Okay, I know what you’re thinking right now, and I can explain…
First he doesn’t post for several months, and then he does THIS?!!!… !
Calm down, people. I know as Spectrumites, we possess a tremendous amount of inertia to change, but at least listen to why I did it. I promise there’s a rationale behind all the domain name changes and theme updates. Okay? We calm now? Can we put down all the torches and pitchforks? Cool. Thank you.
Now, I know there wasn’t anything wrong with the old website, but listen to the whole spiel before you pass judgement on the new one:
For a while now, I’d been feeling uneasy about the name, The Aspie Epilogue. Something about that last word just stared me in the face, peering deep into my soul. Epilogue. Then the reason why it sat uneasy with me dawned on me.
The word, Epilogue, implies finality. Closure. An end to the story. My tagline had always been the opposite. “There’s more to the story…” It’s right there on the About page, for crying out loud! No, there had to be a better word to express my goal for the website.
But what is my goal, you ask?
The Aspie Epilogue has always been about continuing the discussion about Autism Spectrum Disorder in a safe, expressive environment. In short, to hold a dialogue, if you will, with my viewers/readers, on the issues that matter to us in the ASD community.
Then, something happened which I hadn’t expected; I started developing The Aspie Dialogues (the video series). By the way, more are coming, just as soon as I can sit down and crank them out. Free time’s been scarce as of late.
After mulling it over in my head for several months, I’ve finally made up my mind to change the mood of the website. Gone is the tone of finality and closure implied by The Aspie Epilogue. In it’s place rises a new beginning for the website.
Say hello to The Aspie Dialogues. It’s a much needed renewal, and it’s here to stay.
So, since we’re here…
“Let’s talk about Autism…”
We have so much catching up to do.
