Hello, long time no post. Sorry if I kept anyone waiting on more content and for temporarily abandoning my site. I’ve been working on a lot of projects involving my professional writing and my creative writing so unfortunately PhAze 2 was placed on the back-burner. I have a fiction novel in the works (roughly 300 pages at the moment), a collection of free-verse that should hopefully be published at the end of this year or early next year and some short story ideas in my head. At the same time, I’ve been considering which direction I should take this site in for the future. I’ve been meaning to update my followers on my plans for this site–better late than never, I guess.
Originally, PhAze 2 was a practice blog meant for gaining experience in managing a site as well as writing engaging content. However, now it seems like this blog would better serve as a platform for my writing. I already have links to outside articles included on this site as well as my own original content. I still plan on linking to any outside article I write and I plan on updating this blog with its own content. At the same time, I also want to use this site to gather an audience for my creative writing endeavors by linking to where they can be purchased online and sharing teasers before anything is officially released. Given the nature of self-publishing, I need all the exposure I can get.
The site will likely undergo a re-branding soon though the changes will be minimal. The layout will change, some of the content will change and the name will likely change, too. I still have to figure out how I’m going to separate my typical content from this new content I have in store, whether or not I should try to separate the content and whether or not I should even take the blog in this direction rather than creating a new site for publishing my creative works. So I still have plenty to think about before making any changes. I just wanted to let everyone know what was going on and what to potentially expect in the coming months. Possibly more focus on rhetoric and less focus on journalism. Not sure yet but didn’t want to keep you all hanging for too long.
Thank you for your patience and your continued support! I’m looking forward to what is in store for the fate of this site and I hope you all stay with me for the ride.
