Right, my loves, my hearts, my remaining, dwindling, sugarplum lovelies. There has to be a change. I’m so precious about this big old beast of a blog that I’ve been paralysed, for a very long time, into not being able to write anything.

So I need to change things. I need to clean things. I need to scrub everything down, and start fresh. And that means a pretty big change. Which there isn’t a *lot* of time for, but it needs to be done. I need somewhere to write for myself, and this isn’t working. I have about a million things to say, and I need to feel less pressured about letting them out.


This is not a big “That’s it! I’m off!” tantrum. Just me saying that I might be moving things around a bit, and this site may disappear for a little, or change the way it looks, or acts, but it is necessary, and I feel excited about it. YAY. Good. If there’s anyone still out there. If not, then also good.

Everything is good.

  1. Do whatever you need to do, but if you disappear for “a while”, please drop me an email. I’ve spent too many hours of my life as a voyeur of your life to give it up lightly. Press on. ;-)

  2. Of course you need to do what you need to do, but know that LRB is one of my favorite reads. If you need to move things, may I suggest that you set up your experimental site somewhere, but keep this up just so my bookmarks continue to work. Later, when it’s time, if you write somewhere else, maybe just post a link to simplify the lives of your loyal readers. :)

    Either way, I’ve enjoyed your past writings and look forward to whatever you choose to share with us.

  3. (Still here. Hi. Hope unparalysing yourself makes you jollier).

  4. Not that you sound NOT jolly now. I just mean I hope it is all excellent and exciting and great.

  7. I was just thinking of your blog and now look! I look forward to what you do next (and hope you will share some tips for creating a place to write for yourself, because I absolutely need them.)

    Anyway – still here! Hello!

I still post. Occasionally. Honest, I do.
