Karavansara

East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

Small adjustments

Monday has come around again
I’m in the same old place, the same old faces always watching me
Who knows how long I’ll have to stay?
Could be a hundred years of sweat and tears at the rate that I get paid
[Supertramp, From Now On]

Ah, January 2014 is almost gone, and here I am again, trying to do too many things at the same time.

Karavansara’s been lingering in a twilight realm thes last few months – more of a PR media outlet about my writing than a true blog.
The first year of Karavansara has been good, but not exceptional – mostly because I think I was not often personally engaged with my posts.
Through the year I told you what I’m reading, what I’m writing, I shared lots of weird snippets of info and links and stuff, but I was always pretty distant.
Must be the language, too.
But I’d like to see this blog psosper, so it’s time to ring some changes.

Nothing momentous, mind you.
I’ll keep talming about myself, my stuff, my interests – and then about fantasy, adventure, the pulps.
I’ll just try and be a little more… let’s say engaged.
More personal.

I’ll talk about everything I like.
And everything I hate.
You’ve been warned.

This might also mean there will be more posts throughout the week than normally scheduled.
Let’s se how it goes – then maybe I’ll redo the blackboard here on the right.

Guess I’ll always have to be, living in a fantasy
Though it won’t be really me, from now on
You think I’m crazy, I can see
It’s you for you and me for me
Living in a fantasy from now on
[ibid.]
