Welcome


If you’ve come here from the latest video on my YouTube page, then you can consider yourself part of the few who noticed the update. However, chances are I just linked you to this, and you’re reading this because I told you to through some means of coercion.

Or maybe you were sent here by Elias Thompson.

But regardless of how you got here, you’re here now, and you’re part of a new family. Come on, start chanting with me. One of us. One of us.

Despite what I said in the previously mentioned video, I’m releasing this website to the public early. Call me impatient if you will, but I had it pretty much done and didn’t want to sit on it for a month and a half before releasing it.

Additionally, I’ve decided that because I’m much stronger with the written word than with speaking, I’m going to more or less discontinue the vlog series. I know, I know, I can hear your disappointment from here (odd how it sounds similar to apathy) but it just wasn’t doing it for me. My focus, now, will be more on my stories and written blogs. However, I may still do videos, just not as often. Mainly, anytime I feel the content would be best served on video, I’ll put it on video.

The blogs I’ll post on this site will largely have to do with writing, and I also have designs to get more into the WordPress community. Specifically, I’ll be seeking out other writers to review their works, possibly have them review mine, as well as spotlight anyone I find interesting or awesome.

There is another reason for me choosing to do this when I did: Camp NaNoWriMo. This is a challenge similar to the November National Novel Writing Month, but you get to make up your own rules. Mine, for instance, will only be about 30,000 words, which should bring my last NaNo project, Sliceup to novel length.

So be sure to poke around on the site. I know it’s not much, but hey, I’m working with limited resources, and I’m no programmer. Still, I think I did a decent job with what I had.

Have fun, and thanks for sticking around.
