Corduroy pillows are making headlines: bad jokes and links. Together at last.


This is going to be my final post over here at dumb old Glitter and Doom. I've got a shiny new wordpress site that's guaranteed to ... be pretty much the same. It's got a bit of a different look but I've imported everything from this blog AND the old blog Four Eyes Rella too. Very fancy. So be sure to check out the archives. You know, if you're into that kind of thing.

I'm very busy trying to understand how Disqus works with wordpress, tagging things appropriately and trying to resize photos. Although I may just give up on the photos, it's like 1500 blog posts. So. Yeah I've been doing this a while.  The point is, it's kind of bare bones right now but I can't wait much longer to start posting new stuff over there, so let's just get this show on the road.

Here's this thing, click it if you'd like to follow A Blog About A Nova with bloglovin'.

 And here's a plain old link to my new blog for if you don't like bloglovin'. 


I really like each and every one of you and hope to see you over there. But if not, no hard feelings! I unfollow people all the time, especially when there's such an easy opportunity to just not re-up. So bla bla bla maybe I'll see you later.
