But haven’t we said goodbye before? So we all should be getting good at it, right?
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 email@example.com. Tom and I will be checking that frequently. Or you can still use firstname.lastname@example.org. If you use email@example.com, 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.
So long for now. See you on the flip side.
MWAH! Big Interwebs kiss.
“…But whether you follow me to Hot Dogma! or choose another blog community…”
Are you kidding? Don’t you know that the first rule of stalking is to NOT let the subject out of your sight? And the second is to follow them to…..wherever? Sheeesh! Get with the program!
Looking forward to the new blog. It will be interesting to see how you and Tom Breen share the moderator role….
When are you going to stop moderating and/or maintaining this Dating Jesus blog? When are you going to totally abandon it, in other words? Is this your last post here? Inquiring minds want to know these things.
This is it. It’s going back to sleep. I’ll moderate comments for a while longer, but my energies will be over there, at Hot Dogma!
And sharing will be interesting, as I’m not skilled at it. But I have a feeling Tom can hold his own and any take-over I attempt will be rebuffed with grace and good humor on his part. So I won’t attempt a take-over.
“Lead on!” said Scrooge. “Lead on! The night is waning fast, and it is precious time to me, I know. Lead on, Spirit!”
Awesome quotage, Bro. Mike!
