A New Beginning

For the past couple of years or so, I used this blog as a place to park my short stories. Originally, my idea was to set up a website through which I would offer my short fiction to readers at a modest price, while engaging in network marketing.

Building a website proved a bit beyond my technical expertise and was too time consuming. Eventually, I gave up on that project and decided to feature my stories here at Blogspot. Still, some six to eight months after adding Google Ad Sense to my blog, I had earned a whopping 25 cents.

It was obvious that traffic to my blog was virtually non existent and my works of art, my short stories, were not being viewed. Ultimately, I would like to either get my fiction published online or offline. All things considered, keeping the stories up here just seemed...well...counter productive, so I removed them and decided to create a new format for my blog. From now on it will be just that; a blog.

I want to cover all things Gothic; but beyond that, I have not decided just what direction I want to take here. Some entries may be of a more personal nature while others may discuss groups, bands, art and music, people or the sub culture in general. I only hope that the entries here will garner a readership and serve as a focal point and resource for the Gothic community. So then, I'd like to welcome you all to the new Gothic Embrace.
