It's a safe place, beyond the reach of a once-trusted friend who manipulated, then casually discarded me.
Was it REALLY so bad that I need to close a blog that I have maintained this long? Yes. Shocking. I am still in shock.
But I need to write. I really need to write, if I'm going to emerge whole someday.
And I need the rest of you guys. I have never met Amrita, Maria, Dave, Nikki, Luz, JYankee or Katherine; but we've been friends for a long time. If I could (like in Willy Wonka) send boxes of chocolates through cyber-space to thank you for being such awesome friends, I would do it.
So let's ditch this taco stand. I already have a nice URL that I'm making cozy for us. Here's the escape plan:
Followers: There are 14 of you. I'll contact you individually with the new URL.
Blog-buddies from my blog-roll: I'll visit you on your blogs.
Personal friends, non-blogging friends (Amy, Lisa, John, Angie, etc....): I'll e-mail you or reach you on Facebook.
There are a few of you that are hard to reach, but I would love to keep you if I can (Gibbonesque, Kate, my lovely lurkers from Portland, Iowa, the UK , France). The only solution I can think of is for you to e-mail me if you'd be so kind...
I hope you'll stick with me.
