Dropping the “Cheers!”

So, for the longest time, I had this weird feeling that I had to end every post with some form of farewell, which I’m now going to drop. Today I’ll talk about why I did it in the first place, why I’ll drop it and what will happen from now on!

So, for starters, the first-ever blog I found and read that proved to be a huge inspiration to me did that thing where the blogger ended every post with “Tschödeldö” which is a weird way to say “Bye”, I guess. It’s hard to explain. Since I love Dr Pepper and drinking is cool, I figured “Cheers” would be fun to end the post on, as in “Hydrate!” or just “Bye” or something. I honestly have no clue as to why I started doing it as it really doesn’t translate well but I just stuck with it for the longest time. At some point, I even used to say “Cheerio” for whatever reason and changed it later to “Cheers” which is still weird. I cringe slightly at that.

That’s mainly why I won’t end posts with “Cheers” anymore. It’s weird. I don’t know why I did it. Hence, I don’t know why I should continue to do it. And also, even among bloggers that ending posts with a single word thing is bizarre! There’s a bunch of people that just end posts with some sort of summarizing sentence or rather abruptly with some form of separation and that’s all,… so my “thing” was weird, I guess. I doubt anyone minds at all, to be fair, but I just found it a bit cringe, personally. So from now on, posts will just end without a “Cheers” or anything like that.

  1. Tbh, saying cheers as a way of greeting or farewell is a very British thing. It’s supposed to mean thank you but we use it for everything. So I never noticed it as odd.

    1. Oh, makes sense. Honestly, I just felt weird, so I’ll drop it :D Been noticing it for a while now and it feels better to just… not. Does that make sense? :D

  2. Also people having catchphrases is absolutely not uncommon – you’re not alone. I’d wager half of the people whose videos I watch regularly have that either at the start or the end. And in the olden times people had the same email greeting at the end ;)
