    I really like your site design and especially cover design Tempest, works really well. Did you draw it yourself?

    I find WordPress pretty easy to use, but there are only a limited number of styles to pick from. I found one I was happy with, and stuck with it - introducing a bit of personalisation with a fancy, but hopefully not too intrusive background. I'm a sucker for design, so I wish I could play with everything.

    All the stat reporting/control you get in general is very good with Wordpress. As a reader, I much prefer WordPress to Blogger or actual sites (unless very simple) because I know where everything is and where to look.

    There are so many Wordpress themes to choose from it can be bewildering. At the moment I have a different one for each of my websites - with Bushwick my current choice for my new web serial http://www.journaloftheliving.wordpress.com. It has black text on a white background, which is easy to read, though not as nice to look at as some other themes. It does have navigation down the side, though.

    I wish I had drawn it myself but my abilities in that area are horrific. Jason Chan is the artist, that dude can draw. http://www.jasonchanart.com/

    He is totally my guy if I come into money and want some art.

    I'm in the middle of converting my site from WordPress to Jekyll (http://jekyllrb.com). If your friend is a programmer, it might be an option for you. WordPress is fine, but is unfortunately growing ever more (needlessly) complex. You can host your Jekyll site for free on github.com, if you want (though, I'm not sure how compatible their terms of service are with anything even a little racy).

    I might open source my Jekyll theme when it is finished. Haven't decided yet. Anyway, there are lots of options.

    Thank you everyone for your helpful responses! I started building a WordPress site but I've been slowed down by my book going free on Amazon (it's in the top 20 post-apocalyptic sci fi books!)so I'll get back to the site when I have time.
