Over the past week, I came to a decision to expand the Military Dad blogverse. Things had become a bit stagnant of late, and I would spend an hour writing a post just to delete it because I didn’t like anything about it. I obviously still love my job and adore my family, but I was starting to lose the passion to write about it. That’s a shame since I’ve really enjoyed it over the past 2 years, and I’ve had the opportunity to interact with some incredible folks that I never would have known otherwise. I’ve even gotten a few letters from folks that said my words helped them in some way which is one of the most amazing things in the world.
Therefore, I decided to sit down and make a decision. It was either time to throw myself back into it whole-heartedly or just shut it down for the time being. The latter of those choices held zero appeal to me and actually broke my heart a bit. As a result, it was a pretty easy decision.
I want to start a little fresh, so I’m moving my primary blog over to a different platform. It will remain http://militarydadblog.com, but it will now be hosted on SETT instead of Tumblr. SETT is a relatively new platform that I stumbled across, and it has a ton of features that I’m really looking forward to. It also has the community feel that you get from Tumblr, and I’m excited about using it.
I’m not deleting my Tumblr however (now: http://militarydad.tumblr.com). I have a lot of relationships with the community here, and I would hate to say goodbye to it. I’m going to leave my archive here, and I will also continue to upload pictures, videos, quotes, and other quick posts that Tumblr is perfectly built for. Meanwhile, my written posts will start appearing on my other site where they feel like a slightly better fit.
I sincerely hope that folks will stop by, check it out, and say hi. Please feel free to leave comments on my Community Page (by far my favorite feature) or just stalk me from afar. Thank you for all the comments and support over the past 2 years, and I hope to talk to you soon.
