A Housekeeping & News Update for May

Not too much to say. Just wanted to let you know that three more of my poems have been moved from here to the website.

I have also had three more of my essays promoted to LetterPile. Here are the links.

So, that is all I have for now. TTFN!

The LetterPile Hat Trick

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 links. If you are a member of Hubpages, feel free to leave a comment. If you 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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

The Long Delayed Update That Was Promised

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.
That is all for now. Stay tuned for more. TTFN!
