Alright guys, so this is probably going to seem abrupt, but I have perfectly good reasons for my actions!
First of all, what’s this all about? I’ve migrated my blog to Blogger. Every post I’ve made since the beginning of 2012 to this day will now be at the new home for my blog. My domain, paxcorpus.com, is also in the process of changing over in order to redirect visitors to my new website.
What’s this mean? Well, I’m going to leave this website up and running for archival purposes. Sort of a monument to everything I’ve written and done up until this exact moment. New posts will now be made over at paxcorpus.blogspot.com, which will probably redirect you right back to this blog until the DNS servers have completely updated. Could take up to 24 hours, I believe.
My reasons for doing this? WordPress, for the years I’ve been using it (since 2008), has been sort of annoyingly restrictive in what I can and can’t do. For example, requiring me to pay for CSS changes and the fact that I can’t even edit any of the base HTML.
I’m also in the process of making Google+ my author command center, so this is a huge benefit for me.
Plus, once paxcorpus.com leads to the new blog, you’ll see just how clean and nice it looks. I decided to chop out a lot of the word clutter you can see on the old blog. And there’s a totally sweet background image from my published novel “PaxCorpus” and the in-progress “Escape Velocity.”
I know I’ve been recently receiving new followers for the WordPress blog (which will be at the address dantem.wordpress.com, by the way) and I think that’s about the only downside to my migration. It would be awesome if one, five or any amount of you followed me over to Blogger but I do not expect that to happen at all. I understand that people who follow WordPress blogs are interested in WordPress blogs. So, it’s all good no matter what.
Thank you for stopping by, though! Hopefully I’ll see some of you at my new location and join me in the experience of simply being an indie author on a quest for glory.
Until next time, Ryan S. Fortney. You can’t move forward unless you make changes.
