This is a brand new blog in some ways, and a rather old one as well.
The previous incarnation of “Swords Against Boredom” appears to have gone to that great blogosphere in the sky — taking with it a few years of archives, arguments, all my links, etc. The site that hosted my blog was hacked, and attempts to restore what I had done proved futile despite valiant efforts.
But, like a phoenix, Swords Against Boredom arises again. A new URL, a much newer version of WordPress, plus some distance between this blog and the Web host that actually will give me easier control of how things go together here. I’ve lost an awful lot of stuff, and only time will tell whether I can retrieve any of it in a form I can use … but we’re not out of business.
Those of you who knew the old blog well can look for me to add links to my fiction and poetry over the coming days, plus links to other fun spots around the Web.
