The clue's in the title, right? I've decided it's time to move on and bid farewell to this old blog of mine. You may recall I toyed with the idea of putting the brakes on CHAIRSMITH sometime ago, but I carried on for the sake of .... well, that's just the point, for the sake of what? Bogged down with chairs, chairs, chairs, I felt tied to the bloody things. Don't get me wrong, I like chairs* ... but I like other stuff too.
I turned my back on this place and started afresh elsewhere. I joined the good ship Instagram using a different nom de plume and have enjoyed the experience thus far. And Instagram doesn't involve writing too many words ... brilliant! Over there I've not strayed too far from what I know and have widened my subject area only slightly - from chair-related nonsense to home-related nonsense - but change is as good as a rest, or so they say, and the rest has been a welcome one. And change is good. But. And there is a but. I've missed blogging. I've missed words!
So let's cut to the chase. I've recently been working on a new format - new blog, new name, blah, blah. I'll reveal all once this new venture goes live, but before I sign off here for good, I wanted to take the time to say a big thank you to each and every one of you for keeping this CHAIRSMITH thing afloat. I've enjoyed the ride, and it's bought opportunities I could never have imagined when I set-off on my chair-documenting journey. Healthy readership coupled with reader engagement is what it's all about, and I'm so happy I've been able to experience both. From regular readers to those that dip their toes in to research particular designs or designers, I'm truly grateful you took the time to stop by.
