It is with sadness that we need to give notification that PopClogs will close down, we have supported PopClogs for some time now and the costs continue to increase without any revenue and the user base remains quite small (but awesome). We did attempt to engage with a Skype Meeting to discuss how we could rescue/support the site, but unfortunately the turn out was very low. We intend to close down the website at Midnight on January the 30th 2019. We have written some scripts to export your text, but you will need to download any images you want prior to the close down date. We will backup the website locally, but can’t guarantee any data will be available post the close down date. If you would like an export of all your data please email email@example.com with your username and email address and we will do our best to service requests but they may take some time. If anyone wants to make a reasonable offer for the domain and code, we will consider offers seriously. There are some awesome community platforms such as discord and slack, and of course lots of forum systems that could be your new home. Regards, The PopClogs Team

"If you have done the best you can do and if you have gotten all you could extract from something, you have given all you had to give, then the time has come when you can do no more than say thank you and move on."--Maya Angelou
Create habits that heal you and avoid self destructive patterns. This applies to the physical, emotional and mental part of life.
Physical Eat lots of natural foods. Spend time in nature. Be active everyday. A few minutes of exercise is better than none.
Emotional Practice dispassion for emotional control. Don't feel sorry for yourself, no matter what you've been through. Be busy planning and living your life instead. Don't think negatively of others, no matter how evil they've been to you. It harms you and is a self destructive habit.

I'm joining @Meridia in this goal, not because I have a grand philosophy of life but because it's a possible way of collating thoughts and experiences that relate to who I am and how I live under a single banner.
Not really given much thought to how it will work yet...

In Ancient Greece, there used to be different Schools of philosophy who competed with each other for students, and each School had a different philosophy of life.
I recently read “A Guide To The Good Life” by William B. Irvine, about Stoicism, a philosophy that stemmed from Cynicism, and thrived in both Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome – Marcus Aurelius being the last well-known Stoic. It seems that philosophy took a turn around the end of the Roman Empire and headed into an era of Christian philosophy, so these Schools of philosophies of life seem not to have survived beyond then. (I am no philosopher, so this is my rudimentary understanding for now.)
The author was considering becoming a Zen Buddhist, but when he stumbled across Stoicism, he found that this held great appeal for him and took it upon himself to put their principles into practice. He is now a modern-day Stoic.
Rather than promoting a conversion to Stoicism by the reader, the author promotes having a philosophy of life, as the Schools of Ancient Greece and Rome used to promote. Having a philosophy of life provides direction and guidance for all the smaller decisions to be made in life. If you don’t have a clear philosophy, decisions can contradict each other or be difficult to reach, as there is no coherent framework on which to base them.
I am going to give this further thought, and possibly attempt to create a coherent Stoic Buddhist philosophy for myself, given there is very little contradiction between them. We’ll see what comes of it :)
