The beginning of the end

Blogger - It has been great. It really has. But I think it's time for me to move on. You were my first blog, this is true, but sometimes things change. People change. Situations change.

I thought changing your header was the fix I needed...the right direction. Not true. I actually like the old you better. But that's not why it has come to this.

I had been neglecting you lately anyway. I have been trying to figure out how to get you to work for me the way things are now. And I realized something:
It's not you. It's me. Really. REALLY. Although you have served your purpose, you really and truly are the boring blog I created from the beginning. And that's what you should be. You should remain true to yourself. I needed you and you helped me - but I can't change you to what I need now. And I need to start anew.

I will still always love you dearly. I have no doubt I will be back. There are needs to have greetings from places, for sure. I still love your ability to keep track of lists; to let me know where I have been for the year. To remind me of websites I find amusing. Who else keeps track of this? I barely do - without you it would all be a "oh, yeah at one point I was in China" but now I know exactly WHEN that happened. Thank you.

So, this isn't the end - it is the beginning of a new relationship. One where I am not trying to make you into something you're not. Where I can appreciate you just as you are. And where you can remain true to yourself.
