Here is an inventory of my (other)sites:
|name, link||when established||ssl ? (https)||e-commerce||submissions?||comments|
|doaskdotellnotes.com||2013/12||Y (2016/6/22)||soon (with inventory||N||Add many detailed notes supplementing my 3 “Do Ask, Do Tell” books; content tends to be quite focused on my own narrative and own incidents|
|billsmediareviews.com||2013/12||N||N||N||Now, mostly tracks my own media work; some special reviews of unusual relevance to books|
|billsnewscommentary.com||2016/5/4||N||N||Y (soon)||High-level commentary on major issues|
|billsmediacommentary.com||2016/5/4||N||N||Y (soon)||Reviews of movies, books, music and plays|
|doaskdotell.com||1999 (1997)||N||N||Y (email only)||Legacy site, has links to these sites and to 16 blogs on Google Blogger on index page|
Right now, it’s practical to provide https and SSL on only one of these sides (expected to be in place when shown). Explanations will be coming soon. Since the “doaskdotellnotes” site is most directly connected to my books, and to direct e-commerce (from my own inventory, as well as outsources), it’s the logical choise.
The two “commentary” blogs will continue the blogging stared on Blogger in 2006. Soon, I will be able to handle submissions and will give details onto those sites as to how that will work. I may or may not create new users, but I won’t be able to offer “https” for signon. The commentary blogs never contain personal information or credit card numbers or the like.
There are two other sites, one based on my nickname, “billbousha.com”, which I expect to discontinue in 2016-08 (and move the name to one of my Blogger blogs, “BillBoushka.me”) and “JohnwBoushka.com”, which houses my old IT career resume only.

Update: Aug. 10, 2016
Google Adsense has been added to all four WordPress blogs. It will show only one ad, on the home page without limitation. Users who do not apply “do not track” may see ads based on their browsing habits. Ads may apply on mobile devices.
For the time being, ads may not appear on regular computers on this footnote blog because https has gotten in the way of regular ad placement. I will have to work on a solution.
