All good things must come to an end. I managed to reclaim my old blogspot url by moving my other adolescence / rap blog over to madrastales.blogspot.com. That was a different side of me, one that I elaborate in my final post on that blog.
Since Posterous is now dead, I'm moving back to the place I started blogging back in 2004. I had a harrowing time going and autoposting all my old posts. I've lost all the comments and timestamps and permalinks. I'm disappointed, but it is what you do. Pick up the pieces and move on.
The URL may be my own domain, but the underlying blogspot address has not changed. I hope one day Google doesn't shutter blogger just like it did Reader recently.
That would make me a sad panda.
