what has become of the O.div

This seems to be a regular theme with the Odiv blog. Moving homes, disappearing, reappearing. I guess my newb electional astro skills are biting me in the ass.

Well, I've wrangled the domain odivinorum.com back, but haven't had time to find another place to house the blog. I am strongly considering a url redirect to a wordpress blog where I won't have to worry about security and payment and whatnot. But that would mean all the archives would be lost. I'm okay with that. I could repost some reader faves, perhaps. I would like to have the Feral Tarot hosted somewhere again at the least. But I suspect that the site has lapsed for so long that it is effectively dead to all.

I'm also considering buying another domain, starting from scratch. The O.div was a project that was supposed to honour the Greek god, Dionysos. Over the years, that purpose has become more contrived, performative. The ideals that seemed so within reach began to slip away from me until now, I don't know if I'd even recognize that which was once the lifeblood of my psyche. I have come to see that everything I did for god in the past was very childish and in a way, rather perverse, although it was undeniably real. The question is figuring out what to do now.

pretty bad news

My host is officially out of business and didn't inform me. I've pretty much lost everything since the last backup. So! I'm going to see what I can salvage and probably move my blog to wordpress.com (if possible) and see what can't be done about the domain name. I won't upload the old articles, or the Feral Tarot unless I can secure free hosting. I'll post again here when everything's been sorted out, so please subscribe to the rss feed if you would like an update.

Anyways, I have been posting to the Odiv blog since 2004 when it all started on lj. Almost 4 years later, it's come back full circle to lj again. I'd like to thank everyone who read and commented to my blog and supported my site. You have my most sincere gratitude.
