The Escapist has a blog!

...and this is the first post!

I figure it's never too late to catch up with the 21st century. I would have done this a while ago, but certain tech limitations prevented it.

Big thanks go out to Jacob Ezzell for his help and patience, and Stormbringer (from the Citadel of Chaos (external link)) for suggesting a CMS and answering my myriad of questions about it.

The news and updates that I used to post to the main page will now be posted here, at (external link) This does mean that any of you who are following the updates on the LiveJournal feed will want to subscribe to the RSS feed for this one, as I will stop updating the LJ feed after a while.

Coming soon - on-site forums and wikis. (The current Escapist wikis will be moved here when they go live.)

Stay tuned!
