You are breaking my heart. Okay, maybe I’m being a little extreme. Perhaps, my heart isn’t broken. You are however, bumming me out. A few days ago or a week ago or who can remember, you broke for what seems like an eternity. This week you’ve been acting funny, too.
I know what you are thinking. You are thinking, “Why do you care? You aren’t even on me (Blogger) anymore, you abandoned me for WordPress.” It’s true that I switched from you to WordPress a little less than a year ago, but I will tell you today what I told you then- it is nothing personal. You were great, I loved you. I really loved you and in many ways, I still love you. But you were my first and I just wasn’t ready to settle down. I wanted to see what all the hype about WordPress was, I wanted to experiment.
My leaving was hard on both of us. You could even say it affected my appetite because my feed got totally messed up in the move. I didn’t lose weight, but I lost followers and I would much rather lose weight. There are some things I miss about you, but at this point it would just be silly to go back. Yes I’m happy where I am, but I will always be grateful for all you taught me and all the great people you introduced me to.
Here’s the thing, you and I are still connected. When you break, I feel it. Something feels wrong, not quite right. It takes me a little time to figure it out, but I notice that things in my corner of the blogosphere get quiet. Then I go and make my usual rounds to see what my friends are up to and I’m not able to leave comments on their blogs because you won’t let me. It feels like you are trying to punish me. Like you don’t want people to read my blog from their dashboard and you don’t want them to know I’ve been visiting.
Did I really hurt you that much that you have to take it out on everyone? Bloggger, I’m sorry. Can we please be friends?
