The Shiny New Blog

Hey! You either followed the breadcrumbs or somehow just got lucky and stumbled into the new blog location.  Congratulations either way. I’m really happy you made it here.

For years I’ve used the free WordPress-hosted blogging, and I was happy. But I’ve always felt that my web-based work was uncoordinated and hard to follow. So I recently started redoing everything!

This blog is one of the most important of the new “arms” of my web work.  This is my main blog, where I write about PowerPoint, presenting, writing, design, technology, and so much more. It’s coming along quickly, faster than I thought it would, and I’m so pleased you’ve found your way here.

Main blog? Yes, there are several others that are a bit more specific in their coverage. I’ll let you know here when they come online.

The upshot there is that old blog won’t be updated any more.  The new blog here at, a subdomain of my main site, is where all the new stuff will happen.

OK, that may sound like gibberish, so if that doesn’t make sense here’s all you have to know.

All the old posts have been copied here, so you can leave the old site behind.

The old site won’t go away, it’s just not going to be updated.  I’m only keeping the old site available for people who linked to it from their own sites so those links will continue to work.

If you want to renew your free subscription to my posts you really should use the subscription button on

Note, for the moment there isn’t a “Subscription Button.” You can, however, use this link in any RSS reader to assure you’re connected until one gets set up.  For more information on how to do that, check out this nifty document.

Anyway, keep in touch! Keep dropping in to see what happens next!
