Today I updated the page, Danko On The Web. It appears on all of my blog sites and now the page is identical on each site.
It includes the following statement about this site, the one you are on right now, “If you are interested in more than one of my blogs, this would be a good place to hit the Follow button as I post links to all my latest articles on all of my blogs here.”
Yes, you can click on the navigation bar above to read what follows but to bring attention to the update I have reprinted the page below.
I have four blogs on virtual worlds (a fifth is coming soon!). Here is your tour guide of my little publishing empire with links to my social networks at the bottom.
Journey To The Center Of The Metaverse
“One avatar’s battle with the reality of the virtual landscape.” This is my most popular blog in terms of most readers, views, hits, however you wish to measure it. Here I write analysis, commentary/opinion on the virtual issues of the day, often with my own experiences as an example. Occasionally I “break” a story though that is not my mission here. There are also features on people, places, things I bump into around the Metaverse that I think readers might find interesting.
Steaming Along: Danko Whitfield In The 19th Century
“The wanderings of a Steampunk Explorer.” This is my longest-running virtual world blog, started in May of 2010. It is my RP blog and follows my avatar’s story as a writer, explorer, diplomat, musician, pub owner and semi-retired time traveller. Because of the time travel aspect, not all of the stories take place in the 19th century. (Please note, the URL for this blog changed in late May 2013.)
“A virtual explorer’s personal notebook.” This is the “blog behind the blogs.” It gives some details of my virtual travels so that others can use the information to make their own trip or simply live vicariously. Often you will see that what I refer to here ends up as an RP story on Steaming Along or an article or commentary on Journey To The Center Of The Metaverse. Also, sidebars or backgrounders to pieces on the other blogs will turn up here.
“Writer, Explorer of Virtual Worlds.” I guess this is my homepage. I refer to it sometimes as “Danko Central.” It used to be the address that housed Steaming Along when I had just the one blog, before I diversified. If you are interested in more than one of my blogs, this would be a good place to hit the Follow button as I post links to all my latest articles on all of my blogs here. I do put some original material here as well. Usually it’s stuff that I don’t think “fits” anywhere else. 🙂 In addition to Steaming Along, I also do some RP writing that is posted on The Devokan Trust and Kitely forums. I put links to those pieces here as well. This site is still under re-construction so it will probably evolve as time goes on.
Yeah, there’s going to be a fifth blog on virtual worlds. Stay tuned.
