Some More Good News

I know that I said I was going to post some photos of my San Francisco trip, but alas, life caught up with me. The past three wells were crazy. My in laws were visiting for my wife's birthday, and work has been so crazy busy that I had time for nothing. My home office…

Where My Blog Goes From Here

I wrote in my last post about my wavering on whether to keep my blog going as the original theme basically no longer is there, and I didn't know if I had it in me to continue on. After some really very beautiful comments of encouragement and support, I was made to realize that I…

Has My Blog Reached Its End?

What The Blogging From A To Z Challenge Was Like For Me

For the month of April, or rather, most of the month, I took part in the Blogging a From A To Z Challenge, posting every day for the month of April (except Sundays), with each day being a post of each letter of the alphabet. This year, like last year, I did not have a…

A Is For Accusations! Who Are We To Judge?

THIS IS A BLOGGING A TO Z CHALLENGE POST April 1, 2015 – “A” A few years ago I was taking the train back home from New York City when a clean, well dressed young man came to my car and announced that he had his wallet stolen and that he did not have enough…

Tomorrow Is The Start Of The Blogging A To Z Challenge

It starts tomorrow and I have no “theme” idea for my Blogging A To Z April Challenge. I am not sure that I need one really. It will be a challenge in itself to come up with a post for each day of the month. If you are not familiar with the challenge, it is…

A Dedicated Visitor or A WordPress Glitch?

My blog averages about 50 visitors a day, with about twice as many views. Yesterday however, I had 31 visitors and 867 views. Either WordPress had a system glitch or someone pretty much looked at almost every post I had in one day. That's dedication. Hats off to you mystery visitor. Hats off to you….

They came by the thousands, banging on my virtual door, demanding that I reopen my FaceBook page! Okay, well it wasn't that many, but some of you requested I open back my FaceBook page so you can have the blog posts delivered to your news feeds, and I have succumbed. Welcome back Facebook users!  …

I Am Shutting Down My Newspaper

Sarcoidosis News Daily Review, my daily newspaper is coming to an end as of tomorrow. Quite honestly, I started the paper a while ago as a bit of self promotion to gain followers on my blog. It didn’t really work, and I am not into gathering followers anymore. I am in a place now where…
