This is Joanne’s blog. It’s primarily here for her benefit, but you are welcome to engage in the conversation here. You should be aware of a few things before you do, though.

If you say anything Joanne finds particularly objectionable, or which is likely to have legal consequences, it may be removed. Her site, her rules.

Your posts may be delayed for moderation, particularly if you’re new or not logged in; please don’t take offence, blog spammers are vermin and should be hunted down and boiled alive we wish they would go away and not bother us. We’re sure you don’t want to see links to malware-infested pharmacy sites any more than we do.

By posting here, you grant Joanne a non-exclusive right to publish your words worldwide, electronically or otherwise. You should also assume that once something is on the Internet, it’s out there permanently. Joanne doesn’t intend to make a fortune selling your words; we’re merely pointing out the copyright situation and that this site is crawled by all the search engines you know and a few you probably don’t.

If you’ve posted something and want it removed, let us know; we might, or we might not (especially if we’re not convinced you posted it, or if you are otherwise trying to cause trouble).

Otherwise… have fun!

The theme is the excellent (and GPL‘d) Dialogue, with a custom banner – the feather banner is copyright Joanne Valiukas, but the actual WordPress theme is free for all to use and modify as they see fit has been temporarily set to the “2016” “2017” default WordPress theme, as the previously-used Dialogue theme has been abandoned and its language support appears to be a little flaky with recent versions of WordPress.
