Weekly digest of posts January 14th to January 19, 2018

Ick, Raymond and I have both been down with something awful this week – not quite the flu as that feels like you’re going to die, not quite a cold as that usually comes with sinus and coughing related things, but we both feel so lousy and achy – so it’s been nice seeing your comments and thoughts over on the new blog while we are comforted by a small dog who wants to steal all the blankets and/or food.

Another great week for discussions over on the new blog, so I hope you join us over there to share your thoughts!

Patreon means this is a Patreon exclusive post, and you have to be a Patreon subscriber to access it.

Patreon Q&A means this is a question someone posed on Patreon and I’m answering it. You have to be a Patreon subscriber to access it.

If it doesn’t say Patreon on it after January 1st, it means it’s open to everyone.

Administrative stuff means stuff about the blog, like how things work or will work.

Discussion is an open thread where I hope to see your comments, thoughts, or questions, although you’re welcome to share on any post over there.

Next week is going to be a bit crazy for posts as I have a multi-post duplication to share, the e-zine for the end of the week, and answers to a ton of questions you’ve posed to make up for this week of being off sick!
