I thinking of a revision to the To Move A Mountain series. After getting some feedback, both good and bad, I’m not sure if I should follow through or not. What do you think?

It looks like the website will be undergoing changes to accommodate a streamlined look and feel. This will reduce loading problems on mobile devices and make the site more manageable for me. The original intent was to try a few things and see how they worked out, keeping in mind that most of the site is temporary and would be changed in the future. While I’m not sure what will survive the first cut, I have a feeling the Media pages won’t make it. Not sure about the forum yet, but some pages will be combined and/or relocated at the very least. I think the biggest change may come in the membership and commenting areas. Most likely that functionality will be re-positioned back to the originating sources such as Amazon, Smashwords, Goodreads, etc… All in all, I think the new look will make a more efficient experience for everyone. Let me know what you think!
On the other side of writing, the new book is going slow. Ideas and writing aren’t the problem as much as the time it’s taking for everything that’s not writing but related to it, such as website maintenance. I’d like to apologize for not being on the Facebook page as much, but as all of you know, there are only so many hours in a day. In the meantime, I’m curious about something and would like your opinion. Do you think the Drey Cross series should continue? Personally I like it, but you, the reader has a say in it more so since you’re the one buying the books. I intentionally left the first book off with a good ending in the event the series discontinued. Anyway, let me know what you think.

The website is about 4-5 months old now and not really new at this point. But, if you haven’t seen it, then it won’t matter. Checkout the Media section and the videos in each book category. It’s interesting stuff.
Hello to All,
I’m finally close to having blog-to-facebook integration. A few tests should take care of it. When all is said and done, I can post here on the website and it will post on the FB page as well. When it works, technology is cool!

I hope the holidays went well for everyone. Whether or not the new year marks the end of something bad or the beginning of something good, I hope this year will return all your desires and reward your efforts.
For many, this is a time of planning and retrospect. For others, it’s just another day marked by a negligible event. However you may view the beginning of a new year, I think it’s most important to assess your situation and place in life, the universe, and your expectations. I tend to avoid popular and traditional beliefs of time related events, such as the new year. To me, the time year has little relevancy to the path I follow. As I move forward, I measure the passing of time only by memorable events, and even then, it’s only the event that has significance. Whatever your metric for measuring your connection to the environment may be, I hope it brings prosperity and happiness.
Until the next time, enjoy the reading.
