We are back folks! I’ve successfully transferred everything over to Blue Host. So far as I know, I’ve worked out all the kinks, but as with anything there will be unforeseen issues that will arise. So bear with me as I work out any kinks. I have not been able to determine if those of you who followed me using the old wordpress.com features have made the transition with me–I hope so, and to me it seems likely since I kept getting notifications of your guy’s activities while I had the site down. So if you get this in your feed or however you see my posts, give me a shout out so I know you’re still around!
As for some of the other things I’d planned to do, I am holding off on them for now. It’s enough to get the blog back up and running. I’ve missed it during my hiatus, brief though it was. It’s time to get back in the swing of things, and then worry about fancy stuff.
So, we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled mayhem this week. Just a reminder that new posts go up Tuesday and Thursday each week, with the occasional Saturday post. I’ve got a lot more good stuff coming for you guys, so stay tuned!
So after much deliberation, I have decided to self host this blog. I feel it will give me better control over traffic and content, and it will allow me to do some of the marketing things I will need to do in order to make this writing thing a success. Because that is now my new goal–I want to make a living doing my passion. After all, it consumes enough of my time and effort that it might as well be a job!
So now I have a plan, and part of that plan involves big changes to this here little blog. I’ve outgrown it. I rather miss the simpler days about three years ago when I primarily used it as a way to vent my frustrations about work and to wax philosophically, but I’ve grown and so have my aspirations. I will still maintain the same posting schedule when the change happens, so you can expect Tuesdays to be an eclectic mix of me waxing philosophical and/or talking about my own life or writing projects and for Thursdays to be about the wonderfully weird in our world.
What will change is the appearance and the tone of the blog. I’m still trying to decide what direction I want to ultimately take it, but at the very least I intend to step up my game. I feel the new platform will allow me to better present my content to you, the reader. While I do write about whatever interests me, I always do it with you in mind. Whether I seek to inspire, to inform, or to induce a bout of head scratching, it’s all about you guys. Thank you so much for everything these last three years, and I hope you’ll join me in this new phase of my personal evolution!
This will be the last post for awhile. I still need to figure out how to go about all this, and I don’t want to make things anymore complicated than I have to. I’m hoping I can transfer my current subscribers to the new blog, but if not, I’ll find a way to get a hold of you all and show you the new, improved site!
It’s the Fourth of July, as you probably guessed by now. Today I just hung out with the family–caught an afternoon showing of The Amazing Spiderman, then came home and ate burgers and watched movies. I’d originally planned a blog post for today, but now I’m sleepy and it’s a holiday so I’m giving myself the night off from writing. Except for this, of course. A happy Fourth to everyone! Try not to blow your hand off with an M80, okay? :) If you need me, i think I’ll be re-watching one of the Rocky movies for the millionth time. Ciao!
