Since 2005, I've blogged at naturalartificial.blogspot.com. With a nostalgic sort of sadness, I'm leaving that platform to continue my blog here on Squarespace. It felt very, well, 2005 to be relying on so many different companies and products—Blogger, GoDaddy, Fetch, BBEdit, Photobucket, as well as my friend and web designer Manning Krull—for one single website. Also, GoDaddy is pretty gross.
So here I am. Everything in one place.
It's hard to let go of the past. Even when that past is filled with frustrating technology. Especially when it means having to learn new frustrating technology.
But it's time to move forward, so this is me . . . moving forward.
OH MAN, THIS IS HARD.
WHY IS THIS SO HARD?
WHY IS EVERYTHING IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE STUPID BEAUTIFUL UNIVERSE SO SCARY AND HARD?
I sincerely hope that you like the new website. It's all the same stuff, although I've updated my FAQ (including writing advice and my writing process) and added more extras like this official playlist for Isla and the Happily Ever After. I've also joined Instagram.
Also . . . my public email account was down for the last few months as I rebuilt this website, so if you sent me something important, please send it to me again. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for understanding.
Please take a peek around. Subscribe to this blog via email (the link is in the right sidebar of this blog) or RSS, if that's a thing you do.
And I'll see you again very soon.
UPDATE: A friendly acquaintence emailed me to give me the latest about GoDaddy. Apparently, a lot has changed at the company since the above-linked article was posted on Lifehacker! I still had a few direct problems with GoDaddy, so I have no regrets leaving them, but I'm happy and relieved to know that the company is no longer gross. ;-)
