So long...and thanks for all the Joomla

Hello dear reader

Alas the time has come.  I must bid you all a fond farewell from this Joomla site.  Most of you have probably noticed that I have written very little over the past little (ok, long) while.  I really thought my creativity and desire was coming back, but it isn't.  I just can't do it anymore.  Honestly, dear reader...I am bored with the site.  I used to have a purpose for writing, for creating the I can't write to save my life and the site has gone stagnant.  And so, Joomla and I bid you au revoir.

But......but wait.  Don't frown.  Don't fret.  Don't freak.

Yes, dear reader...there is a 'but'.  And along with that 'but', did you notice the wording of the aforementioned farewell?  How many of you savvy readers caught it?  (The real question should be 'how many of you care', but I don't want to go there.) No, dear reader, I am not leaving.  I am not quitting.  As a matter of fact, I am hoping to move into a whole new realm of creativity.  I am hoping that by throwing myself a curveball, I will get excited about writing again, stoked to create.  How do I plan on doing this, you ask?  Let me explain.

I have to give a shout out to my friend Lance.  He and I were talking at work, and he threw out the idea of website creation.  He also mentioned WordPress, and how much it has changed and evolved.  And so, I looked into it.  I did a quick install to my website and did a wee bit of poking around.  And you know, dear reader...I could get into this whole WordPress thing.  It is a brand new learning curve for me, but it seems that it will open up more doors for me.  I will be forced to redesign...and that will force me to write.  So, thank you Lance...I really do appreciate it.

So, what becomes of all the work I've done with then?  Well, as of right now, I am planning on keeping the content roughly the same.  I will slowly transfer all my articles over, and along with that, I will also transfer the Cancer Blog over.  How that will all look is still a mystery.  When it will all happen is also undecided.  But it will happen.  I will also have my photo albums.  This is all where the creativity comes in.  We'll just have to see.

At some point in the near future, this site as you know it will go offline.  It needs to go away so that I can implement the new  So let this be notice to you, dear reader.  Some day soon, the site will be gone.  But it will be back...bigger and better.  As I go through the planning stages, I will try update with short snippets here and there.  So check back often.  The work is starting.  And I am excited about it.

Until next time, so long and thanks for all the Joomla.
