It’s all about sales
As I was thinking through today’s post, which we’ll get to shortly, I came to realize a certain truth underlying my original topic, thus causing me to change the title to the header you just read. Whether it’s serpents and apples, employees and raises, kids and toys or businesses and products, it’s always been about… Read more »
Oh, sorry. Were you gone?
Well, you passed the test. Or failed it, I suppose. Depends on your point of view. Though there are many plugin applications available to track and catalog readers’ activity on web sites (though without any real information on the users themselves – relax), the data is useful but not always insightful. So while I know… Read more »
Right after regaling you about why my blog is not about selling more books and only nominally about my writing, here’s a post that is about my lack of posts about my writing. If you’ve been to the Facebook page, there have been no more photos of the beach. If you’ve been to the forum,… Read more »
Then what’s it for?
I had someone ask me the other day if my blog was helping me sell any books. I paused a moment before replying and then, knowing what kind of response it would receive, I told him the blog wasn’t meant to sell any books. Thus you have the titular comment for today’s post. This blog… Read more »
Today’s forecast: Fear!
I wanted to wait until after the 1 pm update to confirm that we are indeed facing our first hurricane of the 2011 Atlantic tropics season. Oh joy. It’s the trade-off you get in Florida for the rights to twelve months of outdoor activity. It’s the same trade off you get with tornados and amber… Read more »
Yeah, I got your user friendly right here. The new computer arrived about the time it was originally scheduled to ship (it’s like Scotty on Star Trek…tell ‘em it can’t be done for 3 days and have it done in an hour), which eased my mind because I thought it would arrive (typically) on the… Read more »
The Trip – Part 2
Our regular posting was delayed due to the new computer; we’ll get to that adventure in a rare Saturday blog. For now, we finish off the tale of the Keys trip. As expected, when I arrived to pick up Dad at 4:30 am, he had more stuff with him than we had talked about. I… Read more »
The Trip – Part 1
Tomorrow, I will be driving my Dad, my two nieces and their shared girlfriend down to the Keys for some fishing and snorkeling. This promises to be a memorable trip, if but for the passengers along for the ride. Dad, as befits an active octogenarian, has definite opinions about how people should be driving, acting… Read more »
Bugged by the heat
I’m not a big fan of bugs in the house. This is probably not a particularly unique attitude, but it has a tendency to be discussed more than I would imagine for some reason. The subject came up again last week when I was visiting a friend and her (just about) 3-month old boy. She… Read more »
This is not a fantasy. This is not a tale of make believe. What follows is real life; a depiction so eerie, so terrifying that you may have trouble sleeping peacefully tonight. Read on, if you will, but beware, for you may feel a presence surrounding you that you were yet unawares… They know. That’s… Read more »
