Good afternoon (well, it’s afternoon as I type this, here in Sunrise, IN), dear readers. How are you all doing today?
There’ve been a few changes around the Obsidian Dream since I last addressed my audience directly, and I thought it was about time to say hello to my new readers and subscribers. I really can’t express how happy I am to have you all. Despite changing blog services in February, I still got 411 pageviews, and I’ve already hit 300 for this month. You folks fucking rock, you know that?
Some, particularly my newer readers, may have been startled by last night’s post. While I do have “hedonism” in the subtitle, it’s not something I’ve had a lot to say about for a while. This is partly because sex, drugs, and rock&roll don’t actually generally make very good telling for the people who weren’t there. Additionally a number of people I know from the real world read this blog, and—despite my high ideals of radical honesty—I’m a little leery of sharing more than they’re comfortable with… especially if they were there, and might not want that widely known. That said, I do plan on talking a great deal more about that sort of thing, especially as we wind into the summer. So be prepared for the hedonism tag to blow up a little over the next 3-6 months.
Speaking of tags, I’m sure you have all noticed that I haven’t finished retagging everything after the move. It’s kinda boring, and I just can’t bring myself to do it in one big run. So I’ll keep updating posts tags (and their internal links) a little bit at time. Also, as you can see, I’ve finally got the Blogroll on the side going. The way WordPress does that is a little odd, though, so please bear with me as that goes through several permutations. I’ve also added two new “Pages” up at the top: Resources and Statements of Belief; the latter is self explanatory, the former is intended as an index of internet resources for the more serious scholar-types among my readers. In sum: the blog remains “under construction” as they say.
As always, your input—as the consumers of what I produce—is welcome. How can I make this blog more readable to you?
Thank you, again, one and all, for reading.
