I’ve got a pretty big problem.
Blogs, they’re hard to keep up with, aren’t they? I usually don’t even like that word. Blog. Blog. I usually just say to someone, “Hey, check out my website,” because to hell with saying page, too. Of course, when I was younger, I had plenty of throwaway Angelfire and Geocities and Tripod pages, and they were rampant with the usual eyesores of childhood website creation: spinning gifs (remember that little “UNDER CONSTRUCTION” sign?), blinking text (I’m sorry), hit counters (they never made it past double digits), and guestbooks (thank God those died). So because I’m no longer a 14-year-old Netscape user, this is a website.
So, back to my problem: writers need websites. They need to establish an online presence to promote their work and act as a central location for everything they do. So that’s what I’m doing – for about the fourth time. Maybe this time, it’ll stick! I’ve had a pretty unfortunate track record in the past of getting started, then totally bailing.
I promise not to bore you as you read this with too much shop-talk (better writers with greater experience already have more efficient advice available!), but you can expect that I’ll periodically update with topics that interest me, excite me, inspire me, or infuriate me. It won’t always be about writing. It likely won’t always be good or even remotely intriguing. But it will certainly be a website, and that’s a hell of a start for me!
