Well, it's just, like, a public service announcement. When I DID used to blog here, people would sometimes ask me if I'd turn the tracking thingee on so they could receive emails of new entries. I was always hugely paranoid about that. Then I moved my blog to a different platform, whereupon a whole bunch of Pandy's members PM-ed me to ask if I would enable RSS feeds so they'd be able to follow my blog more easily.
Because I am weird, and because I didn't understand how RSS feeds work, I was totally resistant to that idea, too.
Well, long story short I've now gotten all mature and educated and shit, and have finally enabled RSS feeds on my blog, which is the same exact blog as this blog, only, you know, current. More or less. Yeah, so now people can "follow" the blog.
Honestly, though, I'm not sure anyone who used to read my blog here would be that interested in it any more. I mean, when I was here, I was writing primarily about the weird shit that happened with my pervert uncle. This place is where I found my voice, and where I found the courage to talk about my version of surviving. The responses I got here were so invaluable to me as I navigated my way through finding words for it all. I say "were" like it was in the past, but a few of you continue to visit and respond and I probably don't say enough what a big deal that is to me. In any case, I suspect I'll always feel like Pandy's was my very first safe online place. What I'm trying to say is nowadays I don't write as much about specifically survivor-related stuff. Or maybe I do, only in a different way. I don't know. So it might be kind of stupid for me to even be making this announcement in the first place. Gah!
Did I mention I feel kind of self-conscious even posting this here?
Okay, fine, whatever. Onward. So this message is for those of you who once upon a time asked if I'd turn on the RSS thing. Er, and for anyone else who wished for a way to keep up on my incredibly fascinating life but didn't feel compelled to send me a message about it. Oh, I mean, not that you're not welcome to come visit even if you weren't here when I used to blog here, or were here but didn't read blogs, or -- oh for god's sake. Look, if anyone gives a rat's ass, you can follow my blog now and here's the stupid link, damnit.
P.S. Wow, I totally suck at this kind of thing. I come here to write a nice, simple, informative announcement and what do I do? Explain why no one would want to read my blog to begin with and then wrap it up by swearing at everyone.
