So long, farewell…

6 Mar

Sob, sob, sob. The time has finally come to bid you lovely readers adieu. It’s been a fun two years, but just like Jordan Dias, we all have to let go at some point (jokes Jords, we love you reals).

.

So you have all been lovely, and thanks so much for checking back – we’ve always been super excited to see how many people check (2,237 views and 734 uniques on our best day alone, and 67,559 all-time hits!) and how many people comment (66 on our most controversial posts!), so thank you for supporting our little venture. It’s also been super fun (and ridiculous) to be featured in the Guardian Edinburgh and interviewed for STV, among others, so yay for that!

A few notable favorites from 2011:

Tipster of the year: Anon E Mouse. eusalicious loves you!

Cam’s fave commenter: Christian (and yes, that is a tacit endorsement for Informatics School Rep!)

Gabs’ fave commenter: Bildungsroman

Thanks generally to everyone who’s taken the blog in good humour, it’s been good fun and we hope it’s always come across in a friendly way.

So what next..? As our hits have crept up and up, one thing’s become clear: like it or not, there is a place for student union blogs. It’s fun, it makes people feel involved, and it’s a good insight for people who are a little bit interested but haven’t for whatever reason got a place on SRC. With 500 regular visitors, the vast majority of our readers are now non-hacks, which is lovely: we’re glad you’ve enjoyed it :)

So now there’s an opening for a new blog! Hopefully someone will decide to follow eusalicious and be generally kind to people: it’s not cool to be intimidating and rip people apart online. But there is also some demand for a blog to do more of the debate and accountability stuff that we haven’t had the freedom to do this year due to having so many friends involved, so maybe some more of that will happen in the future too. Exciting times…

That’s all folks! Lots of love,

Camilla and Gabi

    Can somebody please make a photo montage of the best Eusalicious posts with “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)” by Green Day playing in the background? Ever since I started going to summer camp when I was 10 (where schmaltzy montages were a way of life), it doesn’t quite feel like something’s properly ended without a rousing rendition of “Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)”.

    Um, as a fellow camper I COMPLETELY agree with Jacob. It has to happen. Also, you are both beautiful in that picture. Finally, eusalicious is utterly my favourite thing ever and will leave a massive hole in my life! Huge, huge love to both of you xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    So there will be no attempt to find a eusalicious successor?

    I propose x factor style auditions.

    Your guys student to hack conversion rate is pretty impressive. Like Jesus almost…
    :) well done, this blog will most certainly be missed and your successors have a lot to live up to
    Hopefully there will be someone who can dig up all the gossip on the candidates next year

    Thanks but you’re both fish anyway.

    If we’ve learned one thing from this election it’s that we’re all fish.

    I liked the bit where they put ‘licious after everything…
