One Sweet Move

Howdy, partners.  If you're looking for the Sweet life, I've made the move to Wordpress.

This wasn't exactly a banner year for my online presence.  What can I say?  I didn't picture myself as someone who would have a mid-life crises, but something happened inside when 40 loomed and I wasn't where I thought I'd be.  I definitely recommend contemplating the endless abyss with a partner; it makes the whole thing much more bearable (I'm half-kidding; this has been a rough time for Becky, but I can't imagine how I would have gotten through it without her).

With Becky's steady support, and some well-timed visits with family, I felt more and more like myself each day.  Eventually I pictured starting a new Sweet.

When Goodreads sold out to Amazon, I decided it would be mostly a book-related blog.  The thing is, I was so angry about the purchase that I deleted my Goodreads account immediately.  Losing all those years of reviews made the prospect of starting an all-book blog feel overwhelming, so I never got around to it.

The break has made me realize that the idea of a blog about one thing bores the shit out of me.  So the new Sweet will be much like the old sweet, with better analytics.  Hope to see you there.
