Well, I'm an Author Now, and I have a 2nd Book Coming Out...

... And from what I've seen it's sort of an author thing to stick with blog platforms no one actually uses anymore.

Seriously. George R.R. Martin, the mind behind Game of Thrones? Dude is still rocking the Livejournal.

Neil Gaiman held onto Livejournal long after it seemed more curiosity than useful content management system. I could go on, but I think you get the point.

It would also be cussedly impractical for me to use this when I have bought-and-paid-for URLs at Medium and Wordpress. That makes the prospect of just reverting after all the hemming and hawing to Blogger kind of hilarious. At least in my mind.

Or I may just randomly update this space once every two years. That prospect makes me smile as well. Who knows, in the end? It's all just writing on the internet, which I have learned as a professional writer is the most ephemeral thing, no matter how much you get paid to do it.
