The basic problem with blogging

constructionFor some reason, over on Facebook I feel like I can share any old thought that pops into my head.  In the last 24 hours, I’ve linked to a nifty animated gif of a Russian girl who’s a martial arts champion kicking an annoying guy in the nuts; I’ve compared road work to kitchen remodeling and complained that my city is not as expeditious about it as they really ought to be; and I’ve whined about insomnia.  None of those things seem sufficiently weighty for an actual BLOG POST.

I also blogged about local politics over on LiveJournal (and linked from my Facebook). I haven’t decided whether I’m going to continue doing my political blogging over on LJ or move it here, after this election.  The thing is, local politics is a fandom that’s of interest to a very narrow range of people. Maybe I should just keep that writing separate?  I could keep it on LJ, or set up a whole separate WordPress site for my amateur punditry. The problem with that is that I think I may be too lazy to deal with multiple blogs.

Anyway, I’ll figure it out. In the meantime, this site is coming together a little more; the page for my published novels looks great. I need to finish working on the page for my short stories. Anything else people would like to see on here?

So, my official author website is pathetically out of date and I desperately need to fix it.  I’ve decided to migrate to a WordPress site and so Haddayr is giving me a WordPress lesson this morning.

Of course, that meant I needed to set up a site and now I have a WordPress site and if you stumble across it it’s going to look sort of unfinished. Because it is. Back in the day, like, 1998, when I was first doing web pages, you’d put this SUPER SUPER DORKY “Under Construction!” image and I actually totally remember telling people, “Don’t do this! WE KNOW IT IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.”  In fact, web pages are inherently under construction at all times; that’s the point.

I promise this will be a respectable site soon. In the meantime, you can leave a comment saying hi so I know people are finding the blog, but if you point out that I ought to put in links to stories or books or anything you’re just being a snot.
