Grand Re-Opening



Welcome to the grand opening of my new blog, The Damage is Done! Come on in and take a look around.

If you were a reader of Switch2 Plan B, don’t bother looking for it. It’s not there anymore. I lost the domain name. (Pro tip: make sure Google Apps has your current email address.) But I do still have access to the nearly 400 posts in the archives—spellbinding tales packed with pathos, jocularity, and wonderment.

I’ll be serving up the same junk here.

When Switch 2 Plan B disappeared into the cyber-limbo, I had 72 followers, and I was very proud of that fact. I’d like to rebuild that list here.

So to kick things off, we’ll be having a little contest with prizes. All you have to do is click on the “follow” button in the right-hand column. Next week or so I’ll be drawing two numbers at random; the followers whose position on the list corresponds with the number will receive a $20 gift card to Amazon.Com.*

And if the follower chosen was referred here from another blog or FaceBook page, that blogger or FB’er who sent ‘em here will also get a $20 gift card.

Diabolical, yes?

See, I’m not above a little graft and payola to build my list back up.

Now, I know I won’t get anything close to 72 followers in one week. But it’s nice to dream.

Next week: True stories from the firehouse. Stay tuned!

So, since I was like the number 2 follower to re-find you, I'll still be in the drawing, yes?

I'll give you a shout-out on my blog probably tomorrow and head people this way. I'm not really s'posed to be blogging at work. *shhhh*

Yup...you, Rachel, Julie--everyone on the list is eligible!

Rachel said...

So what constitutes an "employee"? Just curious, ha!

Congrats on your re-opening!

Wow, that is quite some prize! Firefighters have disposable income like that?

Welcome back. I followed you before I knew about the money. That's gotta count for something.

Mr. Daddy said...

I was dismayed when you lost your domain. I've been searching for several weeks, glad to have found you again!

I wasn't following you before, but I'd pop in from time to time to visit. But since your wife is so cool I'm going to follow you too! :)

So hmmm. I suppose that I now need to add this NEW blog address to my list on my (never updated) blog, huh? Because even though I don't write there anymore, I DO check the site to see if my friends have an update. And I guess I somehow thought that this new address would just sort of take over the old one, or something like that. ??? No, I don't know either. Just know that I am going now to add this to the list and take the old one out. iow... I vill be baaaaaack...

Glad that I found you again. I had my stomach drop when I went to read part 3 of your last post and it was just gone. I don't think you will have a hard time getting back to your 72 followers!

Christie said...

I'm your newest follower!
