I’m Leaving You

Dear WordPress,

We’ve had a good run, haven’t we? You helped me create this little space I’ve had the honour to call home for the last two years, but I’m leaving you. It’s not you, it’s me. We want different things, I want to expand and I think you’re the thing that’s stopping me.

We’ve both played host to a wonderful audience, but I’ve always felt as if I was the one running around the kitchen whilst you were the one watching the television in the front room being idle. The truth is, I’ve met someone else, they are the complete opposite to you, I feel so creative when I’m around them, I have so much more say in the relationship than I did with you, I’m allowed my say, I’m allowed to decorate how I want and say what I want without getting the weird neighbours appearing to have their say. So I’m going with him.

I don’t know what to say, I didn’t realise you’d take it so well. As you are taking is so nicely, can I keep my stuff at yours still? It would save me having to find somewhere to keep it at his. So I’ll just leave this stuff here, okay?

I’ve had fun WordPress, but all good things must come to an end. Not only me and you but Miss Backwards as well. That’s who I was when I was with you, I’m not her anymore.

Thanks, WordPress, thank you, Miss Backwards,
I’ll pop in for a coffee sometime, look after yourselves – keep each other company,

Long time no see or write, or any means of communication whatsoever really.

I hope you got the message from that letter, if not and for clarification purposes, I’m leaving WordPress as a domain hosting service and I’m leaving Miss Backwards here, she’s reached her final station.

To say it’s been an honour is an understatement, I have been so so so lucky to have been able to share this chapter of my life with you, I have enjoyed it immensely. I have learnt so much from this little space on the internet, and along the way I have met some remarkable people. But the final curtain must call on this show, the Miss Backwards music has had its run. Thank you so much for all of your support over the years, you have all been so lovely.

Which is why I can’t wait to share this next chapter with you in a new home. You didn’t think I’d leave for good did you? Pack away those tissues and gather round, because I’m starting a new chapter and I would love for you all to join me. On January 1st, 2017 I will be launching my brand new blog! This time it really is more personal, more open, as well as having some of the same things we all loved about Miss Backwards. You will be able to find me here! At “extraordinellie” with brand new content, a renewed look at blogging as well as various other new things. Hopefully, I will see some of you there.

Thank you all,

Your one and only Miss Backwards, Ellie x
