Name Changes

With the combining of my website and blog into one site, it doesn't make much sense to call the blog "Further Into My Mind" as it has been up to this point.

The name was originally conceived to indicate that my blog would be a place to learn more about my hobby and I than you could by simply reading my website (titled: "The World In My Mind"). Obviously it wouldn't make much sense to continue calling the blog "Further Into My Mind" without the title of the website present to indicate the meaning of it.
The other issue is that a spiffy title may seem like a neat idea at first, but in the long run it will potentially cause problems with convenience. For example if I encounter a person on the street and begin telling them my life story, and they ask where they can read more to get me to shut up, telling them that they can read my blog titled "Further Into My Mind" causes several problems, a good example being the simple fact that "further" could get mixed up with "farther".
Also a titled blog doesn't make conventional sense unless there's a team of writers behind it, or I only plan on sharing it with family and friends. Neither of those is true of this blog.
Therefore I am going to change the name, and subsequently the web address this blog is located at, to my name. You can expect to see this change shortly after this post goes up.

Once again I regret to inform you that my surprise has been delayed, and definitely won't be out for the new year as I hoped it would be. However I have been able to find more time recently to work on my untitled novelette (yes, apparently at its current word length the correct term is "Novelette") and as usual it is coming along quite nicely, and I can't wait to share it with you guys and the world!

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Like all the changes, makes things a lot simpler and compact. May I recommend perhaps a theme overall? I think a different background image and maybe new link colors would be a nice final cosmetic touch. Making external changes to match the internal changes that have happened might be a good idea to complete this new change in direction.
