Without This, LinkedIn Thinks I Don’t Exist (It Seems)…

How’s it going? I realized a little something yesterday, but it didn’t fully hit me until later. Let’s get to it. Yesterday I posted for the first time on LinkedIn. Just like a Facebook status update, even though I was … Continue reading

It Took a While, but a Friend and My Brother Conspired to Turn Me Into…

The week’s kinda flown by, hasn’t it? Anyway, let’s get to it. And don’t pay too much attention to the lingo…I will connect this all to fiction and copywriting, too. Despite the fact that I’m very interested in Star Wars … Continue reading

Australian Public Holidays and the Update I Said I’d Give…

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty much the usual–comics, crosswords, what-have-ya. Today is Columbus Day in America, which is about, well, Columbus. I didn’t know Columbus Day was celebrated in other countries like Latin America and Italy (I’m thinking … Continue reading

The Second Laugh Is the One I’m Looking For…

How’s your week going so far? I wanted to talk about something that I’ve noticed every so often (but not very often). Sometimes, when I say something to someone, they laugh because they think it’s funny, and it may be. … Continue reading
