Meanwhile, Back At The Dot Com…

For the last few days I have been having problems with Blogger. Apparently some of it is beyond their control, such as spammers messing up the system.

I’m not a very energetic person with a surfeit of mental power. That’s why I blog; I can handle one or two short items at a time.

So when I’m ready to publish, I can’t afford to waste time, trying to get my computer/ISP/hosting service to work properly. On a couple of occasions I could publish faster on my dot com than trying to get a post up here.

I do like Blogger. It’s free and so I shouldn’t be complaining. But I’ve been spoiled by the quality of their service. But when I want something done, I get impatient, wasting energy that could be spent elsewhere.

Anyway, I needed an eXcuse to revamp my dot com, . So now it includes a half-ass blog section called “X-Rays.” I’ve only written an intro to the new section. If I publish anything notable there, I’ll mention it here. And if something bad happens here at Blogger, My Purple Elephant forbid, I’ll have a backup. You may call me a control freak, but I’m someone who doesn’t have time to deal with bullshit. I already have enough, thank you.

My website also has an archive of my works in zine form. I do like blogging because I can work on short pieces and then pick among them what I want to format into a zine.

Ahhh, I thought I was the only one having issues. Wouldn't you know that I started having issues with blogger about ten minutes after moving my computer to a different internet connection? I was convinced it was me, somehow...

Ray / Dustin:

I've had a few glitches now and then, but by and large Blogger continues to work fine for me. However, The Other Side of Truth may be moving to a new home in the not-too-distant future, depending on what a certain network says about a certain series proposal... :-)

That sure sounds promising. I'll be looking to hear some good news from you soon.
