posting woes

It has been quite a while since I have posted on here.  I don’t know why exactly, just life got in the way, or I just didn’t have the desire.  I finally came up with a solution to some registrar problems and that is why my URL has slightly changed.  I worked quite a while last night on getting links changed and things working correctly on my blog here, and it is mostly fixed.  The podcasts are still a mess, another issue with Amazon S3 that we wont get into.  Here is the thing that I found the most strange after all of this, I got everything set up because I wanted to post something again.  Then, I got into a blank post editor and I didn’t know what I wanted to do.  I have looked at this screen off and on for about 9 hours now, and I am finally writing something.  I am kind of confused because I did want to post.  Bring a little of that old cathartic magic back, but when it was time to step up and do it, I drew a blank.  I didn’t want to write.  I guess I was just content to let the site lie.  I don’t know how many people are actually reading this blog anymore, I don’t really care.  There are so many blogs out there, who can keep track of them all?  When I started in this adventure, there were many but not overly flooded like there is now.  I started podcasting because it was cool, and I really wanted to have my own private radio station.  Now the market is so flooded that I don’t know that I should bother.  I think I will stick to writing and maybe have a Talk Like a Pirate Day podcast and that is all.  I just don’t know what to do for sure.  Write, put it out there and hope that there is someone who googles for just the right thing to bring them to some profound post that I have written.  Even the Stay at Home Dad market seems to be flooded and we are not such a novelty anymore.  Bah.  I am just going to rant for a while and post.  I need the discipline of writing often and well so that I can finish my book by the end of the year.  That is the goal, the resolution, the ultimatum from the wife.  We will see what happens.  Comment down below if you feel so inclined, if not, no worries.  Just know you were here for the first post of the reboot…



The things we do….

Have you noticed how many anodynes there are laying around on the floor?  I know, the next question is WTF????  ok so this is yet another way to try and make some cash.  If you have ever signed up for one of those sites that hopefully will pay you to write?  Well they like to make sure that you own the site.  and this is the way they do it.

You get to put some strange sentence on a post so that they can verify it.  You can delete it afterwards, but it has to be there.  I ahve done some like this before, and deleted the post, leaving a gaping hole in my site where the RSS feed would like to shove something.  So I decided that this time, I would leave the sentence.  and build a post around it.

I am still a writer damn it and even if I am slow at it, I still come up with some great ideas.  One of these days, many more of those ideas will see the light of day.  For example, right now I have 20 posts in draft (read idea form) on this site.  There are many more on my other sites.

Eventually you all will be rewarded with the wonderful musings from my mind.  And the end of the Man With The Hazy Suit, My buddy Bob reminded me that it was still unfinished and at least he was waiting for the end.  I kind of gave up.  I will get that done and out as an ebook.  Maybe an audio book.  Maybe with a golden goose attached.

Ok, you all can send me a golden goose, I could really use one of those eggs right now.  Which brings up another very unrelated question that I would like some opinion on.  If the goose laid golden eggs, were they solid gold as we are lead to believe, or do they have the makings of an omlette inside?  Hmmmm…

anyway, there is too much rambling going on now and I have to go to the eye doctor.  See you all later.
