Fare Thee Well WordPress

April 14, 2013

Mr. Potato Head

I’m moving on. No hard feelings, WordPress, but this relationship isn’t working for me anymore. You’re too possessive and controlling. You want everything to be your way, and I need some space. I need freedom to express myself fully, and you just can’t give me that. I’ll always cherish the time we spent together. Those were some of the best days of my life. But if I’m to grow and be who I’m really meant to be, I have to go it alone. I’m sorry, but that’s just the way it has to be.

So tomorrow I’m going public. At least that’s the way I see it. This new venture is very much like an initial public offering (IPO) for me. And, so I’d like to take this opportunity to offer you this amazing, once in a lifetime chance to invest in It’s gonna be great. Like Facebook only better!

Do you really think anyone believed Mark Zuckerberg when he came up with his crazy idea to put everyone’s personal information online? Who would want that? But apparently Mark knew something about human psychology (and a teeny bit about coding) that no one else did. And I think I do, too, except for the coding part.

If you ever saw the movie, The Social Network, the whole idea seems even crazier, and you’re left wondering how Facebook ever got off the ground in the first place. Well, aside from stealing someone else’s idea and coding a whole new, ground-breaking program overnight and scamming your best friend into financing the project until you make it big and then cut him out. But I’m not like that. All the money here is going to a good cause. It’s going to the send One Funny Motha to Tahiti Fund. Because I’ve always wanted to go, and because then I could write all about it for you. See? I do it all for you.

Of course, I can’t go (to my new site or to Tahiti) without first leaving you with one last Friday Photo Finish. On Sunday. For old time’s sake.

Man Down in Office

I’m telling you after this week with everything that’s been going on and trying to transfer this site, this is exactly how I feel. 

Anyway, I hope you’ll join me at my fancy, new address, And grab my button. I’m giving away FREE buttons to the first 50 people who sign up to follow me  through email or RSS feed on my new site (you have to re-sign up if you’ve been following me here because WordPress is mean and won’t transfer everybody to my new site). And then free buttons to everyone else!

And just in case there’s any mishaps (but their better not be, Tech Person, you know who you are) here’s my new email (write me). My Facebook page and Twitter and Google and Pintrest are all the same.

On Monday I’ll also be announcing the winner of the Lost in Suburbia book giveaway on my new site so stop on by to see who’s the lucky winner.

Guys, this is only the beginning. Let the good times roll!

  1. Sure. Go ahead. Be that way. Leave me. See if I care… Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

    I’ll be sure to pop in on your new site! 😀

  2. I will follow you no matter WHERE you go. (And if you could help me to find my way out of this co-dependent WordPress relationship I’m in, well, I might even love you more. BEST of luck.

  3. Congratulations and good luck on your move! I’ll be checking you out soon.
    Jae Mac, I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)

  4. Woot! Woot! Hope the new digs are spacious! Ellen

  5. I’m glad you’re leaving WP too, he was no good for you. He continuously cheats with other people and has a reputation for being controlling and unreasonable. 🙂 See you on the other side, hun. I expect to learn many new F words when you own your own space xx

  6. I cannot believe I missed this…I want a button!!! And I have a little something for you too. 😉

  7. Cannot wait to see you there. You better have cocktails, though. I’m much more fun that way! Congrats and Mwah! Just saw The Social Network myself, or at least part of it. And we all still have FB accounts? It’s that good. The only thing that is that evil and that good is probably real bacon (something I don’t eat).
