In the words of Billy Joel, I'm moving out...
Not a big deal to you, dear reader, but I'm moving my blog wares over to Blogger. My reasons for this are three fold:
1.) Blogger does a better job (I believe) of getting blogs read than Tripod.
2.) I used to host three other websites here at Tripod and I liked the idea of having that all under one umbrella. I stopped hosting one of them last fall, and this year, I've dropped my other corporate client. The third website is my own and is much over-due for an overhaul. Rather than remodel, we're going to rebuild.
3.) I'm adding Google ads to my new sites at Blogger. (If that can be done at Tripod, they certainly don't like to tell you how.) I've got no delusions of grandeur and will be shocked if the ad revenue is anything substantial at all. But the idea of a revenue stream is at least curious.
In addition, I'll be giving more attention to other blogs, one about Competitive Intelligence and the other about diabetes. Frankly, both of them have the potential to generate much more revenue than the literary one. Let's say those will be 75% about revenue generation, and 25% fun, and this will be the opposite - kind of like the rest of my writing career. :)
If the ads bug you, just read me on the feeder. I haven't been approved for feed ads, yet.
And if you want to get a head start to my new home, go here.
