I Have a New Official Web Site!

Whew!  It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here.

For years I have been landing covetously on other people’s web sites. Boy were they pretty. “Someday I’ll have to get me one of those,” I said.

Not that there’s anything wrong with my blog.  This little baby has done double-duty for a few years now, and it’s done me well. (Except for that Little Blue Lady problem, but I’ve learned to live with that.)

Don’t worry, I’m not abandoning this blog.  It’s way too much fun. But now I have a place for standard web-sitey stuff… a place for readers to go to learn a little more about me (Without scaring them with my rants about writing)  🙂

So do me a favor and hop on over and let me know what you think.  I’d love for people to look at it on different computer monitors, and on their phones.

Click around and make sure everything works well, and then let me know what you think.

You can get there by clicking the “Click to Visit” button in my navigation bar on the top far-right hand side of the screen right below my picture.

Thanks!

Happy Birthday to the World Wide Web!

Did you know that twenty years ago, August 6, 1991, the very first WEB page was published?  Back then, only a few people could view it, so no one really even knew it existed, but WOW has it totally changed the world as we know it!

I remember when I used to have a question in my head.  If it bothered me enough, I would go to the library.  Most of the time, my questions would just be left unanswered.  Now… I just Google it.  Life sure has changed.

Not everything that the WEB has made possible is necessarily good… There are things out there that I wish weren’t there.  Also, the convenience of it all has led to some bad things, like the fall of the record stores, and the dwindling bookstores.  I miss them.  Parts of progress, I guess, are not easy to swallow… although I do admit it is convenient to just buy your music or books on-line.  I do miss, though, walking in a mall and strolling through a little bookstore or a music store.  It’s just the experience of it… especially when I was a kid.

You know what else is interesting…  My kids have no idea what it would be like to live without the WEB.  Think about that.  It’s a little weird.

The WEB is part of our culture, now.  It brings us all together.  It’s why you are here, now, reading this.  It makes so much possible.  There have been a lot of inventions in our time.  This one is pretty cool, despite its shortcomings.

Happy Birthday World Wide Web!
