Plans for now, and the future

So Persona Paper is closing, which sucks. This is now the fifth or sixth site I’ve been on that’s gone belly-up. I could complain and shout, but at least we have a warning. My plan is to spend the next few days going through all my posts and copying the ones worth saving.

I still write on MyLot, and I’ve heard of some other sites, but I’m rather gunshy about trying another writing site. So for now, I’m sticking to MyLot and my blogs. For those of you interested, I’m going to continue my Wednesday Writing Prompts on my Oneoveralpha’s Writings blog. That was a blog I had that was just for writing stuff. I’m going to repost some stuff there, so over the next month or so you may see some familiar things. But as to just general posts, as well as my Movie Mondays (which I was going to start today) and my continuing rewatch of the James Bond movies, over the weekend I started my new Oneoveralpha’s Ramblings blog. I’ll be reposting my movie reviews there, and then getting around to all the reviews I’ve prewritten. And I’m even thinking of taking my Friday Polls to Twitter which has a poll feature.

Maybe someday we’ll all meet again on some new writing site.

This is the second post I saw today about personapaper closing. I always write my geocaching adventures and fun days out with my kids on here as well as my reviews. Every time I find a site I enjoy writing on it shuts down. It is such a bummer. I have written a ton of articles on here and have never earned over $3. I wonder if they will pay me that little amount that I have accumulated.

I joined Bitlanders yesterday, and so far I'm liking it! :D Not so fond of the "30" people in the Global chat, though.

I've tried joining MyLot multiples times, but every time I try I get an error.. -_- Did that happen to anyone else?

Glad to see you're also on blogspot. So am I, until I manage to corrall all my original writing onto the one site, at least. Content writing for others has been another strand that I've been pursuing with some interest since the big B closed, and that looks like it will be an ongoing part of my writing life for a while too.

I will spend any extra time I have (!) writing on my own sites and stay on here while it is up.
