Alright, you're just freaking out now aren't you? "But I just left the page, how did I wind up on the same page again? Is this one of those time slip things? Am I gonna meet my future self?" Calm down and let me explain things.

I've been blogging now for five years and I've had a great time doing it. Since I started, I've been knocking around with a few templates here and there to get the right feel and look. Also, Blogger at the time didn't have the tols and gadgets I wanted to make my page look like I could be part of the big boys. Since then, they've updated their look to suit users who want things like video, photos, RSS feeds and more. By that time, I was working with a mess of an HTML and was starting to get fed up with the clutter. I couldn't read my own posts, to be honest.

Then the eveiction happened.

I knew that I needed to start over again after a long hard battle and after a good bit, I found a great place. It's smaller, it's cheaper and thank God/Budda/Muhammed/Pesci I got it. It just tells me that now is the time to start fresh. You made mistakes before and now is the time to regroup. Hence the revamp here.

I always did like the origingal name for the blog. After a bit of Googling, I found out that there are other Sam-a-ramas around and while there may be millions of Sam Johnsons in the world and beyond, there will only be one Real Sam Johnson and that one is me. The rest of you Sams can either take your cues from me or look it up and suck it because you didn't think of this first like you did when Gmail came about. That includes you, Represenative Johnson from Texas.

For those of you who know me and the blog, other than the look and the URL nothing has changed. I'll still be the same goofy, slightly uninformed boob I was before. To all the newbies who don't know about me, get ready to be either bored or excited. I don't have internet installed yet but will do so as soon and my roommate moves in (more on that at a later time), so you can expect posts here every Monday, Wednesday and Fridays till further notice. Also, archives of the old blog have been moved here so readers won't have to miss a beat, from The RSJS Beauty Pagent to National Gorilla Suit Day to Goth Girl Blog Day. You can even subcribe to the blog via RSS so I can go everywhere with you now, which is kinda irritating if you think about me hanging around all the time.

Other than that, that's it. Sam-a-rama will stay up until the end of the year and then, POOF! it's history, so fellow bloggers and other sites please PLEASE make note of it on your blogrolls. It's time I got rid of the mess of the past and look forward to a new beginning in my life and it starts now. As for the blog, I've said it before and I'll say it again, especially to all the other Sam Johnsons out there:

Meet the New Boss. Same as the Old Boss.

Well, I for one am glad you went back to the original title. I never, I say, I never did cotton to that "Sam-a-Rama" bidness. Sounded like a ride at the Chatham County Fair.

Yeah, it was hard work getting all those other "Sam-a-Rama" sites on Google, but I like to think it paid off in the end.
