This will be the last post on My.Opera spotlights...
I'm sorry it had to end, and especially to end this way, but I trully believe that there is no reason for me to continue.
When I spent hours everyday collecting posts I was under impressions that some (a very small number of people) reads and follows this, but lately I'm starting to believe that this is pretty pointless...
When I posted daily, it took a lot of my time, but some people liked it.. now.. when it was decided to try with user contributions, I see mostly one thing... and I find it very sad... people are under impression that they should submit anything as long as it is their and it would get them some promotion... I got maybe 20 emails this week total and 90% of them were selfpromotion, usually without any reason. Very few mails were stuff I expect to see, the good blog posts or albums, backbone of this community...
I've been looking at counter of this blog and to be honest ~ 15 000 visits in 2 months isn't something I can say I'm satisfied with since my blog
has that number on daily bases and it isn't even updated regularily lately...
This blog was meant to be some sort of "Thank you for the good stuff" for those who provide it.. and it was.. but I simply don't have time or energy to work on it anymore... lack of "global" interest for this and lack of my spare time have resulted with this decision.. My.Opera spotlights are part of history... maybe someday ... in some better conditions... it will resurrect...Waiting for better times,
thank you for JoniMueller
for great contributions and big help with this blog, and small
thanks to some people whose blogs deserve mentioning because they are provide us with daily dosage of wisdom, laugh or just a good story or gallery to share.. so... most spotlighted members... Zenya

Interviews might be continued, depends on others.. I sent couple of private messages, got some response so if there is a will for it, I'll keep posting them
