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.


  1. Aaron, I can't wait to read your new posts. I believe they will be differentt because they will be enriched by your new found wisdom. Lots of love to you and Becky.

  2. So glad to hear your intending to come back with your writing. I've had a similar year with life changes affecting my ability to post anything. I suspect we're both glad to see the back of 3013. I hope 2014 is better for us both.
    Good luck buddy. See you over there. {if I can find a link as the top one wants me to sign up}

  3. Thought I'd corrected that typo......

  4. I always suspected you were a time traveler, Al. Now your secret is out!

    Thanks for the heads up - I posted my personal log in link by mistake. It should be working now.

    Wishing you all good things in the new year.
