Testing 1, 2, 3…

After struggling with an update to the newsletter app that Practical Fox has been using for years, we are giving up. Throwing in the towel. Kicking it to the curb. Life is too short. Et cetera.

But we don’t want to stop sharing news with you all, at least occasionally. Like, did you know that there’s a new expanded edition of the Beat the Boss tabletop RPG by union organizer and DM for life Doug Geisler? And that it’s coming on out Tuesday, October 17? And that you can preorder it only on the Practical Fox website?

Beat the Boss Revised Edition: A Roleplaying Game for Organizing on the Job

There’s other news too! Kristen Hall-Geisler has a new translation of Celeste Mogador’s memoirs from 1858, with the first volume coming in January 2024. There will be more news on that as the publication date nears, but we figured you should know now.

Finally, why is this a test? First, because Practical Fox hasn’t ever had a blog before. Now seems as good a time as any to start. (When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. When is the second best time? Now.) Second, thanks to that newsletter app making very basic things very difficult, we needed a new way to newsletter. It just so happened that WordPress, the bones behind this website, released an integration plugin for the Fediverse this week. That means not only can we send these posts to your email inbox, which is very handy, but people who use Mastodon, Friendica, Firefish, and all the rest can follow this blog too. Very, very handy.

So let’s hit Publish and see where all this post shows up. Look for more from us soon!
