Changing Sites…

If you follow this blog, you’ll have noticed that I haven’t posted in a long, long time. Something like a year.

Part of that was because I wanted to move this entire blog to my actual website, and have it as a self-hosted WordPress blog.

It’s taken a while to get it set up, because of Reasons, but it’s all done now, and this blog (and all the comments) have successfully been migrated to their new home!

As part of the move, I’m also migrating my followers; so if you enjoyed reading this blog, you’ll continue to get all the posts. If you were used to seeing my posts in your WordPress.com Reader, it’s my understanding that they will continue to show up there.

If you would prefer to get e-mails letting you know when I post something new, you can sign up for that over on the new blog.

I’m pretty excited about this, although there’s still a huge amount of work to be done before I’ll be happy with the whole site upgrade. Among other things, that blog is still using the default 2015 theme. But it will get better!

So welcome to the new blog, where I will actually be posting regularly again!

Can’t wait to see you over there. 😀

Sandcastles in Second Life

So, I wasn’t sure that I was going to keep building anything in Second Life. But it turns out that some things are just fun to make, so I’m going to keep creating there; but not all day, every day. (That was ridiculous.)

The Wheel of … Life?

I’ve been sick for days and days and days.

It’s a cycle I seem to repeat far too often.

I get some kind of virus, and it knocks me out for a week or two. Then I start to feel better, but I’m so very, very far behind. So I work like mad, trying to catch up. And then… I get sick.

Rinse and repeat.

It’s a Learning Experience…

So, I’m still working away at the Lynda.com WordPress Mastercourse. (Good thing I love learning new software more than about anything else I can do, huh?)

As part of the course, I’ve installed MAMP, and now I have WordPress up and running on my own hard drive. Which means, gentle readers, that you no longer have to worry about me doing something.. odd… here, when you’re right in the middle of reading something.

Experiments will now be confined to the privacy of my own computer.

However, since one of the things I need to do is get into the habit of blogging every day or so, I will be blogging here, too.  Continue reading It’s a Learning Experience…

Once more, into the…. Blog?

I’ve been thinking a lot about starting to blog again lately, and have decided, for many reasons, that it’s something that I should do.

I wasn’t terribly happy with the blogging service I have been using, though; and I decided to look into WordPress, which seems to do all the things I would like to be able to do with a blog.

Imagine my surprise when I realized that I had a blog on WordPress.com already! Apparently, I decided to give it a spin almost exactly four years ago, but then totally forgot about it. (Probably because of the huge amount of work required to move house.) Who would have guessed?

This time, though, I’m going to approach it the way I prefer to approach things. I’m taking a WordPress Masterclass from Lynda.com, so (hopefully) I’ll really know what I’m doing. I’m also kind of committing to writing several times a week.

I’ll be practicing here for the next few days. So if the posts seem … odd, or if the theme is changing every time you refresh the page, that’s why.

It will stabilize soon.

I hope.
