Hi friends that are still left here:
Typepad has served me well. I've enjoyed my time here, and as I read back over the 850+ blog entries and several thousand comments recorded over 8 years, I do get a bit nostalgic. However, all good things must end (and be reborn)!
I've saved all of the posts and all of your comments, which will always mean a lot to me. I never meant to document my life. I only meant to keep myself writing. Turns out, you helped me do both.
Come on over to the new blog. This old Typepad spot will eventually be shuffled off, like old skin or a tee-shirt worn one too many times, or a dead body you have to hide because it's starting to stink.
