So for the last couple of months, I've been going through my essays, re-reading them, tweaking them where necessary, and started posting them on Hubpages. (It will probably take a few more months to post all the existing ones.) Well, in the past few weeks, some of those essays have been deemed sparkly and magnificent enough to be featured on LetterPile. So, here they are...
If you're feeling up to checking them out, just click on the

are not a member, you may comment here, as an open post for the essays.
On Commenting on Essays:
I do ask that you are respectful in doing so, whether you
agree with me or not. I am very much a supporter of free speech. I like to hear
both sides and love a true debate of ideas.
Having said that, comments that are just there solely for
the purpose of trolling will be, in the wise words of Jim Wright, sent out the
airlock. Yes, I do moderate. Why, two reasons.
When I said respectful debate, I meant it. "You
suck." and it's ilk are not helpful nor promoting a meaningful discussion
by any means. All my essays have been researched with sources sited. I did the
work, I expect you to do so as well.
It's my blog. I know the argument is totally weak and right
up there with "Because I said so," but it is also true.
Yes, I confess that I have fallen behind in my own self appointed progress on this blog as well as my other sites on the web. Even my Facebook page, which I was keeping updated fairly well, has not gotten a lot of love since the holiday season. (The stories why will have to wait for another time.) But I have been slowly getting back on track. So, as I stated in my last entry, here are some updates on my presence in cyberspace. I posted an article on the Allied Properties blog. You can read it here. And I have taken some of the posts off my blog here and put them up elsewhere, as they are more appropriate in those venues. As they go live, I will be adding the links to them.
