In Which Our Heroine Finds Herself Retracing Steps And Reopening The Blog.
Patreon is, once again, making Choices about their billing cycles and fucking shit up. As a result, I decided that, even though I can’t really afford it right now, I’m reopening my own blog and working out how to maintain both sites in a functional manner. Really, I was planning to do it at some point, anyway, but I’d been hoping to have more funds available when I did so. Such is Life, though, so here I am. I’m keeping Patreon as long as it’s making me money and people are subscribing, but yeah, I’m also going to be working here so I’m not screwed if everything goes tits up over there.
Ugh. So much of this site didn’t survive the WordPress plan downgrade. Most of the posts vanished, and those that remained lost things like all of the images that were in them. Now I have to decide how much effort I’m going to put into trying to resurrect lost posts for reposting, and how much I’m going to just let go of and effectively overwrite with new posts.
One definite decision is that here is where all of the blogging type stuff is going to be. Patreon is going to be solely art and writing, which will then be cross-posted over when the early access period end and posts open to the public. This will be my primary “home”, Patreon will be the office. So, here will be where I put everything else that I’ve felt unsure of posting on Patreon… bits of daily life that don’t fall into neat Art Related Content boxes, musings about art-related things that aren’t fully formed enough to end up on Patreon yet, that sort of thing. Basically, what I’d originally been intending a year ago, before the Pandemic started and the country went to shit, torpedoing everything I’d been planning into a fine powder.
So, yeah. That’s where I’m at. Now, it’s time for me to go grab the duster and broom and start cleaning this place up…
