Changes to the Blog – Sort of, Changes to Life, Return of the Vlog?

Changes to the Blog – Sort of. Problem:  I keep saying I need more writing customers.   What I’ve got now isn’t bad, just doesn’t put me on as solid footing as I’d like. Problem 2:  I’ve got a company website.  However, it’s geared towards my other field, video game development.  It’s rather hard to …

Prepping for the first con I've done in a while... (ICT Comic Con) 3

Prepping for the first con I’ve done in a while… (ICT Comic Con)

August 27th, 2016 is ICT Comic Con & Science Fiction Convention here in Wichita.  I’ve done cons before – I’ve been an attendee, a vendor, and a speaker.  I do the Great Plains Renaissance Festival twice a year, but that’s not quite a con, though it’s got some con-like stuff going on (like the Kansas Authors’ Pavilion …

2016 Goals Part II:  Pushing Forward on Health 11

2016 Goals Part II: Pushing Forward on Health

My 2016 goals aren’t written in order of importance, but instead, written in order of coherence.  Basically, the things I can articulate reasonable are the things I’m writing about first. I had some pretty solid workout / health goals for 2015, and I failed to meet them.  Now, that’s not to say I didn’t improve. …

A #FreeTheNipple moment I had to wrap my brain around... 13

A #FreeTheNipple moment I had to wrap my brain around…

So, earlier today, someone I knew made a #FreeTheNipple post on Facebook (without the hashtag).  I’m a support of the concept, but this one caused me a moment of vapor lock as I was trying to reason out online etiquette for it. Normally, if someone posts a picture of themselves dressed nice, or doing something …
