To my new blog, Bit Of Ivory. Jane Austen once referred to her own work as a “little bit of ivory, two inches wide, on which I work with a brush so fine as to produce little effect after much labour.” That’s what this blog is– my own little bit of ivory.

It’s not much at this point. The template is just the default Moveable Type template, with my own links added in. But that will change. I’ll work on it in the coming weeks. I hope to import all my old entires from Virtual Parchment, for one thing, so it will have a bit more history. But that will have to wait until I have time.

I’m really excited about all this. I can now upload files (such as my fanfic, Look to Your Dreams, and pictures, etc., without having to host them elsewhere. All the comments are internal, so I don’t have to worry about YACCS going down. If you want, I can even add your e-mail to a list that will notify you whenever the site gets updated. There’s no limit to what I can do!

I especially like the absence of banner ads. :)

I’m sure I’ll be updating this blog just as much as my old one, so check back often, and leave lots of comments!

    Darn should have lnown he’d be the first. Welcome home. Hope the move goes smoothly.
    Oh…and get some color! It looks like my back yard around here. SNOW!

    Cool, though I agree color is needed. Also am I the only one who has a side scroll at the bottom?
    I’ll have to update my link today.

    I like it! Some color would be nice though :)

    Yes, Austen. I said it wasn’t Harry Potter related. I never said it wasn’t fandom related. And I’ve been severly neglecting my other fandom as of late.

    I know on the color thing, I’m working on it. This new template is a lot more complicated than my old one.

    I’ve got a scroll bar at the bottom, too. I didn’t get one in Mozilla at home, but now I’m on IE at work, and I’ve got one. I’ll have to figure out how to get rid of that.

    If you need help with the template stuff, just yell. I have about a week left.
