A Singularity is Two Years Old!

by on Oct.10, 2012, under Announcements, Articles, Identify Yourself, Website Update

Welcome to A Singularity, a single point which collects anything that is unique, odd, or just plain interesting.

A Singularity is now officially two years old and honestly, it feels far longer and shorter at the same time. I remember getting this place up and going and that seems so long ago. And yet when I think about all the things I’ve done for the site, all the changes it has gone through, they seem to run together like they just happened yesterday. A Singularity been something of a surprising success for me. While it has achieved (and not achieved  several unexpected things, and the quality and rate of content has varied significantly over time, I’m still astounded and proud to have kept a website running for two solid years with regular original and shared content.

As for the future, time will tell. Experiments with other social media have proven to me that this site is still my favorite in terms of sharing my own original content, so there is no worry there. What kind of content this site delivers will, of course, always be subject to change. For now Weird Words, Free Write, and the occasional Writing Time, Comic Links, and Comic suggestions will continue to come out as much as possible, along with the odd article or shared video or item as time allows. A makeover is wanted and may eventually be implemented one of these days so look forward to that. Better integration with social media sites like Twitter and Tumblr may happen but as always, I will make direct reading and RSS/Atom feeds my primary concern for distribution. I have some other ideas cooking in my head but, of course, there is only so much time in the day, and so much writing, working, and gaming to get done. Maybe one of these days I’ll be able to free myself of one of these vices!

Until then I want to thank you so much for reading my site. I, of course, welcome all comments and commentary (that isn’t spam) on anything I post, including suggestions for improving the site in some way shape or form.

One Year Anniversary: Welcome to the Singularity

by on Oct.10, 2011, under Announcements, Identify Yourself, Website Update

Welcome! Welcome to The Singularity, a blog that collects things of interest I find from around the internet and the world, and offers them up to you. Today is not too special of a day, save for it being a Monday, but it is the one year anniversary of The Singularity being up and running.

And according to my stats, I think you guys like it. Sure The Singularity is no massive aggregator site, or even all that topical of a blog, and if I tried to monetize the site I’d be broke in under a week but I still feel happy to see a handful of people bouncing off the site every day and occasionally leaving comments. I’m happy to bring all this content to you and feel I’m providing some kind of a service, even if it is something akin to a mediocre Tumblr feed on most occasions.

Speaking of Tumblr feeds, the site has evolved a bit from what I thought it would be and I do hope it’ll evolve again in the coming year. In prior announcements I’ve talked about updating themes to be more readable and accessible for the type of content I seem to be regularly posting and I haven’t forgotten about that. For those of you reading to catch my writing updates, I’ll be updating about that soon. NaNoWriMo is just around the corner, after all. I’ll hopefully be writing more insightful articles and making the site a bit more friendly in terms of viewing a particular type of content. If you have any suggestions, feel free to pass them along.

So there you have it. One year Anniversary. Okay now you can go look at the other link in the other post. It’s a sweet and uplifting one, which I think is appropriate for today.

Hi. My name is Nojh and welcome to The Singularity.

By day I am software developer, writer, aspiring author, and game designer. By night, I usually sleep. I have many interests and hobbies such as comics, video games, board games, books, movies, science, technology, philosophy, and many other things most people would consider geeky.

The Singularity

As I’ve stated on the about page, this blog is dedicated to collecting various things I find interesting on the web for your viewing pleasure. Hence the name, The Singularity, a place where things collect into one.

It is also a place for me to voice my opinions, reviews, and write articles about various topics from time to time. Comments are open to all and I want to encourage discussion. So please, tell me what you think. I know I haven’t been doing this nearly as much lately but stay tuned, I’ll get to it.

Other Stuff

Besides this blog I have a few other projects. I am attempting to write a novel, tentatively titled Everlasting. It is a zombie steampunk sci-fi fantasy adventure and I am chronicling its initial draft here.  I also organize a private writing group called Anomalous Writing that meets physically twice a week. You can follow the posts via the Everlasting tag or my thoughts or links about writing in general via the writing category.

Speaking of writing, I also write a regular article series called Science Future for Escape Pod. EscapePod is a podcast that buys and narrates short story science fiction for everybody’s listening pleasure. Science Future is written for their blog and is dedicated to discussing the scientific breakthroughs and their impact upon science fiction as well as the impact science fiction has had upon science. For more information about Science Future you can find the introduction article here. If you would like to follow Science Future you can do so by EscapePod’s Science Future tag, or The Singularity’s Science Future tag.

I am also one of the designers of the roleplaying game Vanished Lands produced by Ruminant Productions. Vanished Lands is a post-apocalyptic fantasy western RPG and is available purchase via Lulu.com. The supplement book, Vanished Lands: Storyteller Archive Vol. 1, is available at Amazon and other online retailers. Right now I am working with the other designers to release a rules system for future Vanished Lands releases.

Thank You

I want to thank you all for reading and giving me a reason to keep this blog running. Readership is actually something I am interested in keeping. I’ve been running this blog actively for nearly half a year now and the numbers, near as I can tell, are growing. So thank you for spending some of your time reading this blog and I hope you enjoy it. The only thing I ask of you is, from time to time, let me know what about the blog you do and do not like via commentary either here, or one of the sites that this blog repeats on.

Hi. My name is Nojh and welcome to The Singularity.

I have made a concerted effort these days to improve the content and presentation of this blog and I think I have gotten it to a point that I am satisfied with. My plans for opening up The Library have stalled at the moment however due to lack of time and commitment. I do still plan on adding the missing contact page  so people can more regularly contact me directly, rather than leaving commentary on a blog. I am still somewhat dissatisfied with the layout and theme of this blog and will be making attempts to improve the readability of it. I’d welcome both advice and offers to help.

I’ve been running this blog actively for fourth months now and the numbers, near as I can tell, are growing. So thank you for spending some of your time reading this blog and I hope you enjoy it. The only thing I ask of you is, from time to time, let me know what about the blog you do and do not like via commentary either here, or one of the sites that this blog repeats on.
