I have been blogging for almost 12 years. I started on Live Journal and it was, in a way, much more similar to FaceBook than to blogging. I moved from platform to platform until I finally went out on my own. I have met many interesting people and some of them have become real friends. I have written about my life and my parents and diabetes and depression. I have written a lot on eating and food and self acceptance.
I have said it all.
It is time to let go and that is not a decision I have made lightly. The closer I got, the more I started rationalizing. Would it kill me to keep the blog running, even if everything I write feels old and tired? Probably not. But I think it is time.
I don’t know what happens next. I have archived the old blog. I am keeping Chickens and Eggs. For now, this page is a placeholder.
