Breaking Up is Hard to Do

7 Aug


You’ve noticed my silence, my awkward pauses, my distance. I’ve been pulling away but I won’t say why.
 
Well, I’ve found someone else. Someone who lets me be me, all of me, with no restrictions.
 
I think it’s for forever.
 
WordPress, I hate to say it but I think our time is done. You grew jealous when I linked to commercial sites, blocking my ability to reach out to others, preventing future relationships from being forged. Your intentions were good — but ultimately too controlling and possessive.
 
There’s a new site in town. And she’s all my own.
 
Welcome to my new place: barelypinkreport.com. That’s right, my own domain where I can do whatever (and whomever) I choose.
 
I can post videos and audio directly. I can host multiple pages. I can link, link, link to Amazon.com and other commercial vendors. I can grow.
 
And now that I have this nasty business of breaking up out of the way, I can write again.
 
Please join me there.

      Woo-hoo! This is definitely an ALL-CAPS celebration!

      Damn, am I happy to have that done.*Phew*

      I want to take the rest of the year off. ;)

    If you’re taking the year off.. then I’m taggin’ along.. hopefully.. some of your brilliance will rub off on me! ♥

    • Barely Pink August 7, 2011 at 10:34 pm #

      LOL! Whatever! I’d hope for the reverse, Ms. Brilliance-defined.

      • Zelle August 7, 2011 at 10:37 pm #

        blushes…. — I’m sure together.. we’d be invincible.. :-)

        The book of our exploits would be called .. “Not IMPpossible”!

      • Barely Pink August 7, 2011 at 11:31 pm #

        Oh…a book about our exploits.

        Chapter 1: Pink & Zelle go to a party.

        Chapter 2: Pink hides while Zelle socializes.
        ;)

    Congratulations Pink; your new home is as special and beautiful as its creator.

    • Barely Pink August 7, 2011 at 11:31 pm #

      Thank you, Gern! And thanks for your input through the process!

    Wow! It looks great. Congratulations, Pink! When will you officially give up this site — should we change our links to the new one now?

    • Barely Pink August 8, 2011 at 12:02 am #

      I’m sad to see this place go…really. Isn’t that goofy — feeling sentimental toward a web address?

      I’ll post here and there for the next couple of weeks, but any time you want to change the link, it’d be appreciated. Thanks!

    Chapter 3: Zelle meets a tall, dark, and handsome Top looking for trouble… so she introduces them to “PINK”… “trouble personified”.

    • Barely Pink August 8, 2011 at 12:04 am #

      Trouble personified…I like that. And I’m sure you wouldn’t have ANYTHING to do with getting me in trouble, would you, Zelle?

      Is that a bus I hear?
      :P

      • Zelle August 8, 2011 at 12:35 am #

        Chapter 4: Zelle drives bus onto Fiddler on the Roof stage humming.. “Matchmaker, matchmaker, make her a match, catch her a catch!”

      • Barely Pink August 8, 2011 at 8:33 pm #

        Chapter 5: Zelle runs over the tall, dark and handsome Top, while Pink sings, “Ding Dong, the Top is maimed”.

    The new site looks great! Reading that had me worried for a bit, I thought oh no, what happened to D??

    • Barely Pink August 8, 2011 at 12:20 am #

      Thanks, Lea! Yeah, it sounded a little like a ‘Dear John’ letter, huh? I’m sneaky like that. :P

    Wow, great Pink, your new site looks simply wonderful.

    Love and hugs,
    Ronnie

      Thanks, Ronnie! I really have a lot to do on it still. I’m learning all of the coding and it’s driving me batty. I’ve been cross-eyed for two weeks. And not that terribly pleasant.

      But I see a fix for that unpleasantness on the horizon. ;)

      Hugs to you,

      Pink

    Pink, sorry I’ve been away, but the new site looks fab! I also worried for a mo’ there.

    • Barely Pink August 8, 2011 at 8:36 pm #

      Hellooooo, long-lost dd! While I’ve missed you here, I can certainly understand the need to get away. Hope you went somewhere fantastic!

      Good to see you!
