End Of An Era: My Last Post Here And On To New Digs

Difficult to believe that I started posting on this blog 17 years ago. 3,614 blog posts later and I think it's time to get some new digs.

This platform, the Blogger platform, has been great, but it's not being updated, it's clunky, and I think it's time to move to the new pasture over at Substack where I may also try adding in some podcasting and getting back to writing. The thing about writing right now - truthfully I find it challenging to consider in the context of the pandemic. It feels unimportant in comparison which is why I've been using this platform to provide you with what I feel is some of the best and most useful articles on COVID. I'll likely keep doing that, but realize that we're likely never going back to 2019 and so I need to find a way to do more than just curate links.

Those of you who are email subscribers here, there's no need to do anything, assuming I clicked all the buttons the right way, you should be receiving the Weighty Matters Substack at 7am EST this morning.

Thank you for spending your time with me here. 

[Also, it’s that time of year again, this Movember I’m trying to channel my best Steven Ogg from the Walking Dead as that seems somehow apropos to the times.

To be honest, I wasn’t sure I was going to do Movember this year, and then I watched a video where they discussed their funding of a first responder led program for first responders with PTSD and that got me back in line quickly. I’ve raised just over a third of my goal and would certainly welcome and appreciate your donations which you can give by clicking here.]
