New Beginnings – New Poetry

OK, everybody. As you may or may not know, I closed down my old and trusty poetry blog in late December. Not because I didn’t plan to continue writing, or because I wanted to stop publishing the things I had previously written, but because I wanted to change hosting provider – both in order to save money, and in order to be able to further develop the site.

So, here we are. This is the new site that I have just set up today! Don’t let the lack of content and style scare you away already; it is a good beginning. Now, I just need to transfer the content and develop the layout. And I am super motivated to do that, now that I finally can.

I am also really excited to know that I have a place to publish all the new poetry I have written since I last updated the old blog. Not that I couldn’t have published it there of course, but it was starting to look really dated, and searching the poems was impossible – also, the content became all the more muddled over time, as categorizing things as either poetry, translations or artwork was a near impossibility.

Finally, I am done with that – ready and able to start a new chapter!

So, what are the plans?

I can already start to share some thoughts on the future of the site as well. I am hoping to integrate a webshop in the near future. How near? I can’t say yet. It depends on how busy I’m going to be… But I am steadily working in that direction. When that is done, you will be able to purchase ebook versions of everything I have written – and I may also take a closer look at ‘Print on Demand’. I am also planning to expand the shop with some of my artwork – but I’ve got to start somewhere.

I hope you will come to like this new version of the site, and bear with me in the beginning until the setup is complete. Locate a comment form and give me a heads-up if you have ideas you’d personally like to see implemented – and otherwise, be patient for now and until I have it all sorted out.

Thank you for dropping in – and see you, hopefully, later. 🙂
