I thought it was a matter of a few weeks, but it looks like it'll be a while still. I'm not going to play up the tension anymore (for anyone who's left tracking this place anyway) so I might as well say now what's happening - I'm changing domain.
"And that's big news why?" you'll all be wondering.
Well, because this blog was noticed by someone who understands the world of blogging much better than I do. He saw it, liked it, and offered it to bring it to a broader audience. So the new blog should become something like a column in a new site that is being planned. Which site? I'll give you the link soon. But we're talking about a pretty serious number of readers and some real responsibility (even, with a little time and luck, some actual profit. But that's just the 'someday,' and I want to focus on the now).
About focus - the peripheral effect this must have had on these pages is that I've abandoned the blog. In practice it is true since I'm not, you know, POSTING anything, but conceptually it's as far from it as possible. I've already written four or five entries in the past month or so, I simply did not publish them. I'm saving them for when I go up on the next place. When is that? Well - who knows. But I'm hoping within thirty days. The site is still under construction, but we're reaching the end.
In the meantime, of course, The Rant Machine has no more reason to be. I will publish one last post when the new site is up so that I can provide a link to it (so, don't de-tag or de-favourite this site quite yet!). Until then, however, thank you if you are still reading this and thank you if you've been with me all this time. Writing is normally a solitary trade, but even those few comments that this blog earned me have made me feel a world of good. I started this blog because I was planning on writing a book, but it looks like it's evolved into something of its own. That's a good thing. When I put up the link to the new site and effectively put the last nail on the rant machine's coffin, I hope to see at least some of you there.
Lots of love.
