Rain, rain, rain

It always seems to rain at inconvenient times. The day we had the movers moving all of our stuff into the house -- rain. Today, when I'm supposed to be moving stuff from the apartment to the house -- rain. And cold rain at that. What happened to that nice weather we were having?

I've got almost everything packed up at this point at least. And a lot of it in plastic garbage bags (high-class moving for me, oh yeah), so I guess I could move that. I just have to get motivated...

I posted in my YA Books Central Blog today and hopefully I didn't come across rude...if you've read it, leave me a comment and let me know if I did. I'm just getting a little tired of people demanding that I publish them or write a paper for them get the idea. I think some people have the idea that, if you have a web site and it looks halfway decent, you must have untold resources. Hahahahaha. Well, it's really a money-losing proposition and I do it because a) I love YA lit, b) I love to get people reading, and c) it keeps me in touch with people in the YA community. I re-coup about 2 months of hosting expenses every year through Amazon sales and the few ads I allow on the site. I've been thinking about getting rid of some of the ads completely, since it almost isn't worth the hassle. And they're always sneaking in some horrible flashy ad that jumps out at you. I hate that.

Hmmm, I guess I'm getting all whiny again. Must stop that.

I am really excited about moving into the house. The big debate right now is where to put the computer and the TV. These old houses really weren't set up for modern electronics.

You maybe already have too much traffic on your site for this to work, but have you looked at the web hosting packages at It's very inexpensive, but I'm guessing you use too much bandwidth already. Just a thought.

And, as I said on your other blog...what crazies!

Yep, it's the traffic and the database usage that kills me -- that and the site is written in ColdFusion (since it's the programming language I know), and those hosting plans tend to cost more. But I don't really mean to complain. I love doing the site. It's well worth the expense, especially when I get a kid that writes me about some book they love.
