Well, it’s done. The initial setup of the six new blogs, with links here, is complete. They are: The Checkerboards of the Gods, The Exohuman Journal, The Hypershard Dispatches, The Gawds of Terra, The Impudent Algorithm, and We Are The Wavetouched.

I’ll start working on post-drafts, blogroll lists, categories, pages, and then make the blogs public when their debut entries are finished and ready for posting. Once they go public, I’ll make adjustments to the SM sharing settings, currently disabled, and all shall be ready.

Thanks to my friend Trisha Basu for giving me the idea for this little project. It should be much easier to keep my blogging on-topic with the use of more specialized sites from which to post, and no, I will not be publishing from each one at least once each day, but only as needed.

This site, my main WordPress blog, will continue to have the widest variation on content, and be the main place to show my fractals, but it’ll be nice to have places to post on places of my own elsewhere on the Web as well. Stay well, and stay brilliant, and I’ll be back on this site come Sunday.

About Troy Loy

I seek to learn through this site and others how to better my ability as a person and my skill at using my reason and understanding to best effect. I do fractal artwork as a hobby, and I'm working to develop it to professional levels, though I've a bit to go till I reach that degree of skill! This is a crazy world we're in, but maybe I can do a little, if only that, to make it a bit more sane than it otherwise would be.
