    I'm going to publish a WordPress blog to share my new short stories.

    I already launched a preliminary blog with my smartphone. I am going to customize it and get a Premium package when I can get to a proper desktop computer. Since sharing short stories on LitNet has become such a hassle and the site has a ton of technical dysfunctions because of the sketchy "cloudflare" IP I think this would be a smart choice, puttin' on my hiking gear and goin' it alone. I like LitNet and am sad to see the site not doing so well. Good to see some of you keeping it alive.

    I didn't do a deep search for blog choices and it seemed to boil down to either Blogspot, WordPress, Fiction Press (an excellent Japanese story sharing site) and a few UK sites that are difficult to use with an American address. I think WordPress should work for me for the intended goal.

    Does anyone else on LitNet maintain a similar blog on a different site or perhaps you use WordPress too? Any suggestions or advice? Is it okay to advertise my WordPress blog here on LitNet so that your readers can get a look at my stories there?

    I'm sorry you've had such a frustrating experience--and just to post a story. What a waste on a site that's supposed to be about literature. Anyway, I don't have a blog and I don't know if you're allowed to advertise yours here (again, Logos is the person to check with). If not, may I ask you to email the address by private message? I would love to read your stories. Shame on LitNet.

    I hope you will still come here to post. I like your idea of having an ongoing story as a game. I would contribute to that. I'll post more about that on the thread where you suggested it. Maybe there's still hope for LitNet--or maybe not. I'm getting pretty sick of the technical problems too. :/

    It's probably a question of funding. Cloudflare likely offers a good price but obviously not guaranteed service. How much does it cost to keep a site like this running efficiently on a dependable server?

    Well, maybe it's me, but it seems like ads and crappy tech came in about the time the mods split. Draw your own conclusions. ;-)
