It's not me it's you


Dear Blogger software,

Hi, how's it going. Can we talk? Maybe we should go somewhere public, just because.
We've been together now almost two years. Heaven knows that's a long time to invest in someone else, but you were my first and I had nothing to compare you to. I still remember when we met. I'd seen you everywhere and you were easy to be around. I didn't need try too hard, you just did your thing and I did mine and it all seemed to be... good. My blog, and thus, our relationship flourished. I would see you several times a week, sometimes daily, sometimes less, and while you occasionally acted up, I chalked it up to the normal highs and lows of a relationship.

But lately, you've been temperamental. I can post to other people's blogs with you, but I can't post to my own. My initial thought was that it was me, that I had done something wrong, but Blogger, nothing had changed. Nothing! The day before I had posted with you and you were fine and then the next day and for days after, you snubbed me, stating only "Broken Pipe Error".

I blamed my ISP, I harassed them. I said "Blogger says it's you." And I believed it, Blogger, I did. But you know, they showed me something. They showed me logs that said that you weren't where you said you were, that you were trying to post to directories; the wrong directories.

I wrote your help department and I asked for help and I was denied. So Blogger, we are over, I'm moving on.

I've met someone new. His name is Movable Type and we're going to give it a shot. I haven't had much time. With my work schedule we've only done breakfast and dinner and an occasional lunch, but already, I see things getting better.

I'll keep our memories. Your archives, are still here, but Blogger, it's time for us to say our goodbyes. I know you aren't one to get emotional, heck, you're completely unresponsive these days, so maybe you were just pushing me away, hoping I'd do this.

I wish you nothing but the happiness.
My best regards,


Breaking up is always so tough, but you're doing the right thing. I'd recommend another trip to a yarn store with Julia just to be sure you're distracted from your loss.

I second what Roxie says re: another trip for yarn. That being said, your blog is more and more popular, so of course it's time to start running with the big dogs (pardon me, Panda!).

I hope your migration goes well (or have we already migrated?). If worse comes to worse, you can always ask - Jon - for some help. He does a great job w/

I can just hear the violin music in the background. LOL!

If you're still in the dating phase, you might also check out I'm playing around with it on my not-yet-released blog. It's easy to use and I'm diggin' it. Great templates/styles. I like the fact that I'll never have to worry about them charging me anything later to access or keep archives, since it's all on my own server.
