A conversation between a man and blog:
MeMyselfandKids: So, how you doing?
Blog: Where you been?
Blog: Huh? What do you mean huh? Last time you spoke to me was July.
MMK: Well, actually, every time I post I am talking to you.
Blog: Don’t give me that.
MMK: You don’t have to be so cranky
Blog: Oh, so now I’m cranky?
MMK: Can we move on?
Blog: Fine, what is it?
MMK: I wanted to let you know we’re moving.
Blog: Moving? Is it somewhere warm? I like warm.
MMK: Huh? Anyway, I don’t think you’ll notice much of a difference.
Blog: So, what you are saying?
MMK: Remember, I told you about a website?
Blog: Wait! Are you dumping me? I can change. I’m sorry I was cranky before. I was just feeling lonely. You didn’t show up on Thursday.
MMK: I’ve been really busy.
Blog: Don’t try and let me down easy. I can take it. I know it’s me.
MMK: No, really it’s true. It’s the end of the term, and I have a ton of marking to do.
MMK: Yes, really.
Blog: Oh, what a relief! Tell me more about the website. By the way, didn’t you talk about this months ago?
MMK: Yeah, well things don’t always go the way you plan.
Blog: Sheesh! You screwed up didnja?
MMK: No. Wow, you are cranky. My friend was…
Blog: Now, you are going to throw your friend under the bus?
MMK: Shut up and listen. My friend worked on it for me. Issues came up. Anyway, now it is ready to be unveiled.
Blog: So, is it all finished? When are we moving?
MMK: Well, I want to edit some sections. Plus any website needs to be attended to on a regular basis. Despite that, this is my last post from this address.
Blog: Wow. So how does that affect the followers?
MMK: For those who do get it delivered directly to their e-mail, there will be no change. Those who don’t get it delivered directly to their e-mail will have to re-subscribe.
Blog: You expect everyone to follow you there?
MMK: I certainly hope so. I very much appreciate my readers and try to put out quality posts. Besides, I am going to be joined by some special guests.
Blog: Who, who? Tell me who.
MMK: Well, I want people to be surprised.
Blog: Spit it out.
MMK: Well, I am going to have some of my blogging friends, members of my writing group (I think), the Website designer, and Ms. MMK.
Blog: Cool. When are the guests coming?
MMK: Over the next few weeks.
Blog: Anything else I should know.
MMK: Yes, our new address is https://larrydbernstein.com/me-myself-and-kids
Blog: Well, that sounds great. Any worries about the site?
MMK: Well, I don’t photograph well.
Blog: Nah – you’re just ugly.
MMK: Shuuuuut up. Seriously I can’t smile on demand. Anyway, my picture is on the website, and I am a bit sensitive about it.
Blog: It’ll be fine.
MMK: I guess you’re right. Want to hear a quick story?
MMK: Today, Sunday the 20th, is my 11 year wedding anniversary.
Blog: Happy anniversary.
MMK: Thanks. Anyway, people kept asking me before my wedding, “Are you nervous?” I said no, and I really meant it. Now, of course, I was on some level. But there was one thing I was really nervous about.
Blog: What’s that?
MMK: The pictures. I was worrying about smiling for the pictures. I was afraid my lip would start quivering during picture time.
Blog: Did it?
MMK: Not so much. That’s what happens when you’re happy.
Blog: Ain’t that sweet.
MMK: I think so. Anyway, take it easy and see you on the on the website.
Blog: Sounds good.
Thanks to all of my followers. I hope to see you on my website. I appreciate the community that we have created, and I am so grateful for your loyalty, for your comments, and for your acquaintance. I hope you (and all your friends) will join me on my website. Take care and thanks again.
Moving On Up
A conversation between a man and blog:
Hey Congrats!Looking forward to reading a lot more of your writing here!
Thanks so much. I appreicate the support.
Congratulations! I love this new look and the fact that you have taken a giant step forward by having your own website. Great job. I love the colors, the design, and look forward to reading articles from your guest writer.
The way you announced your move is unique, but that makes this website all the more special to me. I am really pleased. Keep up the good work.
Thanks so much Pat. Your consistent support is so very much appreicated.
I did not handle the switch over well. If you are okay with it, would you help me get out the word that blog moved? I understand either way.
No problem. I will send it out on my twitter, Facebook and Google+ and also over my Linked in.
It’s me again. I have sent it out at all of the above that I mentioned and also directly on the Writer’s Gateway and PenAndPaperWorld groups.
Hope that helps you out.
Thank you so much. One of the best parts of the blog is meeting nice people like you. I greatly appreciate your help.
Congrats! It looks good! and way to expand your wings – so very proud of you!
Thanks. I’m trying to fly.
Woo-hoo! I can’t wait to hear from Ms. MMK. And I was really glad to see your picture; it looks fine. The new website looks great!
This is great Larry! Good for you! Can’t wait to see more!
Wow! You set up your own website. Congratulations! It looks great… so professional. By the way, your conversation between you and your blog sounds very familiar…:)
Thanks. I am still working on it and hope it will look even better soon.
So, you are also a bit crazy? When it comes to your blog I mean, of course.
All the best to you Larry on your new site. Looks great!! 🙂
Thanks for checking it out and the thumbs up.
I was seduced by your words of happy continuity in writing… they reminded me of the need to go on ’cause there is much more to share than have been shared… you’ve started already, make sure you try to reach the very end… the best…
Thanks so much. I really appreciate the comment and advice.
Oh! I like this post! 🙂 Congratulations on your new website, I didn’t rec anything from your new website yet, so I will make sure to subscribe! Can’t wait to read your next posts. Happy Anniversary too! 🙂
