Happy New Year, friends. Welcome to 2018! I hope this year treats you well and finds the majority of life going your way. For me, January marks another year for this blog. January first marks 10 years of blogging for My Chemical Fawn, and I think I’m ready to pack all of this history up and start something new. What, exactly, I’m not sure. Probably just more of the same. But for MCF, I think 10 years is a nice bookend to this volume of my life. So, a week or two ago, I created a new blog. I’ve only made an introductory post, so I haven’t gotten carried away with it, yet, but I believe it will indeed by the beginning of Volume 2 of my life as I feel I’m ready to enter a new season.
Thank you for all the follows, all the feedback, and all the support over the years. I have definitely pushed out some crappy blog posts, but I also think I’ve published a few memorable ones – usually the more personal ones, I think. That’s what I hope to bring more of on the new blog. This blog isn’t going away, though. As long as WordPress doesn’t delete it for any reason, I hope to maintain it here for as long as possible. The Blogging Life of James, Volume One: My Chemical Fawn, or some cool version of a title.
With that, I leave you with three things. First, is a link to my very first blog post from January 1st, 2008. The second, is a link to my new blog, should you want to join me on that new journey. I look forward to hearing from you, and will, of course, continue to follow you on yours. And third, a paraphrased quote from The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) from his final Christmas Special this year.
Good luck, good night, and Godspeed.

“Never be cruel, never be cowardly! Remember, hate is always foolish, and love is always wise. Always try to be nice, and never fail to be kind. Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind.”
