Is it plagiarism if I do it to myself?

I’m on record (right here in this blog) saying I’ll keep to a strict daily blog for a minimum of the weekdays (there’s always the possibility of a bonus post over the weekend).  That’s a commitment I’m happy to keep and, while I have many topics that I can cover, another thought struck me during… Read more »

It was funny when I….

You can fill in the blank…wrote it, said it, thought it.  You know, you had to be there. The funny thing about trying to be funny is that the only thing you’re absolutely sure of is that you thought you were funny at the time. There are plenty of times when you are telling a… Read more »

Withholding comment

Time once again for our continuing series of random ponderings on life in cyberspace.  Today’s chapter:  Life as a website admin. Being but a tadpole in my writing career, I reasoned it would not be likely to need an administrator of my blog and message board.  Until I built up some mass with substantial sales, it… Read more »

A blog a day keeps the cobwebs away

Did I just type that?

Let’s hop in our way-back machines today and take a short trip.  What’s that?  You don’t have a way-back machine?  Well, you can all pile in mine, but keep your feet off the seats please! Our journey is a quick one this time, just about a year and half ago.  I was given the time… Read more »

Under review

Continuing my series of blogs related to the online world, though I had not realized I was “doing” a series, today we’re here to talk about reviews.  Please settle in your seats and turn off the electronics for the short time you’ll be visiting.  I’ll try to keep today’s “lesson” brief, so you can be… Read more »

“Waddya mean by ‘hi’?”

Publishing a blog created an interesting question for me:  Was I still allowed to voice an opinion?  Stay with me, it’s not as obvious an answer as it appears. Even the youngest of you reading this have noticed the extreme sensitivity everyone has these days to, well, just about anything.  In my lifetime…let me digress… Read more »

The blog with no name

I was a bit trepidatious (sorry, I get paid by the letter) at having another blog about names so quickly after the last, but as you will shortly see, it’s a totally different tack, so I’m thinking you’ll allow me the redundancy.  Although, let’s be serious, it’s hardly a pitchfork-and-torch offense.  Still, I wanted to… Read more »
