Cleanup & Migration

I migrated my old Blogger posts and comments to this site, so now there’s a quite a bit of things to read 🙂 I’m also going through and deleting over 10,000 fake subscribers – at least I know I’m popular with scammers! On the off chance I delete an actual subscriber, please feel free to […]
