Me and Gimp are trying to get along. I finally have my land mass and waterways figured out, I think. I need to add mountains on the east side of the northern half of the continent. I’ll attach a picture below.

Just a quick check…
My blog traffic on the last few posts is zero. I know that there a few email subscribers, and the stats there are a bit more promising in that they show 3 people accessing my latest post.
With an eye toward optimizing my time usage, Id like to ask a favor of anyone reading these posts. could you either pop by the blog and leave a comment, or shoot an email to me (author-at-jandrewjansen.com) just to confirm that there is someone looking at these?
If so, I will continue. If not, I will put my energy elsewhere.

As part of the idea of redesigning my blog, it is time I give it a proper name. Any ideas? I’m considering The Illyeamar Forest (as a reference to my book) but wonder if that is too specific.
Would love some suggestions, but I will need to run anything I like through google to make sure it isn’t taken already.
I’m considering trying to do some podcasts. Maybe a weekly thing, not sure. My concern is not having enough material to make it work.
I am therefore taking suggestions for podcast topics that anyone might be interested in hearing.
