One week ago, Jason Davis did the inevitable...he signed his final post on Recruiting.com.
The comments flowed and colleagues gave their final tributes (save one frady-cat blogger who left an anonymous comment).
It's been a wild ride for Jason. His late nights spent blogging and brainstorming have helped him carve out a legacy (even though he'd never admit it) within the community of recruiting bloggers that will not be soon forgotten.
And, thankfully, we don't have to look far to see what Jason's got up his sleeve. He's had the domain RecruitingBlogs.com for a while, and it's now a full-fledged community - check it out - but when you do, invite me to be your friend.
Finally, I'd like to repeat the comments I left on Jason's final Recruiting.com post. My comments, of course, are tongue-in-cheek, but in every bit of humor, there's certainly an element of truth:
In Jason's honor, let me now wax poetic on this final day with a bit of revised prose from Shakespeare's Henry V, 1598:
Cheers to you, Jason Davis.
KING HENRY (Jason) V:
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And the remembrance of Recruiting.com shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of bloggers;
For he to-day that posts on a weblog with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen across the globe now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That blogged with us at Recruiting.com.
You are the King Henry of Blogging.
