Where are you going?

For starters, I’m going nowhere. I will continue to be active here for some months. If I’m able, I’ll be here in some fashion until they turn the lights off. But I am exploring other homes, so it’s time to post links to them. #GooglePlusForwardingAddress

For starters, I do have a blog, but it’s mostly for me as a fiction writer, and I don’t post to it very often. I should probably increase that, but I don’t think it will ever be as active as my Google+ stream has been.

For my main stream, I’m looking at PlusPora and MeWe. Right now, MeWe is more mature and feature-rich, but they both need work to match what we’ve had here at Google+.

danthompson@pluspora is the standard way for Diaspora accounts to be referenced, but here is the messy Pluspora profile link as well: https://pluspora.com/people/63c6ab30ad6c01364692005056268def

My Sexy in the Stream collection will be moving to Tumblr but will continue for a while somewhat in parallel. Still, I will probably post a greater volume on Tumblr as well as posting pics that Google+ would not allow. As for the name, it’s Latin for “skin dream”.

I haven’t decided where my Beauty in the Stream and The Cute It Burns Us collections will be going. They may end up at wherever my main stream ends up. I might make Tumblrs for them. I have largely inactive Facebook account for an alternate pen-name, and they might end up there as content for that persona.


In closing, I would like to praise Google+ for what it was. While Facebook was the place to catch up with people you already knew, Google+ was the place to converse with the people you always wished you knew. And as we pass beyond the veil towards whatever waits for us after the Plus, I leave you with a few choice words from the end of another great shining moment: the SF show Babylon 5:

Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. There would never be another. It changed the future, and it changed us. It taught us that we have to create the future, or others will do it for us. It showed us that we have to care for one another, because if we don't, who will? And that true strength sometimes comes from the most unlikely places. Mostly, though, I think it gave us hope that there can always be new beginnings, even for people like us.

Kiah Morris, the first black woman to ever serve in Vermont’s state legislature, is speaking out about her decision to resign in late September after facing repeated harassment — including acts of intimidation at her home that forced her and her husband, who was recovering from heart surgery, to flee to a different town.
