I guess now is as good a time as any. This site will become a member of Pajamas Media (or whatever the new name shall soon be) starting 1 October. Charles and Roger made me an offer I couldn’t refuse (and they may or may not have threatened my cat).
At any rate, the only thing that will really change is the advertising. Blogads* will be going the way of the Edsel, at least around here. The topics and posting and everything else will be pretty much like it always is- me talking out my arse and generally being a jerk, you responding in kind.
My profile is up here, and it makes me sound well- the interview reads like a phone conversation, which is, I guess, what it was.
The only other change to the site is that I have finally convinced an old friend (we have been gaming together online for about 7-8 years, now) to occasionally post a piece or two, and he is going to start by attending the Serenity Preview and writing about it for the site. Should be something up later from him, if he can get his act together. In the future, maybe I can convince him to post some political pieces when I need a day off or when he is inspired. And just a quick warning- he and I score almost identically on everyone of those silly political tests you see on the Intertrons, and I am hard pressed to remember the last time we disagreed on something big.
*I really have nothing but effusive praise for Blogads and Henry Copeland- this was, for me, a better deal and something I really wanted to get in on at ground level and should not in any way be viewed as dissatisfaction with Blogads.
