Dear Movable Type

Dear Movable Type,

Remember a few years ago when our relationship was fresh? And I wrote a Dear Blogger letter? Well, I’m sorry to say that I’m doing it again. I think we should go our separate ways.

It’s been a great four and a half years. In fact, it’s the longest relationship I’ve had with any blogging platform. But I have to admit that I’ve been fooling around for a while with someone else. And although it will be hard losing my relationship with you and your family, it’s probably best if we make a clean break.

If I’m honest, I’d have to say that you kind of let yourself go once we were together. You were always a bit slow, but you’d become kind of bloated, and trying to communicate with you had become a chore.

I’m not saying this new relationship will last forever. I think I’ve realized that it’s unwise to commit, though I’m willing to see where this goes. But I do want to say thank you. We’ve gone through some crazy stuff together, good times and bad, and you’ll always be a part of my life.

Now, let’s just say goodbye. No tears. Just goodbye.

  1. Hey James! Love the new look! Congratulations on moving to WP … I’m still working on getting my site moved over 🙂 Hope all is well with you!

  2. Aside from the lack of speed and bloat in MT, what are some of the features that made you switch?

    I looked at WordPress when it was brand new and didn’t see anything that blew me away. Some of the UI elements in your WordPress install are impressive but I know you MACnally, there has to be more than eye candy to justify such a big change.

    Details! Throw me a bone!
