Of writing

Over the course of blogging, I’ve made occasional mention of the “right” way to blog.  Based on professionals and experts everywhere, having a single theme and targeting potential readers (subscribers) to that theme generates the best performance of a website.  Regular readers know I have no general theme, much like my brain.  Much like life….

Your meter is running

Back when I first started this journey, back all the way to the first tinkerings on What if?, I considered how to keep all my previous co-workers and friends updated on my progress writing. Inspired and influenced, no doubt, by two decades of Life in the Land of Spreadsheets, I came up with a goofy… Read more »

But do you have any readers?

I got a birthday call from my oldest friend yesterday.  Not that he’s my oldest friend, he’s just my oldest friend. Staying friends that long usually means you have a few things in common and a decent amount of real care about the person.  We are unmerciful with our sarcastic pitchforks that we poke at… Read more »

It’s my blog and I’ll cry if I want to…

  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=kaR_jfoYL1Q   I’ve been wrestling with writing a new blog for a few days.  Initially, it was going to be a rant on what’s considered realistic writing, but then it occurred to me that a blog like that was entirely self-serving and possibly (probably?) of little interest to anyone else. Normally, I wouldn’t care. … Read more »

Write it down!

I came up with a couple of good blog ideas last week.  Really, some very entertaining themes I think you would have enjoyed. Too bad I forgot what they were.  All you get today is this one. Usually, I’m very good about rushing to a pad or a piece of paper or the flap of a… Read more »

Under the influence

Beginning next week (or tomorrow, for those of you who start the week with Sunday), I’ll be offering something a bit different with my blog posts. What Next? will likely be in full release sometime during the week (paperback and e-book) and I want to try to “liven up” the Facebook page for Jeremy Shuttle, so… Read more »

Fear of flying

 It’s looking very much like I will finish the book this week, so I think it’s time to spend the time blogging about writing.  Welcome to “Writing Week” on the JMD blog.  Now, read on… I have been struggling for some time with the final chapters to Book 2 (What Next?).  I don’t know how… Read more »

Wireless begone!

Alternatively, this post could have been called “Son of Wireless” or “Wireless, the Sequel” since it’s a direct descendent of my post much earlier this year.  You probably should read that one first, so go now, before it’s too late:(http://jeffreymdaniels.com/blog/?p=717). Digression:  Yes, I finally started adding the actual link to the blog post.  I realize how… Read more »

Ah, refreshing!

Every now and then I like to take a week off from posting just to allow the blog to clean out the spamsters.  It’s a little like refreshing your modem or rebooting your computer…cleans out the noise and everything runs a bit better. It’s still amazing to me how much spam there is and how… Read more »

Playing tag

I’m really enjoying my categorizing of all the posts I’ve put up on this blog so far.  During the process of rereading the posts, I have been pleasantly reminded of some of the stories I’ve shared with you.  I think I may devote a future week to my favorite posts, similar to the week where… Read more »
