After 7 years and thousands of posts by several contributors, the political blog Atrabilioso, managed by journalist Jaime Restrepo Vásquez, closed last August 31 . The blog's contributors were critics of President Juan Manuel Santos ‘ administration and staunch supporters of former President Álvaro Uribe .
Restrepo claims that,
redundancy becomes customary and I have reached a point where I have to decide between pointing out the national tragedy imposed on us or focusing on my beliefs so that I may eradicate from my words -spoken or written- the curse which means narrating the daily life of the country.
Atrabilioso's posts have been quoted  dozens of times on Global Voices Online.
