As If I Don’t Already Have Enough to Do…

I was looking through my two blogs and I realized that a lot of the subpages — the links, the Buy Stuff and Newsletter pages in particular — are woefully out of date.  I haven’t touched them for at least seven or eight months.  And to add to that, I haven’t set up a newsletter in probably well over a year.

That’s gonna change.  Not right now, and not overnight, but soon enough.  Over the course of the next couple of months I’ll be updating those blog subpages and restarting a newsletter.  That will most likely be a monthly thing, a cross between a link aggregator for my blog entries and any news and upcoming events, and maybe a special passage or two.

So how am I going to update this?  Good question.  Between finishing off a novel, writing a second one, revising that first one, heading to the UK for a week and a half in August and following that up with Worldcon — not to mention juggling all that with my Day Job — I’m going to be ridiculously busy.  But I think I can do it.

It’ll take time, and I’ll probably be exhausted by the end of it, but I’ll do it anyway.  Because come on — I’m trying to be somewhat professional here, folks!  I can do better than the bare minimum here.  Y’all deserve it.

Blog Under Construction – Please Mind the Gaps

 

Hey there!  Sorry for the mess here at Welcome to Bridgetown.  I’d been wanting to update the blog’s setting for quite some time, and of course the one day I was able to do so with not much interference, the site decided it didn’t want to cooperate.  Every time I tried to play with the customization, something crashed.  [In retrospect, I think WP was doing a server update and so most of the coding responded with LOL NOPE.  Very much like this very amusingly excellent Nichijou segment above.]

SO!

I did manage to get a nice sunset picture of Dubai for the header picture to set the new mood.  I’d like to give WtBt a much brighter view with easier navigation and readability, so I’m trying out a few different settings to see what works.

I’m also looking into different writing things to blog about — not just the writing, and definitely not just the Bridgetown trilogy!  I’ve got a lot of writing-related ideas percolating in the formerly dusty confines of my brain, so hopefully within the next coming months I will be providing you with more entertaining, informative, or just plain silly things to brighten your day.

This will be a work in progress, so thanks for your understanding and patience!
