Sheesh

This whole webmaster stuff is an enormous pain in the neck (sometimes literally). I have accumulated both a greater respect and greater sympathy for those diligent and silent suffering people who are responsible for keeping everyone’s sites up, running and current. When I contracted with my web hosting service for design work on the web… Read more »

Anti-social networking

Having a web presence today is as much a given as having a car; both seem to be considered indispensable to succeed in your work.  It was no stretch for me to figure I needed a website to communicate with my readers, not only about my writing, but as a locus for general thought and… Read more »

I laugh so as not to weep

Yes, this was supposed to be on Friday, but these things happen. If you’ve been following along up until now, you’ve noticed the tone of the posts is usually light.  Even the occasional rant (such as Thursday’s) is hopefully accented to the positive.  That’s obviously on purpose. With the recent disaster in Japan fresh in… Read more »

This space for rent

I was about halfway through a long blog on memory when I stopped to reread it and discovered it was utterly boring. This creates quite a problem, since I can’t think of anything interesting to fill the space here today and yet I have committed to daily blogs.  That leads to the question of whether… Read more »

Briefly

It came to my attention after reviewing the recent blogs that many of these posts are long.  Given that some of you possibly have lives outside my website, I am designating this week as “brief post week”. There may be some cynical people out there that say this is nothing more than a transparent stunt… Read more »

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

It has always been my intention to make this a “daily” log.  That is, post a blog every weekday and take the weekends off.  After all, you aren’t going to be logging on here during your two valuable free days over the weekend just to read my prosaic musings, riveting though they may be.  No,… Read more »

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 »
