Now I've gone and done it. I've set up a guest account here on Soldier Ant for one Robert Duffy, host and proprietor of Donewaiting.com (a gestatory music criticism and community site.) Hopefully Robert will be weighing in on a fairly regular basis and adding his unique voice to the goings-on here.
Why did I do this?
First and foremost, Duffy's a friend and he expressed some interest. He wants a place to post about non-music related topics and I want a wider variety of subject matter on this site. Lately it's starting to look like the Old Testament threw up in here.
But, just as importantly, I like Robert's writing. Plain and simple. He's short, direct and to the point (and his writing is, too.) It should be a nice counterpoint to my lumbering, laden missives.
I've got some other stuff planned, too -- but since this is an extremely part time endeavor for me, they'll probably trickle in over the next several months: an actual design; maybe some other guest authors (want to be considered? Leave a comment); hooking up some of the more choice Movable Type features, like Search f'r'instance... Anyway.
Welcome, Robert! Bring on the vomit.
