagram Already! U are seriously a few years late!

    U were great while you were on here buddy!
