Given that I made but two postings on this page last month, and one of those was an apologia for not posting, I'm making it official: Mermaids is on hiatus while I figure out how to deal with one of those "bitten off more than I can chew" things.*
My intellectual meanderings will continue here, on beer, and here, on politics, the latter likely less frequently than the former. And, of course, the weekly Dubya Chronicles cartoon will also show up every Sunday.
I'll will be putting at least one additional short story and Chapter Four of Truth Is the Pefect Disguise in the fiction section this month as well, maybe more than that, plus I'll be posting other material which first appeared in print, mostly in the beer archives.
You can keep track of updates to the site on the home page, where the dates of each page's most recent update is recorded in the righthand links column.
*One idea I'm toying with is combining two or maybe all three of my separate blogs into a single one and moving that to blogspot or some similar online service and letting them do all the work while all I have to worry about in content.
That would work with Mermaids and Great Disconnect, I guess (sort of a "back to the future" move, actually), but maybe not LDO, because those postings would overwhelm the others. Then again, the use of Tags in those blogging systems would allow visitors to filter out that which they don't care to read (if I understand them correctly).
Obviously, I need to learn more before doing anything. Any thoughts, suggestions or input from you folks would be gratefully considered. Thanks.
