What are you prepared to do?

Waitaminute! Isn’t this post three days late? What happened to Friday? I’m lazy? Well, also, I want to hit the right note for the finale. So, read on for the end to “Creative Week”. A post I affectionately title, “What are you prepared to do?” Time to let you in on a little secret: this… Read more »

I have no idea what I’m writing

In the penultimate post from “Creative Week”, we continue to talk writing. As you will see, however, much of the time, I have no idea what I’m writing. So, let’s set the wayback machine to almost 10 years ago. Gosh! I can hardly believe it’s been that long! But, there it was, “Black Monday”. My… Read more »

It takes more than good material

I’ve got some great blog post ideas. I had all of them yesterday, too, when I decided not to post. And, I’ll still have them tomorrow, when I’m finished with this “post”. Because, it takes more than good material. Yes, some distractions came up yesterday. No, none of them are really why there isn’t a… Read more »

The mysterious return of the mixed blessing

Despite all the recent turmoil over Facebook’s responsibility and transparency, that’s not the hottest I’ve been about the social platform. Nope, I’ve had more pressing personal and professional grievances. Unexplained changes vexed me. And now arrives the mysterious return of the mixed blessing. I can take you back to just a few short weeks ago…. Read more »

Upon which side sit my better angels?

Producing a blog can be a reasonably comfortable affair. Even those, like mine, that attempt to create a new post every day. Unlike mine, though, many of those blogs stick to a single subject.

Save me from great ideas

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had a long-time feature running on my Facebook pages ever since the start of my Facebook “career”. This all began… Read more »

Time traveling with Facebook

A little over seven years ago, I was preparing to publish my first book. Everything I had read as well as my publisher said I needed a web presence. So, I created this website and also a Facebook page. What was needed was regular content and what I decided on ultimately has me time traveling… Read more »

New year, new look?

Nah, despite what the picture shows, I don’t think that hairstyle is going to have the ladies flocking. If, for no other reason, I just don’t have that much hair. But I was thinking my first blog post in January should represent a new year, new look. I’m pretty turtle speed when it comes to… Read more »

Under my thumb

You probably haven’t noticed recently, but I’ve been having problems with my thumbs. Thumbnails, to be exact. And only with Facebook. My traditional method for posting my blog has been to publish it to three social media platforms. To do this, I use a WordPress (the blog program) app called “Jetpack”, which has many different functions…. Read more »

I’m not oblivious

There’s a lot of stuff going on in the world. Really, when isn’t there? In the moment, it tends to feel as if there’s never been a time like this. Unless you count the time before or the time yet to come. And still, it doesn’t stop pictures of pets or food being posted on… Read more »
