TSM Davies is Moving

My website is moving. My blog has been on WordPress for more than 5 years now, but the time has come to make a change. What does this mean for my followers?

My new site is easy to find: tsmdavies.com! I wanted to own my own domain, instead of a free WordPress hosted one. While I could purchase the domain through WordPress, buying it through another site was cheaper, and I was able to purchase a number of years at a time.

I also wanted to have special features that required HTML coding that WordPress wouldn’t allow me to use without paying for site upgrades. The new host makes it quicker (and much easier) to add the code.

A newsletter! I am starting an email newsletter to help my audience grow, and help my readers stay connected with me easier. Sadly, WordPress would not allow this without learning how to use PHP. I tried. I failed. My new host makes it quick and easy.

I apologize for the inconvenience to my WordPress followers. If you subscribe to my newsletter on the new site, you will receive updates and links to my new blog posts directly to your inbox. Everyone that subscribes will receive an exclusive story as well.

Now, let me start off by saying that I believe readers should have the right to have a say in what the standard price for eBooks is. I don’t believe that eBook prices should be equally as high as the printed copies. This is Amazon’s argument. Continue reading
