I’m at a turning point with this blog, and am not quite sure where to go with it. I started it in 2008, so it’s acquired an awful lot of material over the years, but the theme I used is no longer supported by WordPress, and since I’m finding it impossible to get the kind of support they used to provide (it seems that WordPress, like so many other great things offered by the Internet, has become almost totally focussed on money-oriented sites), I’m going to have to do it all over again with another theme, risk transferring it to another theme (I’m no whiz at this stuff), or let it go entirely. Recently I tried to add a widget which screwed up the home page, turning three columns into two, and all efforts to get help on fixing it have failed.
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin into the future as I remain in a quandary. So I’m letting my readers, my very dear readers, know what’s going on, or rather, what isn’t going on, in case we all wake up one day and politicworm is gone. If there’s anything here that you’d want to save, perhaps now would be the time. Most concerning to me is that I don’t know who most of you are, so if the site does go down, I don’t know how to reach you when the book is ready, or I’ve managed to create another site (though I’ll do what I can to keep the name politicworm).
Right now I’m putting what time and energy I have into the book, so I haven’t had the kind of time I used to have to create these essays. And if I was ever good at “multi-tasking,” those days are gone forever. I’m not quite to the point of nodding as I knit by the fire (meaning the TV), but I’m getting there.
I’m so grateful to you all. I wish there was a quick and easy and cheap way to get the truth about Shakespeare out to the world, but I do think we’re getting there. 400 years is an awfully long time to wait.
