This is the New Home for the Old Weirding

For those of you just joining the fray, this is the rundown on the history of the whole mess:

I started the BlogCharm blog, The Weirding, several months back. It was dedicated to the paranormal, supernatural, ufology, and all such as that. I got up to like $11.00 on there and they sent me an e-mail, explaining that they couldn't afford to pay anyone right now - well, that they were looking into differences in tax laws between here and Canada, but whatever their beady little eyes and flapping heads said, it was because they didn't have the money. I say this with authority because they then sent me a post, explaining how they had been miscalculating money and so forth, then sent me a post saying my whole $11.00 was now a whopping $1.53.

For anyone to whom $11.00 over the course of like 8 months doesn't mean something, you should be aware that I had to make a concerted effort to get off my ass and find shit to blog about - even on days when there really wasn't anything and I honestly didn't feel like fucking with it - and I did this for like 8-9 months to make $11.00. And then was told the most I could get was $1.53 - but I wouldn't even get that until I had made at least $8.47 more!

I felt ripped-off. Doubly so after I sent them not one but two "customer service tickets" over not one but nearly two weeks, and they finally responded with a simple, "Dear Sucker..." letter - one I can't even reprint here for you because it is a violation of their TOS. And I'll tell you why I'm playing their little game:

I tried to go over there and start deleting posts in order to move them over here? Wouldn't let me. No joke. In other words, everything already posted over there is stuck there; I can't delete it as I wish and do with it what I want.

BlogCharm not only ripped my skinny, cracked, white ass off, they also usurped my original content and material!

So I moved the blog over here and I'm going to go ahead and start posting the kind of stuff that makes people come back. A lot. I've been reading/researching these subjects literally my entire life and have countless books I've collected over the years - some of which have come from as far away as England - which delve into pretty much every aspect of the Weird and Unknown that has been tapped thus far.

And I'm going to continue to beat-up on them. Just now and again, when I want to.
