So if I used Wordpress, I'd have to come up with a different URL. I've always been "bratfarrar" (except my very first Xanga account, back when we were still stuck with dial-up, but that doesn't count), so I haven't the foggiest what I'd use as an alternative. "gentle-edgar" won't do, because they don't allow hyphens or underscores, and "gentleedgar" just looks weird. Hm. Suggestions would be much appreciated.
If I can't come up with a substitute to use for Wordpress, I could always make the switch to Dreamwidth. I have the user name already, so that's good. But part of what I love about Wordpress is that you can have multiple static pages and layers of static pages, as well as (depending on the theme) the categories (which function like tags do here) showing up in a submenu at the top, instead of being relegated to the sidebar. And it would be much easier to add banners and illustrations and such to stories, which I've been itching to try my hand at for ages.
Oh, and just to make things more complicated, I do have an Archive Of Our Own (AO3) account, although I'm not particularly enamored of their layout and content management either. I suppose I could (should?) switch to them, at least as a back up of the backup, but I'd really rather not. I've been contemplating yanking my stuff anyway, although the (empty) promise of permanency is tempting.
If Wordpress, what should I use for the url?
And yes, "Batman sez" is a total cheat, I know. Next poll will have a good Batman option. I promise.
