Theme Change

As you may have noticed, the theme has changed. Not because I’ve decided to start blogging again (though I am giving it some thought) but because I received notice that the PressRow theme by Chris Pearson is being retired from the WordPress.com database.

I’m irritated by this. I really liked that theme and the only reason it is being removed is because of a petty argument that Matt is having with Chris. In fact, I would go so far as to say that Matt is trying to bully Chris in to making changes to the license his themes are under which are not opensource friendly, apparently.

I’m giving a lot of thought to moving my blog back to my domain. The reason I had it sitting here was because I didn’t want to pay for web hosting or have to worry about updating it etc. *Sigh*. I don’t know. I’ll see. If I decide to start blogging again, I’m going to have to move it anyway. So, I guess I should just do it and get it over with.

Life hasn’t changed that much. I’m single again and back on the East coast. A friend of mine has invited me to move up North where she is and I’m seriously considering it just because, well, I’m not really doing anything else at the moment. I’m letting life catch me up in its breeze and carry me wherever it goes.

I’m participating in NaNoWriMo this year and am up to about 20,000 words. Not quite halfway but still doing pretty good. This is the reason why I have been thinking about blogging again. I figure that if I finish a book and want to sell it, I should probably build up some sort of readership who would buy it. It’ll be awhile before the book is polished enough to start shopping it around to publishers so I’ve got lots of time to think it over.

Lastly, I’ve sold Figmeant.com to a really nice lady whose last name is Figlar. She’s starting a copywriting site and thought it would be an awesome play on words. I have to admit, I was really sad to let it go. But, since it was just sitting there, I figured someone should get some use out of it. I had held out the hope that one day I would start a writing community again but it was really just wishful thinking on my part. Oh well, such is life.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and that you laugh loud and dance without inhibitions. Namaste.
