So Long, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye (1 of 2 posts)
(Please be sure to see my next picture and the post I have with it!!)

With a heavy heart, I'm writing this post to let all of you know that I'm leaving Flickr and will only be posting pictures to ipernity from now on. I will leave this picture and the next one up but I will be removing all others within the week. This is my home at ipernity: Janet Brien Photography

I really hoped that Flickr would offer an option to choose a layout. More importantly, I also hoped that this site would speed up again. Unfortunately neither of these things happened, and sadly, my slow connection to the internet has made it impossible to comment in a reasonable fashion. I used to be able to reply to about 75 comments in an hour or so, but since Flickr has bogged down, I can barely reply to 25 in an hour. It's a deal-breaker, and I have absolutely no way to fix this problem.

This slowdown is horribly frustrating and infuriating to me. The fact of the matter is that one of the most important aspects of Flickr is the number of friends I've made here, and the relationships I've made. I used to spend an hour every day bouncing around to all of your pages, seeing your awesome photography, and leaving comments to let you know what I thought. Those days are long gone. I can't even scratch the surface now because of the time-sink. This makes me mad, annoyed, and depressed to the point that I have been avoiding Flickr more and more. I feel so guilty and like a complete ass for not visiting or leaving comments. I feel sad because I miss you guys. It's like being on an island in a sea of tar with no way out.

I've been putting off this decision since I got an account on ipernity and made it my new home. I don't want to leave Flickr. This decision was forced on me because I have no other choice.

So, it's time for me to close this door. It breaks my heart. So many friends who I'll never see again. I just can't believe the enormous number of you that I must leave behind. It totally, utterly SUCKS. :( :( :(

I would love to have your company, if any of you would like to join me over at ipernity! My next post explains why I think ipernity rocks and maybe what I have to say is all you need to push you over the edge! :)

Saying goodbye sucks. I don't want to do it. So maybe I'll just say...see you later, Aligator...and you know the rest...
