Gone Fishing

Writing this makes me so so sad, but I'm going to have to retire penelope and bumblebee.

As a writer, one who finally found her voice again through this medium, and as a mother, one who found her stride alongside all of you, this hurts my heart more than you can imagine.

Unfortunately, the privilege to be honest and real and free here has been compromised.

I promise I'll keep reading; keep commenting, and hopefully, on the other side of '07, I'll be back, somewhere new.

thanks for reading.

    Darn. Be sure to pay me a visit when you've got a new identity, okay? You don't even have to tell me it's you - I always go visit new commenters, and I'll put two and two together eventually. If I see someone write a really quirky, funny comment somewhere, I'll know it's you.

    Ditto what B&P said. And if you need any help or support or an ear (I've been there), please don't hesitate to get in touch. You hear me? DON'T HESITATE.

    Shit. Come back soon. I have a lot of the TO blogger's emails in my address book. When you have a new identity let me know-I'll export it for you and you can let them know.

    Sad! As you are one of the blogs that I check daily, I am very sorry to read this post. Do please let me know if you get a new identity, because I'll surely stop by in '07.

    Oooh, that really sucks.

    Please visit when you come back, or email the link to your 'new site'. Because I've really enjoyed you and Bumblebee.

    In the meantime, wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

     
  • At 9:51 PM, Blogger Christina said…

    Oh no! I understand, but I'm so sorry to see you go. If you need anything, please drop me an e-mail. And if you ever start up a new site, be sure to let me in on it, OK?

    WHAT?!?!?! I know I am like 2 weeks late in finding this out ... I still can't get your feed on bloglines and I haven't been out in the blogopshere lately but ... no!!!!! I'll really miss your words. But I understand completely. I hope to find you somewhere new soon.

    Big hugs to you and wishing you the happiest of new years!

     
  • At 6:38 PM, Blogger MotherBumper said…

    Uhhhh what the heck? I go on "vacation" for a while and come back to find this :(

    I know you have good reason because you wouldn't have done it if there wasn't one but let me tell you - I'll miss you. I hope you find a new identity and come on out into the blog playground which should be a place of happy times.

    Happy New Year to you and your family and Bumper sends a huge hug (and it's from me too).
