Hi everyone. This is the goodbye post.
I made the decision earlier this year that Speed Trials would not continue past 2015. For many various reasons, it is clearly time to put it to bed, and allow the kids, Angelo, and myself to be freed from this super public recounting of our lives.
But I just couldn’t, COULDN’T let the blog slip away without sending out a final note to those who have been reading. I went through all of the comments on this blog recently, and reading them all at once made me realize that I have some really terrific friends, who were gracious enough to not only read my ramblings, but also to leave a piece of themselves just for me. Every comment (though I hardly ever responded) is so majorly appreciated and valued.
Thank you dear friends!
So here are few last bits of info about what will happen next:
FIrstly, I have painstakingly copy/pasted every post into Word documents, and my goal is to create some hard-bound books. I definitely plan on creating a baby book for each kid (using their weekly/monthly updates). I would also love to create a hardcopy version of Speed Trials, with all my other posts in chronological order. It might be nice to flip through in years to come. But we’ll see.
Secondly, while Speed Trials will definitely go offline, I have decided to start a brand new blog for my knitting / sewing. This will have no “life” posts whatsoever, but if you ever get a hankering to see what I’m making, then you can go to themonogamistknitter.wordpress.com. It currently has all of my old “crafty” posts, and starting today, that’s where I’ll be active.
So thank you again everyone. Thank you for being there. Thank you for listening. The internet can be an unforgiving place, but you made it so bright and lovely for me for almost 10 years! I won’t ever forget that…
With big hugs and much love,
