A recent opportunity availed itself to me to move my blogging to another platform.
It’s a bitter sweet time for me. MichaelAlanHansen.wordpress.com started over two full years ago. I posted sparingly over the first year but over the last 10 months I have committed myself to publishing anywhere from three to five posts a week. Overall I have published over 200 blog posts, accrued over 100 WordPress followers, & had over 7,000 views on the blog.
Committing myself to writing regularly since January has been an awarding experience. It hasn’t always been easy or inspired and I’m sure it hasn’t always been easy to read or inspiring. However, it’s meant a lot to me that there are some people out there who have been willing to click over to MichaelAlanHansen.WordPress.com and see what I have to say.
That being said, the fact that I’m moving does not mean that it will be any more difficult for you to read what I write. I will still be writing regularly and posting my writing updates to social media.
Having said all this let me give you a little more information about where my blog is heading. A friend of mine hosts a website named Torrey Gazette. Torrey Gazette is a site that hosts a few personal blogs and publishes multiple book reviews monthly. The owner of Torrey Gazette (Joshua Torrey) has invited me to bring my regular blogging over to TorreyGazette.com. I will still be posting around four times a week (Monday – Thursday) so you shouldn’t expect much to change in terms of production and content at the new site.
One major change will be the name of the blog. Whereas this blog was named “Brief Inquisition?” for a time and simply “Michael Alan Hansen” for the past several months, the name of my blog over at Torrey Gazette will be “St. Anne’s Manor.”
That name comes from the final installment of C.S. Lewis’ fictional space trilogy That Hideous Strength. Be sure to head over to Torrey Gazette tomorrow to catch my first post explaining more about St. Anne’s Manor.
It’s been fun and I’m looking forward to your continued readership!
