Don’t Block the Plate

Not only do I have writer’s block, I have way too much on my plate right now. Now that I’ve been writing this blog for nearly a year, I’ve been considering redesigning it, not in the small ways I’ve been redesigning this page constantly, but in some major ways I’ve been trying to avoid.

In order to make most of the changes that I want to make, I’m going to have to go to another ISP provider besides AT&T, something I hate to do since I’m already paying AT&T for the right to host a web page.

What I really want to do is switch to MT and have permanent links and comments. In order to do that, I’m going to follow Jeff Ward’s advice and switch to his ISP at some pretty reasonable rates.

I hope to divide my new web site up into different areas. The main focus will still be In a Dark Time, because personal philosopy and literature remain my main focus.

But another major focus will be environmental, and necessarily political, issues as that is another of my passions in life. I’ve been reading several web sites regularly that cover environmental issues but have been struggling with how to integrate these issues into my site. Until I do get the new page up, I suggest you visit Michael Webb’s MLWebblog site for interesting commentary and links on environmental and political issues.

Meantime, I’ve finished writing the review of To Kill a Mockingbird which should appear on the Banned Books Project in the next few days. Eventually I will probably archive it on my new website but not right now.

I’m still working on a more detailed analysis of the book which should also be coming shortly.
