Hello world, indeed! After spending three fruitless years on a website which didn’t put me in touch with many people, but which was kindly and painstakingly labored over by a free web designer (my brother), who finally just ran out of time for it, I decided that blogging was the way to go. Why didn’t I think of it before, you ask? Because as a comparative neophyte in the web community, I was unfamiliar with a lot of concepts connected with it, which are now becoming a little less murky thanks to WordPress.com’s support pages and tutorials.
So now to blogging. As soon as I’m all set up, I plan to look for others of you out there who are interested in writing (I won’t say “creative” writing, because what writer doesn’t automatically think of his or her writing as “creative?”); then I can start to read you as well. Any suggestions of a polite kind will be appreciated, whether with regard to the content of my blog or the way the blog is set up. That’s what we’re all here for anyway, right? to add fuel to each other’s fires. Let me know your thoughts. Shadowoperator
