ipickmynose to end (as we know it) in a month

You may have suspected something was up when I announced my final radio show. I’ve been sitting on this news for a while and trying to decide when and where to break it. I thought this announcement would be better than it coming with no warning[1].

In a shade over a month I’ll be moving. I’m going to Cape Town, South Africa for an undetermined amount of time. I won’t be continuing this blog in the same capacity during that time. I’ve really enjoyed writing it for the last two-plus years. I’ve gotten to share a lot of music I love through it; I’ve made friends and met cool bands and had the opportunity to try some fulfilling projects.

What form ipickmynose will take after I move, I really can’t say, but I know that I won’t be posting at the current rate (9.4 posts a week, by my count) or anywhere close to it. I’ve done this blog while overseas before, but I think this time I need to spend more time in and be more engaged in the local culture. After an initial break, I may come back to posting a couple times a week or maybe I won’t; I can’t really say. But if you leave me in your RSS reader or check in occasionally, I’m sure I’ll pop in occasionally at the very least.

I look forward to writing a bunch of good posts for you before I go. Thanks for reading and have a good day.

[1] I’d also like to note the influence of one of my all time favorite blogs, Tenderbutton in announcing my demise in advance. And in using citation-style notes in blog posts.

    Aw, dang! I do not approve. :P At least you’ve got a hell of a reason for the sabbatical!

  2. Oh hail no! You can’t– oh, Cape Town? That sounds fantastic. You’ll be sorely missed, but not blamed.

    We’ll miss the blog, Adrian, especially the on sale soon posts. You’ve saved my ticket-buying butt more than once. Have a great time in Cape Town!

  4. […] the month is up. I sit here with my bags packed, an empty apartment now across town and a baording pass ready […]
