Dear Active Rain,
This is one of the hardest letters I have ever written, but I want to be honest with you. AR you have meant so much to me and I owe you the truth. You have no doubt noticed that I have been a little absent the past few months and not paying very much attention to you.
The fact is that I have been having an affair.
I have met someone who has changed my life. Her name is Word Press. Starting this past fall I guess I was feeling a little restless and my eye began to wander. I do truly love you, but there was something missing in my life. WP and I have a number of friends in common, who suggested we get together. Well, one thing led to the other and we have created something that I think is quite beautiful.
I hope we can still be fiends. I want us to keep in touch, but things can never be the same as they were before. This past 9 months with you have been extraordinary. I learned more then I could have ever hoped. You showed me how to connect with others, how to reveal my inner real estate agent. You have introduced me to some amazing new people who have truly changed my world. I will stay in touch with you and all the wonderful people you have introduced me to, but I need more. I need to be free to explore this crazy thing we call the "internet".
I need to keep in touch with my sphere through FaceBook.
I need to be able to twitter when I can't decide between going to Jack in the Box
or Taco Del Mar for lunch.
I want to answer questions on Trulia when Midge in South Carolina can't
decide what to do with her cats when she lists her Duplex.
Understand that it's not you it's me. I need to be free right now. I need to be able to adjust my permalinks and metatags on a moments notice. I need to obsess over long my long tail keywords at 2:00 am in the morning when I can't sleep or change my theme all together to match my mood.
I know this must all sound selfish, but I have to be honest with you and myself. I will always love you and stay in touch, but right now I just can't be tied down to just one blog format. Please try to understand. I owe you more then I can ever repay.
I wish you nothing but the best,
