Why the new blog home?

illo from Being Jacob: a Day at the Zoo (see cover wrap & order link below).
   I have moved back to blogger for a couple of reasons. Initially, I started considering it because spammers had found my website's blog, and I was get getting dozens of unrelated comments on posts, everyday. Ultimately, it was due to inaccessibility to the Weebly site editor.

A few months back, I was forced to downgrade to a dial-up Internet connection. Other than being slower than molasses, certain sites and functions just are not available to me, like streaming video, for example.

And as it happens, I can't update my web-gallery, either. As far as updating the gallery page itself, I can easily go to the library every so often, and update any recent cover art/designs, or illustrations. It's the day to day marketing and promoting of my work (and the work of the wonderful authors/publishers I work with), the tutorials and critiques, and the much needed, interactive feedback on newly finished works and works in progress.

So, here I go creating a new blog to link to Facebook's NetworkedBlogs, Jacketflap, and a blog to send my Twitter followers to.

Hope you make yourself just at home here, as you did on my home blog.



Until next time...

  5. Awwwe. That's so sweet, Harry. What a nice surprise to see you on my blog. As a matter of fact, your book is one of the ones I am talking about today. You may want to subscribe so you can check it out.

    Thanks, Jan. I had a feeling I'd see you.

    Just so ya know, Janalyn, Vivian cheated. She saw the new blog even before my first post. Then I sent her the post before I even publicly announced it ... lol. She's sneaky that way.

    (Love ya, Viv ;P)
