We Are Here: Moving from Blogger to Wordpress

With a heavy heart. I am moving to Wordpress.

This site will be online for sometime till I decide what to do with it.

Here is my letter to Blogger.

You brought it on, Blogger. Dont blame me now! Send my love to your new lover, and treat her better.

You know how the time flies. Five years, five long years. Does that mean nothing to you? I was so young, so naive, so new. Why else would I be writing things like this or this? This was me, five long years ago. With you. Happy! Only yesterday was the time of our lives. We were born and raised, in this autumn glaze.

I had never been so happy as I was when I found you. We went through hard times together. Does that even mean anything to you now? Don't you remember?

I finally found a name in you. People knew me from you. "Where is Rich Autumns?" they'd ask. "Blogger, of course!". And you in a big way are the person in making me Rich Autumns. But now that seems, like a million years ago, when we were younger and free.

But, I cant put up with this anymore. It's not like I didn't try. I installed and uninstalled your useless app twice. Twice. Do you even realise the misery of downloading apps on Android phones with limited memories. Well, of course you do. I know I have a fickle heart and a heaviness in my chest, but I cant keep up with your turning tables anymore.

Dear blogger, I am leaving you. And, I don't even have the nerve to say it thrice.

But I cant help feeling we could have had it all. The Americans and the Russians and the occasional visitor from Slovenia. I could stay there, close my eyes, feel you here forever! Along with the people who wander on to the blog looking for apple season in Kashmir and reach here.

Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

I miss the customization Blogger had. Its all white walls here. Bare and empty. Look, dont get me wrong. I loved that you allowed me to alter whatever I wanted. But then, you removed the Dashboard and you wont reply to may queries. I mean what part of "the new layout sucks!" is hard for you to get. I can't give you, what you think you gave me. It's time to say goodbye to turning tables. I left behind all the memories of being read and noticed. And totally ignored.

But I've been walking the same way as I did. No one knows me like you do. But if I can't make you feel my love, I think it is best to move on.


Hold me like I'm more than just a friend,

Rich Autumns
