Nope, Not Yet, Dammit

I will not yet say goodbye.

Sentimental old fool, yes. Also — technophobic. Have to sit down and figure out how to migrate Broadside somewhere else; one T/Ser says “easy” another said, not. Don’t have time today, maybe late tonight. Definitely tomorrow because the T/S curtain goes down and who knows what happens after that?

Sort of like moving baby sea turtles.

All these damn goodbyes are killing me.

Off to the city for distraction.

    Fear not, Caitlin. I’ll help you with the export…

    What an insight reading your blog, Caitlin, into your very independent take on the subjects you tackle. I’ve enjoyed following such a strong, no bullshit writer.

    Good luck on the next one…

    Stephan, thanks. Only can a blog somehow elevate and redeem the ranter. :-) Hope you’ll visit the next iteration.

    It’s just an au revoir or an auf wiedersehen or some such. But don’t leave without telling us how to find you. Heaven knows how many Caitlin Kellys there might be to sift through in Google.

    Bwaaaaa! I miss reading your posts. And you haven’t even stopped! On the other hand, I’m looking forward to reading your work elsewhere on the Internets. It’s been a pleasure sharing a virtual office with you, Caitlin.

    You’re a hoot. Thanks.

    I look to you in awe — oh, author of five (!!! books — as I now try to wrestle my second into submission. But thanks….I’ll try to start something worth reading at the new spot, broadsideblog.wordpress.com
