First up, I’m rocking the nightly WordPress build. You guys are in for something gorgeous, seriously – the UI is just so pretty, and everything seems so much faster.
Second – the overwhelming response I’ve had about merging my site down is that I should just do it. Most people are aware of what I do, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to get things to where I want it to.
What it does mean however is reorganising a couple of bits and pieces, which means the archives are going to ‘go away’ for a little while. Probably no more than a week, but the best laid plans tend to go sidewards when you’re me. While I’m at it, I’m going to fix a couple of tiny things in the code of the design, and make things a bit better.
So welcome along for the ride. It’s going to be a lot of merging down and merging into various bits and pieces.
I am still keeping a couple of blogs seperate – one of which is ‘bipolarbears’ – because it’s a community in it’s own right. Places like lit-for and other projects that are community based are getting evaluated on a site by site basis.
But what is going to happen is there’s going to be more geeky stuff on here – whether it’s tutorials, or talking book formatting, editing and gaming. I already keep a game design blog over at Proud Lion, so I’m going to start re-running them here with a link back, and start moving on with the projects that I’ve got going on. Wordpress tutorials and some other fun stuff can get split off onto other domains, with various advertising. It’s going to take a bit of setting up, but I’m planning as we speak.
I’m also going to keep track of what the merged down domains bring in – if it’s low, I can let them go, but if not, I’ll have to look at it from the perspective of what it’s worth to me. For now, I just need to handle the merges and how we build the new archives.
