I'm pretty sure that anyone who knows anything about me will know that they can safely bet their home that by October 15th, there will be nothing left here but a link to my new site. Right now I have four options to use without doing anything at all. Both the Steampunk Empire and Goodreads offer use of a personal blog page to their subscribers. I have a WordPress account that I have never used because frankly, I'm not computer-savvy enough to figure it out. That could change. I also have a Blogspot page that I haven't used since 2012. All the old posts are up there, and that could be entertaining. There's also a possibility of returning to writing.com, where they offer a blog as well. Lots to think about. Watch this space for updates!
