I chose to look at Tumblr and Reddit to potentially replace Twitter. I was impressed with Tumblr. It's pretty straightforward, I put out a post not 5 minutes after joining and I got a decent response. Reddit seems to have a bit steeper of a learning curve. I may still post on Reddit as well, we'll see. For now, it's Tumblr. The Social Media links in the footer have been updated, and my (as yet) totally uncustomized Tumblr page can be found at:

I am not a fan of Elon Musk. Now that he has taken over Twitter and appointed himself as the guardian of "free speech" that nobody asked for, I'm out. Both my Twitter accounts have been deactivated as of today, even though I need Twitter to attract new followers for my email list of followers. To be honest, I'm not a fan of Mark Zuckerberg either, and I have largely stopped interacting on Facebook too except for some pages and groups that I manage, including my author page. In the coming days I will be looking for a new platform. Maybe Reddit or Tumblr. I'll post it here when I decide on something new and get it set up.

Lookee what the Webb Telescope took. Those colorful areas at the poles are auroras.

It was a former girlfriend that turned me onto the Sandman comic book series, and ultimately onto Neil Gaiman back in the 90s. She had the graphic novel series. I started reading it and thought it was pretty great. By the time I read Sandman he had already co-written Good Omens with Terry Pratchett, and had published Neverwhere. Ironically, Neverwhere is the one that I skipped, not a conscious choice, it just sort of happened. At any rate, I loved the deep dive into mythology that the Sandman comic presented, and I didn't even mind the occasional horror aspects (and if you know me personally, then you know that's really saying something.) My favorite character was of course the cheerful little gothy incarnation of death. My second-favorite was Hob Gadling, the guy that Dream keeps meeting up with in the pub century after century.

Welcome to my shiny new site. For those of you who stuck around for awhile, you will know this was not my first site, but this one has more bells and whistles than my previous site. I currently have blog comments turned off because on my previous site it seemed like the only people who ever wanted to use them were scammers and spammers, but that's probably because most of my friends are in the habit of connecting with me on other social media platforms. I may turn it on at some point in the future if it seems like there is legitimate interest.
