What a long strange trip it's been. We're only one week into 2021 and already it's outdone its predecessor. Pretty sure there's no need for a recap, we've all been glued to our screens while the Capitol was stormed and breached by a bunch of dumbass Trump supporters. Chaos All those who stormed the Capitol and entered it to cause harm, fear and chaos should
Friday Blog Challenge: Create a Contact Me Page On Your Blog I can't tell you how important it is to have a Contact Me page on your blog. How will PR people find you? How will that publishing house contact you about the book they want you to write? How will your adoring readers send you chocolate when you are having a bad day? How
I can't be the only one whose blog traffic has dropped so significantly in the last few months, right? Has Google done some new changes to its algorithm? Surely it couldn't be because I only write a new post about once a month. Hell, I've been doing that for years. Is blogging dead? I can't believe that to be true. While I know the original
If you think the Facebook data breach doesn't affect you, think again. Today I got an email solicitation from a company that from the looks of it is like a payday loan service for companies. I get solicitations all the time, but this one was different. This one mentioned the name of a client for whom I provide services. I provide blogging, social media, marketing
Be warned, this ain't no highlight reel. My friend Kathy, from The Junk Drawer, posted a video on Facebook this morning. Kathy tends to post more cats and stuff from Reddit than sports so I figured there must be more to it than sports.

First of all --- Spoilers!!! If you haven't seen or heard about This is Us and that Damn Crock-Pot yet then just move on to another post. You might want to try my Reuben Balls Recipe, it's pretty awesome and you don't need a Crock-Pot to make. If you're like most people and you've seen the most recent episode of This Is Us, then you've
*Update - Since no one even guessed, and there is no way anyone could have guessed the outcome of the Saints vs Vikings game, we're gonna do it again.... Just for shits and giggles I'm doing a Vikings Playoff Giveaway. If you can predict, guess or speculate the score of next Sunday's game against the Eagles, you will win some cool Vikings memorabilia. I'm not
Recently I took a little break from social media, and this is what I learned on my Facebook Vacation. I needed a break from social media, but mostly I needed to get off of Facebook. Facebook is where I do most of my socializing. Don't judge, you probably do too, or maybe you're fond of Pinterest, or you hang out with the folks on Instagram.
As some of you may know, I'm taking a break from social media. Specifically Facebook because that's where I waste most of my time. It's only been 3 days, but it feels like forever.

I'm going to be taking a social media break. Mostly from Facebook since that is where I waste most of my time.
