Other Blog: Sweatpants Life

A while back I started a new blog called Sweatpants Life. Typically, it’s about, well life. I’ve been writing about words and SEO a lot lately. The most recent post was about portmanteaus and one that’s gone bad.

Check it out! Please.

New Era/Get This Show On The Road

In the last post, I announced that I was moving the blog to a new site. Well, that site is up and running as of right now. I wanted something easier to remember and a little easier to pronounce. I also thought that Zweihander Plus Eins made me sound like a tinfoil hate wearing upstart. I wanted something a little more friendly and comforting. A name that says, let’s gripe about politics and social issues until it becomes too overwhelming. Then let’s talk about something that happened back in the 80’s. It’s been decided that Sweatpants Life is that name. Head on over there now and please hit the subscribe button. If you’re already following or subscribed to Zweihander Plus Eins, you’re good to go. That is all going to carry over so don’t worry about it. For now, you will see almost all of the posts on Zweihander Plus Ein. There will be more coming soon.

In the meantime, give it a test drive, browse some lost treasures and see how it all shakes out. Although, I am fairly certain everything is working. If not, I can fix it. Why not? It’s the patch age. If you have issues – or you just want to talk – feel free to send me a mail at keepyourpantson@sweatpantslife.com

I will miss the small amount of random hits I receive each month from Germany.

Change Is Coming

Sorry to those who don’t like change, but it’s coming. You can’t stop progress, but – if conservative politicians are an example – you sure as hell can piss and moan and drag your feet the entire way. Pile all your players onto it’s back and make it drag all of them over the touchdown line. That is what it’s called right, the touchdown line? I haven’t paid attention to football in so long.

At this point, progress has shaken all the players off. It’s crossed the touchdown line, went over the grass, headed through the tunnel, into the parking lot, got in its Honda Civic, and is now driving off out of sight.

Progress is happening! Which means this little blog is moving and changing its name. Something a little shorter and easier to remember. At the moment I am uncertain if I will be giving wordpress.com $14 U.S. for a redirect. I’m kind of leaning towards no, because I know my enterprising readers can just update their RSS feeds or hit a subscribe email on the new site. If you follow through social media, you won’t have to worry about a thing.

Some may be wondering why I am doing this. Well, it’s as simple as saying that I don’t like the idea of walls. Whether that is Trump’s wall, the people down the street with the surname Wall, or the pay wall that wordpress.com puts features behind, I don’t like it. Why should I have to pay through the nose to edit templates that are available for free elsewhere? Not to mention all the plug-ins I can customize my site with. Not bagging, it’s just time for me to spread my wings and leave the nest.

Stayed tuned. It’s going to happen real quick.
