Sorry guys, this is one of my non-post posts. There are just so many things going on, so many moving pieces, I want to make sure everyone is in the loop.
First off, today is the last day of the Who Has the Best Online Dating Profile Contest (click here for more info). It’s been a lot of fun for me, checking out all of the great profiles from daters all over the world. And, in a lot of ways, it’s helped to reaffirm what I already believed – that there are LOTS of awesome people out there in online dating land.
Next up, I want to remind you all again that I’m going to be packing up the blog and moving soon. My original plan was to do it by the end of November, but a big new work project bumped the move to the backburner. Right now it looks like it will happen right around Xmas. My url will stay the same, but I’ll be self-hosting using a WordPress theme. The change will affect everyone who currently follows me via the OnSugar network. If you’re one of those people, I hope you’ll consider following me via RSS.
Lastly, I was totally serious about my request for More Audience Participation. I have to create a whole new OkCupid profile, from scratch, before I can email any of those guys (my least favorite thing about OkCupid is that you can’t hide a profile, it’s either active or deleted and so when I decided to take a break from dating I deleted mine). But I’m planning on getting my new profile up (with new pics, as the old pics are a year old now) and initiating communication with some of the guys you suggested and will report back as to how that goes. I’d love additional suggestions (think of the “how we met story”).
