Welcome readers to a post where I write about what I might write. Exciting stuff, huh? Several sites have started posting their best of 2020 lists. It made me start to think about my year in review posts I generally write. The ones that I will definitely do: My 2020 in review – Highlights from … More Year in Review Posts
Yesterday was a big day. I announced on my blog and Facebook the news that I resigned from my job. I still have a month before I am actually free, but the end is nigh. The blog post gave me my second highest views ever on the blog. The highest is still the day a … More What Now?
I have run out of interesting pictures to post for Wordless Wednesday so I will instead bore you with some random things I’ve discovered in blogging and my stats. I never intended to write so much about myself, but the more personal posts are the ones that people actually read. When I post about news … More Some Things I’ve Discovered About My Blog
Just a quickie today to say three things: I have decided to use NaNoWriMo to try to start a memoir about my time in jail. We will see how that goes. Maybe that is a good enough alternate plan to convince my wife I should quit my job. I’m sure it will be a bestseller … More A Quick Update
12 years now. Nothing new to say. I didn’t get any official notification from WordPress that it is today, but my Facebook memories told me that last year was 10 years on WordPress.

Wow. This was over 10 years ago. I still haven’t found a following. I’m not good at that and my blog isn’t good enough to draw in readers based solely on content. I don’t think I’ve reached the goal of redeveloping my writing skills. I still stand by the final answer of writing what you … More How/Why I Got Into Blogging
When looking at TimeHop today I saw I had written a post about pet peeves during a writing challenge. I thought “Maybe I should revisit those and talk about how it has changed.” Turns out it hasn’t changed. I listed three: lateness, bad drivers and people who say they don’t have time to read. All … More Nothing New to Say?
After I published my last post(My Christmas Vacation) I received a notification from WordPress that I had reached 1000 posts on this blog. At one point not too long ago I realized I was close and thought that I should come up with something special for the 1000th post. I then completely forgot and had … More Post 1001
