Re-establishing the WordPress portion of the page

on May 23, 2011 in Updates

Several, several months ago, maybe even over a year ago, a friend of mine did me a favor and installed WordPress to my GoDaddy website.  Then it kind of sat there, unused, for a long time, but I’m now planning on re-establishing it.  I still plan on the main page to be Shallice.com, but I’m planning on using this page, shallice.com/wordpress/blog, as a site for updates.  Not so much because I have a strong desire to use WordPress as much as I really want to have an RSS feed available for updates.  So that means that this WordPress site will only link to the main site, not have any actual content.

(At least at the moment.  As I learn more about how to use WordPress, that may change.)

That being said, there have actually already been three new stories posted since the last WordPress entry:
The Redemption of Laitres
The Disbanding of the Wizard’s Guild
The Origin of the Vampyre

These three had an update on the main page already that I will move here (and backdate).

And, finally… When I logged into WordPress, I found that there were several comments awaiting moderation.  My apologies to the posters; I honestly had no idea that they were even there.  In fact, I didn’t know that anybody other than my friends and family even knew that this page existed.  I’m really not a web guy and WordPress is a little intimidating to me (which is why the main page has the most basic form of HTML that there is).  So it just didn’t occur to me that there would be comments awaiting moderation.

When I finish the site redesign, though, I’m planning on disabling comments altogether (starting with this post).  No offense intended towards the posters (they were mostly very nice comments, though some seemed to be computer-generated spam); it’s just the way I want the site to work.  I would have done that from the beginning if I had gotten my act together and customized the blog when it was first installed.  :\  This isn’t really intended to be a community site; it’s just a place where I post my short stories for anybody to see.  I’m afraid I just don’t have the time or the energy to moderate comments.

(Some of the comments were asking permission to link to my site, and the answer is yes, that is perfectly fine.)

So, I don’t have any new stories right now (but I have some ideas), but I am going to start using this blog as an update site so that an RSS feed will be available.
