Good night all

I sat here for awhile trying to figure out the best title for this post. Alas, there it is. I have decided to leave Portland Metblogs and try something new. I want to thank Metroblogging for the opportunity to write here over the years. I especially want to thank all the readers and commenters who have come and gone leaving behind amazing discussions. YOU are why I wrote. Now off to another adventure. Take care. Be well. Live long and prosper. So say we all. Best of luck. Godspeed. Keep on Keepin’ on. Just deal.

Your Portland blogger,

Dieselboi (aka Brett)

    As Hemingway said, the sun also rises. I’m sure your new adventure will be a fulfilling, rewarding one. Wink.

    Sorry to see you go. But I’ve added Our PDX to my feed reader, so it’ll be like you never left.

    And, by the way, your post forced me to finally sign up for a Metblogs user account. I guess I’ve never posted a comment before.

    The death of Portland Metblogs…

    This past winter, I had a little falling out with Metblogs. I’d been writing for them for a while, when BOOM! Metblogs central decided to relaunch the site with a plethora of technical issues. As a technologist, I found that annoying.
    But what re…

    If you’re going to cut and paste another "Metblogs is Dead" post from your blog, can you at least paste the whole thing?

    Steve, you’re a "technologist"? Wow – best joke I’ve heard all day.

    It’s a trackback. It’s up to the Metblogs honchos to configure how trackbacks are displayed, not the person doing the trackback.

    Please let’s not to down the anit-Metblog route. That only serves to hurt people’s feelings and those people are not the deciders.

    […] Good night all | Portland Metblogs I would have commented on this post, but I had to login to do so. Buh dum bah. Oh settle down. I’m only kidding. Glad to see Brett (dieselboi) moving on to greener pastures. I’m looking forward to seeing this new effort flourish. I’m also looking forward to providing more details on that new home, next week.

    Sad to see you go, Dieselboi. Your posts have always been interesting, engaging and consistent. I’ll be adding OurPDX to my feed as well.

    you’re a "technologist"?

    Hey, I ain’t proud, but it’s a living. Those who have known me for a while think it’s kinda funny, too. But it pays way better than fixing saxophones and playing music in dive bars, and it’s got benefits, too. :)
