After some considerable messing around with Nick’s site, I think it’s about time I wrote something of substance here!
I have, for a long time, been itching to update the site for Nick. I wanted something far more dynamic. So, finally, I’ve slowly started to figure out the whole blog thing; not just using them but installing, configuring, customizing, managing the database back-end, etc…
I had already created two WordPress blog based sites:
- Exopolitics Florida — of which I am Co-Chairman
- Barack Obama UFO — in collaboration with Grant Cameron
Those two sites, rather obviously, use the same template. I’m not really good enough to go creating them from scratch at the moment
For Nick, however, I wanted something that better suited his work. He is, I think you’ll agree, the ‘Johnny Ramone of the Paranormal’
I have known Nick since about 1998. We originally met at the Staffordshire UFO Group (SUFOG). I used to travel up there with our mutual friend — and fellow fan of all things strange and conspiratorial –Tracie Austin-Peters. Now, I don’t take to anyone too quickly, but it stuck me instantly that our boy Redfern was and is ‘top bloke’! For anyone who hasn’t met Nick in person… you couldn’t hope to meet a more decent guy.
A couple of years passed and I had taken the rather brave decision — for me at least — to move ‘State Side’ and get married. Indeed, it came as a bit of shock to Tracie and, I suspect, probably to Nick also… they are both aware of my quiet demeanor.
Now, it came as a shock to me, somewhat later on, to find that not only Tracie had moved to the U.S. to get married, but Nick also. And I’d like to think I started a trend there, somehow
Tracie now has her TV talk show, Let’s Talk Paranormal. Nick, as you know, is a prolific author and, suffice it to say, busy beyond words with his work. I am still struggling to make a difference. I help where I can, where I am able. And so, knowing enough about web stuff to get me a less than average income, I try to ‘spread the UFO-logical word’. I have my own presentation, which probably won’t take off. And I’m an OK writer… who just hasn’t found a niche.
So, once again, welcome to Nick Redfern’s new-look site, buy his books (!!), follow his adventures, live vicariously if you wish, and if you happen to be one of Nick’s fellow bloggers and friends — you know who you are!! — then sign up, let me know that you want to post blog entries, and let’s get this show on the road!
