Those of you familiar with GRACE@ARMS know that our website has always been and our blog (well, our singer, Bastion’s blog) has always been

So what is this “.wordpress” stuff?

There are great bands, funny videos, interesting articles, and valuable information everywhere.  In fact, there’s so much of all of these things, that the vast majority of them (even many of the most fascinating ones) get lost in the barrage.  This means that visibility is extremely important these days.

No matter what you do, what interests you, or what you’re selling, there are millions of people who want it or want to be a part of it.  Where are all those millions?  Everywhere!  Well, everywhere that they know to be.

That’s why we’re opening a second (and maybe third) blog. is awesome and we’re going to keep using it, but it’s generally trafficked by people who already know about GRACE@ARMS.  We can let people know about it through our Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc., but that’s all the exposure we get.

By creating a blog here on WordPress, though, we’re opening a new avenue to GRACE@ARMS–a new way for potential fans to find us.  We’ll still maintain but we’re going to start mirroring our blogs here as well.

The plan:

We’re going to start by copying several of our more popular blog entries over to this server to see how it goes.  We’ll also be copying our new From the Band Friday blogs and other Grace@Arms news and announcement blogs here as we continue to update them.

[If this is a success, I may move my blog and/or my Scotch whisky tasting notes over here as well.  In the mean time, the majority of my posts will remain at  Keep rocking!  – Bastion]
