I almost titled it just "Last Post," but that just ain't gonna happen. I'll have to vent eventually. But this will be the last post you see here, and on 11-29-08, this blog will disappear entirely.
It's like this: I need to make some major changes in my life. For some of those changes, it would be helpful if I didn't have quite so much name recognition, so to speak. So I'm going to delete my two existing blogs and start over later, with another user name, e-mail address, and blog.
I hesitated to do this for the longest time, because a lot of links are going to go dead, and a lot of work up in smoke. But even though I know I won't be able to totally erase my blogospheric footprint, I think the greater level of anonymity will prove useful. Plus, I just need some time away from the internet. I need some time to accomplish some things and MAKE SOME MONEY (If anyone has something to do that you think I could do, now is the time to say so!). I won't even be commenting.
I'll resurface sometime early next year, I think. I'll republish some of the most informative old posts, perhaps with a little re-writing. I'm open to suggestions on which old posts to do that with.
Like I said, I'll leave this up 'til the 29th. If you're interested (and you're not in a position to throw a monkey wrench into the works), e-mail me and ask to be notified when the new blog is up.
When I do resurface, I'd appreciate it if those who know my secret identity didn't mention my name.
In the meantime, this is it.
