If You’re Reading This, My Old Blog Is Dead

We haven’t much ti-Nah, I can’t keep that up. Hi. How are you? Been up to much? Oh, me? The usual. Avoiding writing, started streaming, Christmas stuff, depression, all that jazz, but perhaps most importantly in this particular post scenario is the fact that you’re reading this post on an empty WordPress blog.

You see, I have some financial bills coming which I fear will be quite large and while I don’t want to go into detail there because *loud ear-piercing screaming* I can say that it’s made me think hard about where my money is going, and paying for hosting on a blog I just don’t use anymore aside from vague obligations because I pay for it… not a good way to spend my money right now. So after several months, I decided to call it quits and just close it all down. We did the Twitter “end of an era” thing, but mostly I just let it die. Kind of.

You may have noticed I can’t say goodbye all that easily. That’s where this blog space comes in. See, my export file for the old blog was SO huge and old and it was just a mess. I tried to import it here, but it just wasn’t working and frankly, I couldn’t be bothered to fiddle. So the old content is gone. Most of my book reviews are on my Goodreads, but the other stuff is languishing in an .xml file in my Downloads folder.

That means this blog is empty and I really honestly don’t know if I have any plans for it, to be quite honest, but I wanted to put something here, to let you lovely folk know what was going on. I may post the odd thing. Maybe I’ll talk books, games, paganism, colouring, cross stitch, that seems to be what I’m into right now. I just don’t know. And I don’t plan to make a plan. All I know is this blog exists and if I use it, it is here. I may hold onto the dragonsandwhimsy.com domain as that is still very much a title I use, both here and regarding my Twitch streams, but we shall see.

For now, you may follow this blog if you like. If I do blog, I’ll likely post it on the usual social medias you find me on. Twitter being the big one. You can also follow my Twitch to see when I go live, join our Discord community (a group effort between myself, Rinike, and Wolfy, as well as a few others), and even follow my Instagram.

I will be going with the flow. The last thing I need right now is more obligation, pressure, and stress, and blogging should be fun. At least the way I do it.
