I have been blogging, just not on this particular site. Mostly, I have been on dreamwidth and tumblr, on my fannish/random update blogs. So I’ve been updating there fairly frequently, both with real life updates, my ongoing job hunt, my brief experiences with Job-Having last year, and fan fiction updates.
I would like to start writing here again, though this was one of the monetized blogs, and I still feel unhappy with my experience with affiliate marketing and my attempts at writing articles for Yahoo Contributor and Examiner.com. (The problem is that I am not very good at being prolific/coming up with good articles in a variety of subjects/building a readership, and also the entire situation was causing me to have anxiety flare ups which are not fun, followed by depression, which are even less fun.)
I am writing a LOT of fan fiction.
So, I am probably going to be disposing of my blogger blogs, and working on a redesign of this particular blog. (I did some messing around with the layout earlier this morning.) It’s still not the way I want it.
I deleted the “professional” tumblr, and switched the “Publicize” over to my fannish tumblr.
I am attempting to find out how to install a donate button, but the directions I found seem to be for the version of WordPress where you are setting it up on your own server, instead of using WordPress.com.
I already have donate buttons on my dreamwidth and tumblr blogs. (Which was much easier to do.)
I’m poking at the idea of starting a Patreon, for my not-yet-posted original fic (and/or this blog).
Things I’m going to be writing about:
Books/Shows/Movies (as usual)
Fannish Things and Observations on Fannish Culture
The Job Hunt and/or Being Insufficiently Employed and Why Universal Basic Income can Happen Any Time Now Because No One is Hiring Me and Freelance Writing is Frustrating
Mental Illness and Ableism Topics
My Current Adventures in Volunteering for an Animal Rescue (Which I am Really Happy About)
My Original Fiction (Possibly a lot of blather about previous Original Fic attempts, worldbuilding, and so on.)
Fan Fiction (About fan fiction, I will not be posting fanfiction here.)
