Thank you to everyone who participated in my poll. I'm pleased to discover you want me to regularly write about forgotten mythology. On the other hand, I'm surprised you folks are interested in my "inner turmoil." "Writing Adventures" came in third and that is fine because I've written about it on and off since I started … Continue reading #Blog Polling Results
As mentioned in an earlier post, I'm at a crossroads again with my blog. I'm still happy with the exterior but the interior, the posts, I think, have reached a plateau in terms of excitement. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy posting "#Art of Fantasy" and I'm not planning to stop anytime soon. Staying with this … Continue reading Blogging and Writing and Polling
