It hardly seems possible that we’ve been together less than a year. What wonderful times we’ve had — going right back to those shy early blogs when you helped me build my confidence to today, nine months later, when I feel confident calling myself a “blogger” (just like you! I’ve even taken your name!)
You’ve always been good to me. I have no real complaints, and I’ve treasured our time together. Sure, we never became a “hot item” with dozens of comments piling up under each post, but you’ve given me the freedom to express myself, and I think my friends and family have enjoyed spending time with us.
But now … I have to go.
No, no, it’s not you — it’s me. I’ve — well, I’d better just be honest — I’ve met someone else.
It was just a fling at first … just checking out another site, seeing what it had to offer. I didn’t think it would be any harm to register. Just an innocent little flirtation.
But I have to admit, my new love can offer me things you can’t. No, it’s not your fault — it’s more that my needs have changed. I’ve learned to appreciate a lot of qualities I didn’t even know I needed. For the last couple of weeks I’ve been spending all my time with this new love of mine. You must have noticed I haven’t been around as much. Did you suspect something was wrong?
I could stay with you and pretend to be content, but we’d both know I was living a lie. It’s better if I leave so we can both start over. I’m excited about this new relationship and I can’t keep it a secret any longer. It’s time to go public, let everyone know where my heart is — and that means saying goodbye to you, dear Blogger.
Thanks for the wonderful times. I hope you’ll be very happy. You’re a special, special piece of software and I know others will appreciate you just as I have.
Meanwhile, if anyone’s got their bookmarks for my page set to www.hypergraffiti.com , you’re already seeing the new site. If your bookmark is set to http://hypergraffiti.blogspot.com , you’ll need to change it to www.hypergraffiti.com or https://trudymorgancole.wordpress.com –either one will take you to my new and beautiful WordPress site, where I’ll be blogging from now on! Can’t wait to see everyone there!!
