a note for now

Since I started the newsletter I’ve stopped updating this blog. So far the newsletter has been a much better way of reaching people. I had intended to update the blog with sections from the newsletter but I’ve not really felt the need.

the newsletter is under way

Especially as it will be by far the most reliable way of keeping up with my productions and being entertained by my writings. New blog posts on here will appear about as frequently as they always have done.
