The time has come for a parting of the content.
I mentioned this in the Facebook group the other day, so this may be a repeat for some of you. When I had my first publication back in March, I decided the time had come to make a presence for myself as a writer (vs the lurker I’ve always been). In a fit of excitement, I bought a new domain, cummingswrites.com, and then did…nothing.
I have decided it’s time for a change, and this wasn’t an easy decision. Datanode.net has been my sole blog for a long, long time. The last few years, though, it has begun to become mostly a place where I post about writing, to the exclusion of regular posts. I have decided to fix that disparity.
I am in the process of setting up cummingswrites.com to point to a new site I’ve setup over at Medium.com. I expect it will be at least a few more days before that url resolves to Medium (for now, it will just bring you back to datanode). Moving forward, Medium/cummingswrites is where you will find all of my posts on writing, writing news, etc.. Datanode will become more of a personal blog again, with shout outs to things posted on Medium (because sometimes, news will transcend being relevant to only one site). The verdict is still out on whether it is worth the effort to import my old posts for new readers, or just treat it as a clean slate.
So with that in mind – my first (ever) post on Medium just went up, “There’s a flaw in my characters, I just need to find it”
