Dear John. I mean Blogger.

Dear Blogger,

This is a difficult letter for me to write.  Frankly, I don’t even know where to start.

Remember how, a few months ago, I professed my undying love to you?  When I said I’d stick with you, through thick and thin, despite some of your shortcomings?

I lied.

The truth is, I’ve met someone else.

Our affair actually started quite some time before I wrote that post, but I tried to keep it contained to the workplace.  But then he began wooing me with all of his fancy plugins, themes and widgets.  I admit, I was drawn in by the bling.  But it was just so sexy!

I tried to resist at first.  And I tried having the conversation with you.  Unfortunately, you can back with too many no-replies.

I’m not knocking you, by any means.  I still think you’ve got a lot to offer.  And I wanted to make it work, because, let’s face it… you were the first platform I jumped into bed with.  You were my first bloggy love, and you’ll always hold a special place in my heart.  But it was time for me to move on.

I still think you’re awesome.  And I hope we can still be friends.

PS: Because I’m not sure how you’re going to handle the news (and because I was also ready for a change), I’m changing my blog name.

PPS: I apologize to those readers I might have inadvertently spammed with a barrage of blog posts in the move.  Breaking up is hard to do.

  1. I can’t tell what this is – WordPress? Let me know how it goes and whether it was easy or not. I’m not too happy with B either.

    1. Yep… it’s WordPress. It was a little bit of a pain in the butt converting, but overall easier than I had dreaded. We’ll see how the rest goes, but I’m liking it so far.

  2. I’m breaking up too…really soon! I may have lots of questions! I’m scared but feel blogger and have just grown apart and need to go our separate ways in order for me to be happy.

  3. I hope the move went smoothly.
    I miss my blogger community as unfortunately I have no time to write my website blog and a community blog. It is fun to pop in out of other communities though – and this post definitely raised a smile!

  4. love the new blog…so what plugin are you using on top? I still don’t know how the great plug-ins for wordpress…need to do more exploring if I can find the time.

  5. You did it! You moved! And it’s not even a disaster with boxes lying all around here.

    Wow, I am really impressed….but also distressed, because you were one of the last holdouts I knew! Damn, I think I’m going to have to switch eventually….

  6. Welcome to WordPress my friend! You’re going to love it here. Lots of coolness and control. Google search engines like it more too. 🙂 Now the fun really begins.

  7. Congrats! Blogger can go cry himself a river of bytes. I don’t know much about blogger except that IT SUCKS SO HARD LEAVING A COMMENT. This? Right here? Is soooo much more enjoyable. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.

    And as someone told me when I switched? Welcome to the Grown Ups Table. 🙂

  8. I’m so scared. I know I have to do the same thing, but I”m scared. the longer I put it off, the worse it’ll get it.

    Maybe you can post on the whole process????
