A Possibility...

I've had a few folks express interest in joining the Ugly Overload team to keep the blog rolling with fresh new content. I'm strongly considering the idea. I'm thinking of a group of bloggers who write whenever the fit takes them, nothing formal, no official commitment, just a few basic guidelines.

If you're interested, please email me at ragingwombat at gmail dot com, and let's see if we can put something together. Worst comes to worst, I'll just leave the blog in place as is.

Thanks for all of your kind and thoughtful comments. I've actually gotten verklempt (please don't tell the neighborhood bully).

I'm so glad to hear you're considering this! It would truly be tragic to put an end to this wonderful blog.

Another thing that writers, either you yourself or possible future writes, might do is pre0-schedule posts.

Write a whole bunch in one day, like a weeks worth, that way you aren't actually blogging every single day.

Oh YAY! I hope many people will come forward to do this. I would myself, but boy am I not witty enough and I'm extremely forgetful lol.
It would be a sad sad day if Ugly was no more.

Ugly Overload is one of my favorite bloggs. I love the pictures and I love that there are usually awsome and exciting nuggets of fascinating information to learn about the wonderful critters of the world.
I have learned so much, thank you for your time. I hope you can find a couple people who can carry the torch forward.

Hey dude. This stuff certainly is time consuming. Anyway, best of luck and kudos for all the good work.

PLEASE wombat - please consider this.

I have not been as active in here because of some issues with g-mail but you know my love of the arachnids and all the misunderstood creatures of the world. I'd LOVE to be part of your team, even if it was in a very small way.

I'd be willing to get another gmail account for that. ;)

I'm not saying I'd even be a candidate but I STRONGLY get behind this decision.

I can't log in with this email anymore but please feel free to talk to me at

I've also become a loyal Nerdfighter of late and I just know that we could gather some fans from there:

We lubs ya WOMBAT and we love this site! Let us help you keep it alive. :D

I'd be sad to see this site go, but I support your decision entirely. I'd definitely love to see this blog taken over by others. I will miss your wit!

I too would be sad to see this site go. If there's anything I can do to help, I'm willing to give it a go.

one thing that keeps a blogsite going is the contents and updates and comments are movements..and it can be pretty much achieved though collaboration..i always believed in the power of collaboration and not competition..notice those companies that don't go easy bankruptcy, those were stronger and have more collaborators..
