This is it. The last day at WordPress. I feel like I’m walking through an emptied house, making sure all the closets are cleared out before getting behind the wheel of the car for that last drive away.
The move to Patheos is almost complete, so this is a short note here to say that I’m going to take a day off from blogging (I KNOW, RIGHT) and give y’all time to locate, re-bookmark, and start hanging out on the new site, link right here, you betcha. We’re still ironing out the tabs and banner heading and whatnot but I want to get started.
I can’t say enough how excited I am about this move. Patheos has always been a favorite catch-all site for me for the conversation it hosts about all facets of religion, humanism, and freethinking, and I’m thrilled to be asked to join that conversation and add to it.
I really hope that y’all will follow me there. I know Disqus can seem kind of persnickety sometimes, but I’m going to be running with the same commenting rules and expectations there that I do here. I really hope we can maintain the community we’ve built up here–together–over the last couple of years.
When I look back at those first few panicky, uncertain days of this blog’s life, I am struck by how far we’ve come and how amazing a ride and journey it has been, and you–yes, you, you reading, right there, I can see you through your computer’s microphone holes*–have a lot to do with that amazing journey.
See y’all at the new site on Tuesday!

* When I worked in computer tech support for a major computer hardware company, I was downright shocked at how often consumers called in saying stuff like that. I should probably write a post about it sometime. Seriously, I’ve got an embarrassment of riches as it is for post ideas; you should see my drafts folder. It’s probably almost as bad as The Apostate’s.
