Moved we’ve moved

I’ve wanted my own domain since was I was eighteen and I read feminist blogs and didn’t shave my legs ’cause I thought it was a cool feminist thing to do. (Now I just don’t because I’m lazy and busy).

And it just never happened until this week. I’ve transferred everything from this blog to the new website.

I am not in love with the theme. But I have to stop playing with it right now and do some writing. I loved the theme I had before this one, it was so pretty. But the comments were broken.

I am having trouble finding one I like, with a customizable header and custom colors and three column.

My big problem is I want SHINY things I’ve seen on other websites. I want my books featured on a side column. I want a custom blog. I want a custom site.

I want champagne. My budget is more box wine.

Or more get a hot guy to buy you a  drink and then walk away with it. Does anyone know a hot guy programmer who will set me up a blog for the joy of it?

Me neither. There’s part of me that wishes that I had gone in for computer science. really shoulda done that instead of English Major. There are no jobs with English Major as a pre-requisite. I never did finish it either. I dropped out after I failed English 110 my first year.

So I guess you are probably wondering where this new site is.


yes asraidevin DOT com. is my website. simple, easy, to the point.

Maybe in a bit I’ll hire someone to set up a website/blog. Or I’ll find a theme I really love. I do love my header or a couple snuggling on a picnic blanket. Anyway, I’ll probably post here when I put up a new blog over there, with a link. Once the new site starts getting my search engine traction I’ll phase this site out. Or not. maybe I’ll just transform this into my non writer blog where I write about … well never mind that’s another point.

I am trying to figure out a new posting schedule and new topics to bring. My number one goal is to show case some other authors, have guests posts and the like, to gain more visibility and keep myself motivated. Have to post when you promised someone else. I’d be a hermit if I could or just talk about myself. No one wants that.

He’ll make a man out of her, and then turn her back into a woman

Mulan is my favorite Disney heroine. She is a doer. She grabs her father’s armour and pretends to be a man to protect him. She kicks everyone’s ass in training camp. She saves everyone on the mountain and then when they find out, she is kicked out. But instead of licking her wounds, she follows everyone to tell them the bad guys are coming. And no one believes her. So she kicks the bad’s guys ass.

And then the hero chases her down and says “uh hey, I was an idiot. I’m really sorry, can I spend the rest of my life making it up to you?”

At least, that’s what I assume he says. Because if he doesn’t grovel at Mulan’s feet, she should have kicked his ass out of her garden. Forget being a good girl, she is a GREAT girl. Breaking every unfair rule there is. Feminism at it’s best.

Do you love a heroine who kicks ass, takes numbers and still gets the guy? Or do you prefer a heroine who is a little more sedate? More like Cinderella who still tries her best but in the end needs rescuing. I don’t mind the occasional passive girl to a strong hero.
