I’m not actually sure if I’m welcoming you back to my internet ramblings or if I’m welcoming myself back to the internet, but here I am! And it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Ignoring reasons of great personal tragedy, let’s delve into more interesting things like what can you expect from this new and improved little website of mine and just how much Pokemon Go I’ve played.
Let’s start at the beginning with the Archives. You know how they say once something is on the internet, it’s forever? That is not necessarily entirely accurate. Companies rise and fall, and with them go their internet pages. I slogged through the deeper layers of the internet to retrieve what archives I could find and resurrect them here so there are some digital things for you to poke at while we get to the next portion – new content!
It’s a bit sad to me that some of my first professional writings are no longer available online because nostalgia, etc, etc, but I’m also excited to blather on about new and more currently relevant topics and to rebuild my little corner of the internet. I’ve got a few new posts lined up already and several more in various stages of completion. I’d like to keep these coming at a steady pace for you but I also need to be able to generate income with my work so that’s where things like affiliate links and Patreon enter the picture. An affiliate link allows me to earn a small commission off of purchases, without impacting the price you pay, which will help support my book and product reviews. Needless to say if I *can* put an affiliate link, I probably will and then if you like the thing and want to buy it everyone wins! Patreon is a more direct way of supporting this website – it allows you to pay a monthly subscription fee to help keep me operating. I believe the minimum threshold is one dollar a month but here’s the thing that’s really cool about Patreon – YOU DON’T HAVE TO PAY. It allows you to generously support the creators you love if you have some extra money to do so but you can enjoy the benefits even if you don’t. It would be really helpful for me personally if you could go and subscribe to me on Patreon right now.
That being said, what would YOU like to see around here? More book reviews? Watch me art in my traveler’s notebook? Would you like me to run for political office? More movie reviews? Bad poetry about hedgehogs? How can I fill the Cassandra-shaped void in your life? Let me know in the comments!
(Also, I’ve played A LOT of Pokemon Go. I’m level 37. Feel free to throw down your stats with me in the comments as well.)
