Hey guys,

As I think I told you all I have been working on a Wordpress blog. Still basic at the moment and a lot of work to do but it's about time I started getting content out there.

With 20+ books read a year and a lot of small and big screen SFF I should be able to put out regular content.

Would love it if some of the regulars over here subscribed.

All your feedback is welcomed and appreciated.

I signed up, anything to support a fellow Bakkerite! Good job, can't wait to see a TSA blog..
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

Well TSA is due a good article in the coming weeks and I have something I am working on. (Amongst my dozens of other posts I have lined up.)

Thanks for the support MSJ - although I can't see your signup either in Wordpress or Email?

Seems you need an About page or something. A place where someone can go to read a bit about you, what the site is for, and what to expect from it.

Followed. I believe Wilshire was the first ;)
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Hey Wilshire,

I do have: https://sffden.wordpress.com/about/

The link is up on the top right - I didn't want to make this a static page as I wanted recent posts to be easily visible. Maybe set the About as the home page and add a "New Content" button to it?

Yeah I saw you following first. Classic Wilshire :)

Your thoughts/feedback are welcome buddy.

Now following.  Good choice for a first review!


Just a quick question/thought, are you purposely staying away from "rating" the book in some way?

Hey GJ,

I have given this some thought - I am not sure whether to use some sort of starred rating for the reviews or not.

There are a couple of different options I could use but I was not sure on whether to rate objectively as everyone's read is different. 

What do you think?

Also I am looking to do some SFFDen Casts - very informal and probably just put them up at random chats.

PS. I thought you would like my first review choice :) - I'm going to be adding reviews based on my chronological reads this year. I have some other planned content as well.

Ah ok, didn't see it before. I dont think I ever looked at the top banner of the page.

SR, unless subscriptions help you in some fashion, then I won't be subscribing. I don't need more e-mails. I'll still check it obsessively for new content, though.
