Update: Normal Service Will Resume Shortly.

Hello. Remember me?

It’s been a while since I last posted anything of note. Unfortunately I suffered a bad spell of health problems that made it all but impossible to blog in anyway. I’m pretty much over most of that though, I’ve been back at work for nearly a month and my energy levels are returning to normal – so normal service will be resuming shortly.

Soon I’ll be posting more book reviews. Event summaries and thoughts. Plus whatever else comes to mind when I put fingers to keyboard.

I’m even thinking of rejigging the look of the blog. That may be a disaster – as I pretty much have no idea what I’m doing. But we shall see.

In the mean time, I need to get back to watching the awesome Luke Cage on Netflix.


See you soon.

General Update

This is just a small post to let anyone interested know why the posting activity on my blog has been… uneven over the last month or so.

Almost every post I write gets scheduled for publication on a specific date/time. I do this for a number of reasons. To even out my posts over multiple days so that no one day gets too busy (I don’t want to  seemingly be spamming people). Maybe I want a review for a new book/event to be posted on the day of launch? Maybe I want to postba series of posts on consecutive days for continuity? There are many reasons.

Over the last month. I haven’t been able to write ANY posts due to some health problems I’ve been experiencing. Every post that HAS been published over that time was one that was aleady written and pre-scheduled to post in advance – or one that was mostly already written and just required some editing or such.

I hope to be able to resume normal blogging again in the (hopefully) near future, symptoms and medication side-effects not withstanding.
