…but beginning of something else.

I’ve been blogging for a number of years (five) now. There have been intermissions, fallow periods and even more rarely posting frenzies. However, the underlying trend is that I’ve realised I don’t want to blog just to vent my spleen as and when my whimsy suits.

So, I’m calling a day on my blogging.

Don’t remove me from your RSS feeds so fast though, as I will still be posting.

In the past year or so I’ve been reading a lot of fanzines, all from the navel of fandom into which I have neatly fallen into since heading south. Reading these has led me to realise that firing off the odd random fast piece of writing is not my thing. Instead I’ll be writing longer, more considered pieces – with a view to collating them as a whole later.

As you’ll see I’ve tagged this post as part of issue 1. It doesn’t exist yet, in fact this is all I’ve written. This is very much an experiment – but I think that with a little more thought into the writing I might just enjoy having this thing a lot more – and that’s what this is here for. For those of you who demand their fanzines be paper, I promise to bind the results up by the end of the year, and that is a binding promise.

In summary: all killer, no filler. And a special dead tree syndication method with high latency forthcoming.
