Well, I neglected this blog for a year. Yes I’ve been busy writing a new novel, but that wasn’t the main reason behind my online absence: I mostly blame the spam. I never knew there’d be so much. I think I’ve solved the problem by removing the old comment plugin and adding one for facebook ones instead.
Also, I couldn’t commit to blogging due to not being home as much and using that time at home for writing fiction or for leisure. Blogging on the go was impossible because my netbook was one of the early Asus ones with Linux and consequently, was perfect for writing prose in short stories and novels or poetry because it was so limited, but good for little else. In addition, my old Nokia N84 was barely a smart phone: now I have a Samsung Galaxy Note; I’m using it to write this very blog outdoors, and it’s a pretty good experience.
