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 »

We interrupt your regularly scheduled posts

Back in 2013, I began a daily routine of posting on Facebook a quote and a picture that in some way represented the key word from the quote.  I’ve continued that weekday posting ever since. Sometimes they’ve sparked commentary, sometimes “likes” and sometimes shares.  It’s a fun little exercise in imagination for me and hopefully… 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 »

Which social media fits a social misfit?

Yeah, we’re there.  Decision time. Okay, I’ve whittled it down to only two choices to help chronicle my daily adventures on the Great North American Baseball Road Trip.  Well, not really choices, because I have to probably use both, but here’s where I am: Facebook – I have lots more “followers” and an unlimited posting… 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 »

When in doubt…

No need to shout; As long as eyes stout; You can find out No need to fret; wipe away the wet; you’re sure to get; what you seek from the ‘net For example, like me; I could no longer see; On my old iPhone 3G; My playlists three With them now gone, I could play… Read more »

Looking for new tones

Negative reviews fascinate me. I use the term “negative”, specifically, as opposed to critical.  The latter embodies a definition that includes “expressing or involving an analysis of the merits and faults of a work”.  The former is generally an expression of flat disapproval. The fascinating part to me is the difference in tone between positive,… Read more »
