Moving On To I Are Writer!

For those of you where kind of enough to stop by, either from Facebook or from a business card I gave out some time ago or even from a comment that I had made on another blog, this blog is now, albeit reluctantly, on permanent hiatus.

This decision was not an easy one to make, as I've had a good solid ten years (May 24, 2008 thru May 24, 2017) invested into the Blogger platform of weblogs. But, as they say, all good things must come to an end, and my time on the Blogger has come to end, and believe it or not, the reason why we are closing this particular chapter in my social media life is so incredibly basic as it will boggle the mind: the passion has done left the building.

Whereas I feel seriously engaged in writing my Tumblr blog, not in regards to reader comments/engagement  but for rediscovering my mojo again, the engagement for writing my Blogger blog is gone. Kaput. Finito. Silencio. Joined the choir invisible. Pushing up the daisies.

I really have truly enjoyed some of the lasting friendships, both real world and cyberspace, that I have made via Blogger blogging and I will fondly remember each and everyone of you.

While change is hard (believe you me, it is wickedly hard on this end), change is something I must reluctantly accept. I think it's better to end something on your own terms as opposed to simply grinding it out to just grind something out.

 My published writings can be found on Amazon, at Smashwords and at Books by G.B. Miller.

So, what's next for me? Well, if you scan both sides of the business card, the following addys will still be in play. My book blog located at both Tumblr and at Blogger (which will remain active); my Tumblr blog, which covers the 2.017 version of my writing journeys; and my public Facebook page, of which my goal for the year with that page is to become more active, thus changing the algorithms that ultimately will say yea or nay with my page. I'm still leery on posting certain things/links on FB, since the fiasco of 2012 stuck me at level one of FB jail in perpetuity. So the 100% voluntary self-censorship that I employed here will be given up for the 100% involuntary censorship that I will have to employ at the world's biggest inconsistent social justice warrior website known to mankind.

Which, as you undoubtedly know, sucks major party politician's you-know-what. That is, if you can find their you-know-what.

As always, I'll still be lurking/reading and occasionally commenting on all of your wonderful blogs, because to be perfectly honest, I need something good and intelligent to read while I'm eating my morning breakfast and the like.

And as always, you can peruse the entire archive here, as well as my other dormant blogs (via the page tabs up yonder on the front page).

So my friends, colleagues and fellow bloggers, it has been a truly fascinating and rewarding ten year Blogger blogging journey. And what more fitting way to conclude my Blogger journey than to write and post my final Blogger post on the exact day of my ten year anniversary.

I will forever be your blogger bud from Connecticut.

    1. Sadly yes. It was a good Blogger run though, but as they say, all good things must come to an end.

      As you can see, cliches are my specialty.

  2. Good luck! We all need a change once in a while.

    Greetings from London.

    1. Thanks. Change often is a mixture of good and bad. Hopefully it will be more good than bad.

  3. I missed this? Say it ain't so! Blogging is a form of writing too. Best wishes!

    1. Thanks.

      Sadly, yes. It was time for a change, and Blogger really didn't give me any choice when I asked about dual posting of content and they couldn't give me an answer.

  4. It has been tough this year to blog for most of us. Still, I prersist... See you around

    1. I persist as well, just not on the Blogger platform. Now it's Tumblr and Facebook.

      Most definitely you will still see me around. I'm like an old relative that pops up from time to time to spread cheer and joy before going off on another adventure. :D

  5. I'm really slowing down on posting myself! Summer always does that here I guess! I do love the pen n paper more, but lately my writing can be tough to read! I keep dropping letters n my hand is getting way out of practice. I really hate the voice software for google on the tablet too...especially with missing teeth! Hope Summer goes well for you!

    1. I'm basically now posting once a week on Tumblr and I'm trying to get back into the swing of writing pithy posts on Facebook. I found doing pen and paper for my story allows me to better flesh out what I write. I only use voice for work, since that is where I do the bulk of my typing and that's where I suffer the bulk of my hand fatigue.


These days, the written word is to die for, so please leave a comment that shows me and everyone else the real you. All kinds of verbiage will be cheerfully accepted in the spirit it was written.
