Hello hello hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers and lovers of erotic flash fiction from all over the world! The fur is really flying at this end as the Old Soldier rebuilds his beloved magazine.
I unplugged one plug-in that was telling everyone the site was shut down. It was still dealing with the old .com instead of the new .net. Well, when I reactivated the plug-in in was dealing with the new .net. Unfortunately, my stats are also starting all over again. (These beans are good.)
But that’s no problem. I just have to do my daily one or two columns and when new visitors see what’s on this site I know the pageviews will once again begin their slow but inevitable upward trend.
So, there’s plenty of work for the Old Soldier to do, but I love work if it’s for something I believe in.
It’s a sunny, cold day in Pittsburgh. The high 23, but the Old Soldier doesn’t have to go outside. I have on my classical music on the radio and there’s plenty of work for me to do on the site. In a couple of days I’ll reward myself with a beer run to Armand’s on Liberty Avenue in Little Italy. The Old Soldier is fighting the good fight against great odds, but I have plenty of allies and the tide is slowly turning in the favor of men and women who enjoy art, creative writing, culture and explicit sex all in the pages of the same magazine.

“My advice to writers of erotica is to first make sure to have a good story to tell with believable characters; the sex should be organic to the story.” Guy Hogan
