Agenda

Hey there, spooky people!

I know I have been absent a lot lately, but I have medical issues which have kept me from my usual breakneck pace and there's simply nothing I can do about that. Luckily, I got some medicine which is supposed to help and then I go to a specialist the next couple weeks to see what the prognosis is and what comes next, so all things told, it's going to continue to be slow for the immediate future, but will pick back up shortly.

The other thing I wanted to mention is that The Weirding still needs to be upgraded and that is becoming more and more important with each passing day - particularly since I've had to sit so many out lately. That's going to get more attention in the coming weeks, which means less attention will be here.

You will notice some changes around here as well, though. I changed the blog templates several weeks back and then gave them some time to work-out the kinks. The OddBlog template performs beautifully and I love it! However, I have to be a bit more creative with the advertising, due to limitations with the layout, and I am not pleased with what I currently have, so I'll be moving things around and changing stuff.

I would really love to hear more from you guys! Honestly, I don't know who reads The OddBlog - what your ages are, what you do, what else you're interested in - I don't even know your gender! And that works against me on so many levels, but particularly with the advertising. Regardless of whether or not I make money, the ads I choose to feature are supposed to appeal to you - hopefully introduce/direct you to other products, services, and sites that you'll like. Not knowing much about you means I have to just guess. So I really wish y'all would get more involved.

The upswing to all of this is that I have had more time to read and research, which means more keystone paranormal posts are on the way, but there is no ETA. In the meanwhile, we'll have more odd news as usual, a little humor, a little weirdness, and all the usual.

Oh! And I am going to start focusing more on food. When you think about it, what we eat, how we prepare it, and everything else cuisine-related is so important on so many levels that I can't believe I didn't consider it before. It relates to history, society, psychology, occupation, religious/spiritual beliefs - it is so crucial to everything that something as simple as a regional recipe can form the foundation of research. We Southerners have black-eyed peas for New Year's in order to ensure good luck, while the Germans eat sauerkraut, and one's diet is the basis for much of Chinese medicine.

Very broad, interesting, in-depth subject that we will be delving into more and more. It will be useful too, since I'll be imparting all kinds of recipes along the way.
