G’day fine hominins! A lot has been going on on study, developing the writer’s craft, and other areas, but what’s going on for the blogs, more a week out of the last monthlong hiatus? What happening?
Not easy questions to answer, but here goes.
I’m currently taking and collating study notes from a course from the Teaching Company titled The Creative Thinker’s Toolkit, by Prof. Gerard Puccio of Buffalo State U. and challenging my own meager abilities in the domains of the creative in service to this and my other blogs, but here’s where things stand now:
I currently operate 5 WordPress blogs, 1 Tumblr site, and 1 Blogspot site for most of my publishing. They are:
The Call of Troythulu,
The Collect Call of Troythulu,
Checkerboards of the Gods,
The Exohuman Journals,
My Horrific Elegance,
The Prank Call of Troythulu,
…and my hub site currently under revision,
The Unspeakable Blogs.
I have named a 6th WordPress Blog titled Memoirs of a Cat Whisperer, which I’ll make public once I complete the first weekly posts, on what what else, cats!, with each post to be scheduled for Caturday.
All blogs are currently scheduled for posting on any given day of the week once weekly to make things manageable for my work and study schedule, while keeping up a modest level of traffic for each site.
Most blogs, save for my Blogspot site The Collect Call, have few formatted post drafts ready for long form entries, though that’s in the works as we speak, and you may expect to see longer posts on these sites before the year is out.
I’ve already published my first interview with GURPS writer, blogger, and GURPS GameMaster Christopher R. Rice, with more interviewees to be added when their questionnaires have been sent, completed, and gathered.
The present theme for most of my WordPress blogs is Bouquet, though that may no longer be the case at some point, as I may update that to something more functional and minimalist in near future.
By the time this post goes live, I’ll have updated the under-construction blog pages on my sites across WordPress.
But I want to take these sites further, and that means good solid data-gathering and planning, areas I’m sadly not inclined to enjoy doing, but which are sorely needed. Over the next few months, I’ll continue restructuring the Categories on my WordPress blogs to something better organized to streamline site navigation, and I’ll be adding a sitemap page to each of them.
I’m doing work on new fractal tutorials for the apps I use, including Mandelbulb 3D, Fractal Domains, UltraFractal 5, and others, and those will be released on my two main sites, The Call on WordPress and The Collect Call on Blogspot.
So stay cool, for those in the Northern Hemisphere, warmer for those of you Down Under, and as the Kai’Siri would say,
Talotaa frang. Talotaa kas. Talotaa tranga suulaat.
