Testing, 1, 2, 3, Can Anybody Hear Me

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 16.884% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

So really, I’ve needed to update my website for some time – it’s never that wise to hitch your author-star to a site that could go MySpace-up at any time.  Hence, “making a real blog” has been on my agenda for months now, rather like replacing the screen in the front door or really scrubbing the grout out of my tiles.
In any case, if I’ve configured this right – which is not guaranteed – and if LJ is sufficiently returned to form that it will allow cross-posting – then this single post should be here, Dreamwidth, and LJ all at once, hence throwing Google into recursive fits as it sees three pages with the same content.  If not, my wife will be desperately entertained by the melodious sounds of my cursing.
More posts will be forthcoming, natch – I have new stories never before seen on the Interwebs!  But let’s try this first, k?

    I can hear you! The comment field is italic for no apparent reason!
    (I am unsubscribing on LJ and resubscribing over here, where things are much prettier and more functional, italics notwithstanding.)

      It occurs to me that I don’t know if you’re moving your whole blog, or just the more writerly stuff. Any information on that?

        I’m not moving so much as I am mirroring. LJ will be my home base for as long as it can serve in that area, but between LJ’s traffic drop and its actual drop, it’s clear that I can’t stay there forever. Plus, I need a more permanent place to hold my writing stuff, man.

    Hail, oh mighty Ferrett. I do see your blog, the mightiest in all the land. It is a wise choice you have made, to blog elsewhere than on some fading platform that might go mammaries-skyward at any moment.

    Er…the grout is a good thing. The grout is the good stuff between the tiles. The stuff on top of the grout is gunk.

      Whatevs. You might like your tiles with grout. I like mine without.

        I look forward to the eventual post about your bathroom wall collapsing. 😉

    Gorgeous theme and what a perfect background. I’ve always been a fan of Elegant themes, so I’m happy to see that you found a template (for now) that you like.
    Also, welcome (again) to WordPress.

      Thanks! That background image (sadly obscured) is the Cleveland Cemetery’s Hazerot Angel, which is a very beautiful statue. I figured it was only appropriate to use local color.
