Breaking up is easy to do

The unwinding of the Great North American Baseball Road Trip continues. Before I left on my grand journey, I puzzled over how to deliver the posts and blogs I planned on making throughout the trip.  I didn’t want to copy them and paste them in multiple media (Facebook, Twitter, my website, etc.). A solution presented… Read more »

Get it back!

Ugh.  That sinking feeling after you press publish, post, comment, tweet or send.  Then comes the mad rush to figure out how to save the situation. At least when it came to my books, people are required to plunk down money before they can see my blunders (granted, this makes them extra mad, but the… Read more »

Miss Communication

Yeah, I know what you’ve been thinking.  Every day it’s the same thing.  Over and over about his road trip.  Doesn’t he have anything else to post about? Well, bunky, not for the next two months (and change).  But fear not, for lest you old-timers forget or newcomers be unaware, there’s a whole bunch of… Read more »

No more weekends off

Over the five years and many hundred of blog posts on my website, I’ve held to a fairly regular irregular schedule.  I work a daily blog for as many as all five weekdays and take the weekends off. I haven’t posted every day, as I have to find something that interests me to post first… Read more »

(insert clever headline here)

During my time in advertising, most of my effort in print was spent trying to come up with the “hook”; that catchy headline that would grab the potential customer. It’s really all in the headline, when it comes to print, be it billboards, magazines, newspapers or, now, web banners. You can get away with pigs leaning… Read more »

Hitting 500

Today.  Right here. In honor of my 500th blog post, I thought to check out the number 500 in the world around us.  Some interesting things shake out about this fantastic, yet often ignored, milestone. It appears that the number 500 is not beloved by the movie, TV or music fields.  To wit: – Only… Read more »

Plumb wore out

I had a good blog post planned for today, but I’m still tuckered out from the three sets of tennis earlier (5-7, 7-5 and 5-7 tie-breaker in the third). I think I used to be younger. Tomorrow for youse guyz!

I still have no dedication to my writing

Coming up with new ideas for my blogs isn’t easy.  After nearly five years and nearly 500 posts, inspiration is tough to come by.  That’s where my daily walks come in.  Turning “off” the brain during the walk allows all manner of creative thought to bubble up.  I will usually come up with the headline… Read more »

Is my face red!

A special emergency Sunday edition of the blog for a big mea culpa! So there I am, cleaning the shower doors and mirrors when I am saved from my least favorite thing in the world (cleaning) by the sound of an email.  Now, normally, an email isn’t enough to get me to jump up and… Read more »
