Come Visit

This has been a hard post to write. It is my last post on Asteroidea Press.

I'm moving on, moving over.

My next post will be on my brand new blog - Radial Symmetry.

Soon enough, this will be the only post left on Asteroidea Press; I will leave it as a marker, a sign post, a grave stone.

It will be the only post unique to Asteroidea Press, as well. All the archives have already been shifted over.

This space was never actually meant to be a blog. I started it 3 years ago as a cheap way to have a website for my nascent micropress. But then I put up a post. And then another one. And somewhere along the way, I managed to publish only one chapbook, but almost 550 posts.

I've been really excited about the new website for a couple months now. Working with Steve, who is lovely and brilliant and very very helpful, to put it together has been occasionally challenging and very rewarding. But when faced with it, the transition, the last post here and the first post there?

Well, I've been quiet for a few days. I haven't known what to say.

I'm sad to leave this space. I've felt at home here. I've used it to work through a lot of ebullient chatter and a lot of flat-out grief. You've been patient with me through all of it. That has made my life richer in unexpected ways.

Thank you, and hope to see you over in the new digs.

you had me totally terrified for a moment there: i've already lost one of my regular blog reads in the last couple of weeks (brownfemipower.org), i couldn't have stood losing your writing as well.
