Eight Years; Overdue Goodbye

Posted on November 14, 2017 at 2:30 PM

Hi all.


I was a child when I created Faio. It began as a fun little project to offer something I was looking for myself: a way to listen to Adventures in Odyssey online without needing to navigate sketchy websites. The goal was to aggregate episodes and foster a fan community alongside it. Faio was a project for me during a very important time of my life. Adventures in Odyssey and Faio by extension were both there as I grew from child to adult. I have learned many things about running a website, communicating with people on the internet, and working on a passion project all thanks to Faio. I have even made a couple friends here which I still communicate with occasionally to this day.


Faio was created eight years ago today. A lot has changed since then, and I suppose the elephant in the room is the status of this website. I'll address the obvious: Faio hasn't been updated in years. There was a time when I'd spend hours every day updating the site; hosting giveaways, posting in this blog, and many other activities. Unfortunately that's not the case now. Everyone grows up eventually and as sad as it is to admit; I have long since grown out of Faio and Adventures in Odyssey.


I apologize for abandoning Faio. It was simply too difficult for me to face the facts and devise a graceful way to put Faio to rest. I thought about a total site revamp, but that's not likely to work out for a number of reasons. I suppose this blog post will stand as a statement of Faio's current status and hopefully a testament of what it once was. What started off as a childish fansite imitating legitimacy actually grew into a service that got enough attention to stand on it's own and become a passionate community. Words can't describe how important that is to me, and if you were a part of the Faio community at any time I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.


To any newcomers: Faio might not be exactly what you're looking for. The episode list is no longer updated and has many dead-end links, but you're free to browse for the odd link here or there which still functions.

If you're a fan of AIO and want to listen online: there is an official service were you can do so called the AIO Club.

If you want to listen to AIO but aren't dedicated enough to pay for a monthly membership: the AIO Wiki has a list of some free episodes you can download.


I don't know how many people will even read this blog post, or if any regular visitors are still around at all. Even so, I want to thank you for everything and apologize for this long overdue statement. I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.


Goodbye.
