Is It Time to Say Goodbye to SYBD
Just a short post to ask – is it time to say goodbye to SYBD? So You’ve Been Dumped has been around for eighteen years – helping people in various ways – to get over an ex. The forum closed in 2000 (where I received much hate and backlash for that) and I kept it running in BLOG form.
Just a year ago SYBD was experiencing nearly 50,000 visits a month and now due to technical changes (SSL integration) and what not, the site is getting closer to 12k.
What would be ideal would be to begin again – from scratch – but nearly 400 pages and posts the task just seems too daunting.
Helping People Get Over an Ex
The trouble is that it’s hard to stop helping people get over an ex. Each day people come and comment on the site, to get things off their chest, or the come to read other people’s comments or our articles. Each week I get messages from people saying how much the site has helped them, so it makes it hard to simply flick the SYBD switch off.
I admit, I like that I have created something good from my own breakup. Something that helps men and women all over the globe. I get a lot of satisfaction and comfort in knowing that.
So What is There To Do Now?
Is it time for me to say goodbye to SYBD? Do I sell it? Or hand it over to someone else? Do I let it keep running with this as my last post? I don’t know.
I do know that I’ve not been dumped in 18 years and I am no longer the woman who started this site. Sure I can empathise with people going through a breakup but the question is do I want to continue to do so?
Can you imagine being reminded of your breakup every single day for eighteen years? Probably not.
So that’s it. Share your input with me. Do you think it’s time to say goodbye to SYBD? I want to know…
