That’s right. I’m ditching The Bumble Files. It’s been sweet, it’s been a fun ride, but alas, it’s time. Don’t worry, I’ll still be here. I may be a little sad when I put The Bumble Files to rest, sniffle, sniffle…shedding a tear…okay, I’m done. Sigh.
Seriously, I will be unveiling a new blog with a new name. I’ve evolved, blogging friends, and I’m simply ready for a change. I hope that I don’t lose you in the transition, and that you will stick with me. After all, this blog is nothing without you guys.
I probably will be a bit afraid to click the button to make the big switch over. It seems too easy to click a button and for everything to simply turn out all right. That could be one reason for my delay, that, and the fact that WordPress continues to introduce new themes. Every time I settle on one, oh look, here’s another one to look at. Did you know that WordPress has more than 300 themes? Friends, I think I’ve looked at every single one, much the same way that I go clothes shopping, feeling the urge to touch each item. No, I’m kidding. Sort of. Each one has its good qualities, but the truth is you can do anything if it’s customizable, which, of course, they all are. Oh, just more decisions! That’s all that is.
I want to personally thank a few friends for their help, for listening and answering my silly questions, and for putting up with my wishy-washiness: Mari, Carrie, Adam, Vanessa, and Jackie. Really, a big thank you! I’m truly grateful for your time.
And so, I’m electing the turtle to help me with my send off. Did you know that the turtle is not too far behind the puppies and the kitties when it comes to Internet fame and celebrity. According to WordPress News, in the month of January alone, there were 9,195 posts with dogs, 6,111 posts with cats, and listen to this…wait for it, wait for it…192 posts with turtles! They could very well be the new “Internet darling.” He has four stubby legs and a shell on his back. How can you not root for the turtle? Let’s hear it for the turtle.
How does the saying go? Steady wins the race. Plus, many turtles are excellent swimmers.
So, me and the turtle will see you on the other side with a new blog. This is your last chance to call me Bumble. Get it out your system now! Really, I won’t care if you still want to call me Bumble.
Thank you for all the support and the great times. You are the best!
If for some reason I do lose you, I will find you! This week, hopefully, I will have my new blog together! Until then, signing off for the last time as The Bumble Files. Mwah!
