This is, by WordPress’ count, my 6,776th post on Dating Jesus, the blog. I’ve fielded nearly 70,000 comments, and had 900,000+ visits.
This blog has been like a really comfortable shoe that I occasionally took off to beat someone over the head with, but all good things, etc. So we move on.
As of right now, I’m moving my toys over to Hot Dogma! where Tom Breen and I will be creating all kinds of fresh and interesting mischief. C’mon over! And please feel free to continue to submit ideas for blog posts. I’m always looking. Use firstname.lastname@example.org. Tom and I will be checking that frequently. Or you can still use email@example.com. If you use firstname.lastname@example.org, expect a delayed answer, as I will be checking that email address less and less frequently. I’m trying to cut down on my email addresses, as I’m up to six now and that’s about four too many.
The last time I closed down the blog, I did so to concentrate on a blog I was writing at my old job. Then I closed down that blog until my company found a decent platform on which to write it.
Then that blog was effectively disappeared when I quit that old job, and I’ve been playing back in this sandbox since. And now I’m moving on to another blog because I have ants in my pants, I think. That, or I like shaking things up for myself.
So this is not our first rodeo, you and I, or our first transition.
But whether you follow me to Hot Dogma! or choose another blog community: Thank you. Simply: Thank you.
