The End, or something very similar to The End, is nigh.
While this site will remain live, posting here will be infrequent and essentially non-existent from here on out.
Yeah, yeah, you’ve heard this song before. This will be different how exactly?
Well, I’m committed enough to have just shut this place down except for one rather significant factor. Because the way my WordPress Dashboard is set up, this—the on-their-site blog—is the controlling one. I’m afraid that if I do shut down, the other, on-my-site blog will be seriously, perhaps fatally, impacted. Unfortunately, I have never had much luck in finding a WordPress guru to help me out with that and other annoying issues, so I err constantly on the side of not-screwing-things-up.
Why this? Why now?
Mermaids draws visitors in the hundreds on its best days andLiquid Diet draws significantly more, at least 15 times that on even the slowest days. I like the look and feel of these digs, but it do get lonely around here when the cold winds blow through the empty halls.
If I’m going to write for free, I might as well do it all where the audience is.
This means I will be posting a lot more diverse things over at the other site than I did before—this morning’s post over there, for example, is something I would have put up here previously— so you might want to bookmark Liquid Diet to keep track of where my strange mind takes me next. Also, there’s a much more active “Comments” community over there, so more than voices than just mine are heard on stories which strike a chord with readers. Diversity is good.
A way to keep track of me without having to plow through another site to find just the nuggets you like, is to subscribe to my Facebook page if you haven’t already. My every post at Liquid Diet, or on Twitter for that matter, is linked and will appear there. By the way, if I do “come back” because I still feel the need to find another outlet for my off-beer babbling, it will almost surely be at a new location and with a new attitude and focus, so keeping connected is a way to know if and when that happens.
One way or the other, I hope you’ll hang on for the next chapter. I’ll miss you if you go away.
