Dear Blogger/Blogspot,

We’ve been together for what… three years now? Almost four? Wow. Time flies when you’re having fun. We’ve had a good time together, writing and publishing blog posts. But you know, this last month, I’ve been seeing another blog… and I think that the grass is greener there. So… I think we should still be friends… but I think that I might be moving to WordPress soon.

I hate to hurt your feelings, and I do stay up at night wondering what the move will do to our technorati rankings, but whatever. Change is necessary. Evolution is necessary. I need to spread my wings. So sometime in the next few weeks, I am going to start moving all of my stuff over to WordPress.

It isn’t anything you did. It’s just… I need more. Cleaner pages, better reporting, more control over my own posts, better integration with what will, over the next year, become a more comprehensive website.

I will keep you and all of our friends updated, but I wanted you to be the first to know: the brandbuilder will be moving to WordPress in the next few weeks. I’ve played with the idea several times in the past, but now that I have been testing WP for a few weeks, I understand why the move is necessary.

I’ll keep everyone updated on what should be a pretty smooth and painless little move.

Have a great Monday!

Welcome to travel week #37. I’m actually in the office today and tomorrow, but getting everything ready for Varnex 2008 v.1 in San Antonio, TX… which is kind of why the blogging has been a little bit light lately. (Sorry, being all corporate and whatnot, making sure my unit hits its numbers and all that.)

I plan to blog from Varnex both here on the BrandBuilder and the Microsoft Sherpa blog, so stay tuned. (Expect at least one blog post here to be about my air travel adventures – as usual.)

And to help things along, I’ve added a little tool to my travel kit:

As much as I love my Canon SLR’s with their GIANT 2.8 lenses, they’re kind of a drag to carry around on business trips, what with the extra bag and whatnot. The G9 is pretty tight for several reasons: 1) 12.1 megapixels. 2) It shoots jpg and RAW. 3) f2.8 lens. (Oh yeah.) 4) Full manual mode, exactly like a pro-level SLR: Manual control of the shutter speed and ISO. 5) Even with all that, it still fits in your pocket.

Boo-yah.

If I have time later today, I will tell you all about my triple-sorry experience with circuit City this weekend. It was so bad, I almost feel bad for them. (If anything, almost everyone there was at least friendly, but man, do they need process improvements.) Stay tuned.
