I suppose this belongs in the “about” page, but today I’m just going to talk about what this blog is and isn’t.
This is not a political blog, not entirely, although I will frequently discuss politics and particularly my own views on political subjects. My views can be summed up in the statement by the late Barry Goldwater: “I would remind you that extremism in defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in pursuit of justice is no virtue!” This mostly makes me a “small-l” libertarian minarchist
This is not a writing blog, not entirely, although I will talk about writing and related subjects from time to time. What restrains me here is that I recognize that I am a very small fish in a very large pond and, frankly, most of what I’d have to say others with more cred than I’ll ever have have said before.
This is not a Goth blog, although I do appear to fall within the range of the “Goth” subculture. On the outskirts maybe, but within the range. And as such, I will occasionally write on topics related to Goth Music, Goth/Symphonic Metal (Hmm, ought to do a music post sometime where I collect some YouTube videos of some of my favorite songs), and Goth Fashion. And also my own perspective as a libertarian Goth.
This is not an Asatru blog, although from time to time I will talk about Asatru and my own practice as an “Asatru leaning agnostic” or perhaps a “Practitioner of, if not a believer in, Asatru.”
This is not a “promo” blog, not entirely. Sure, I’m hoping will come here, read what I have to say, and be moved to buy some of my work, but I’m not spending all my time trying explicitly to “sell” my stuff. You’ll get occasional snippets and news items about releases and the like but mostly I’ll just rely on the “My Titles for Sale” page and the list of clickable covers on the blog to do the selling work. (So, please, check them out.)
All these elements, and more, are part of me. And that’s what this blog is about. Me. So come in, kick your shoes off, and let’s get to know one another.
