ABOUT THE BLOG: An Update and a Few Thoughts

The Diversionist has become that most hoary and yet consistent of blog cliches: once the writer’s beloved home base and regular publication, only to devolve into a quiet hole where the only posts are the occasional apology for the ongoing silence. In the past three months I’ve posted a grand total of twice, a shameful record.

ABOUT THE BLOG: The Big Bad Thousand

It’s official: May 2012 was The Diversionist‘s best month ever, delivering over 1,000 hits!

That’s small fry compared to most established players, but it’s a result of steady, strong growth the blog’s shown all year. In all of 2011, the blog garnered under 1,000 hits.

My good friend Marius Masalar, who is a pretty brilliant composer, kindly offered to give this blog a makeover. And I’m really happy I said yes, because I love this new look he came up with.

I’m really happy about it. If you have any thoughts (or want to thank Marius as well!), leave your comments below and I’ll make sure he sees them. If you really want to thank him, or if your ears need a break from the tedium of life, check out his work above: Nereus is one of my favourite tracks on my iPod, after all!

Check out the sidebar for a complete list of my social media profiles, under the title My Diversions Elsewhere!

DIVERSIONIST: What Do You Think?

The blog’s been around for a few months now, and I’ve deeply enjoyed writing every post, whether a post on the details of writing or a silly music-based game. But my opinion isn’t the only important one here. The Diversionist is young enough that it’s still figuring out its identity. So, what do you think?
