Where I spray-paint my thoughts…

Dear Blogger,


Dear Blogger,

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!!

  1. Yes, but where’s your feed?

  2. Yes … there’s still a little more of the learning curve to climb, Virginia! As soon as I figure out how to do a feed … there’ll be one.

  3. Congratulations on the jump! It is always so wonderful to read new additions to your blog. Thank you for sharing your life with us!

    🙂 Sara

  4. Way to go, Trudy. I’ll change my link to you on my page. And you should let nlblogroll know the change of address as well.

  5. Looks good Trudy! Congrats.

  6. what a surprise! a new look for the new(ish) year.
    have a good thaw,

  7. ooooh, I like! How very pretty, Trudy. I hope you’ll post about the pros and cons because I’m considering a move as well…. if isn’t too incredibly painful.

  8. Love the new look!

  9. Thanks for the all the nice comments, everyone! I’m really happy with the site and with how WordPress is working for me so far — there are glitches, but none of them is insurmountable, and I really like the ability to put pages up as well as the blog itself — that was the main reason for the switch.

    Virginia (and anyone else who’s into RSS, which I don’t really understand but I know some people use), is the information under the “Meta” tag in the sidebar what you need for the feed?
