A very large component of writing this blog, or critical thinking in general, is being in the correct mind state. There are ideas all around you waiting to be plucked and discussed. Our mere existence necessitates understanding and explanation of why we do the things we do. Yet most of us wouldn’t take the time [...]

What should I be using it for? It struck me pretty odd that when my hard drive crashed I didn’t have anything really significant other than pictures. I’d taken a few trips (Seoul, New Zealand, Mexico) over the years and it would be nice to keep those, but beyond that the only thing that legitimately [...]
Yesterday while searching for some of my old Facebook posts where I was considering leaving the site and eventually did, it became apparent that each of my old posts has had an advertising area added to it!
I previously never used ads, and still don’t here, due to the fact that this site isn’t for making [...]
I see a lot of bloggers without comments sections now. I am considering getting rid of comments for a few reasons.
First off, people don’t really comment here all that often. I haven’t really tracked my traffic for sometime, but when I last did it was around 30 hits a day. Definitely nothing earth shattering, but [...]

A long time ago, when I started this blog, I thought that I was faced with a choice. That choice was basically surrounding how to use this and what it was for. I saw a lot of writers who really were all about self promotion or company promotion. In fact, that’s WHY I saw them. [...]
In my prior life, I ran the marketing department for a smaller promotional product company (top line 5mm). I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever learn as much about something again in my life. Any possible aspect of marketing had potential for us, as long as it wasn’t a huge advertising campaign with huge spend, [...]
There are a lot of things I know I should do a better job of. Tagging my posts is one. I started to tag a long time ago when this site started up, but quickly my habits trended toward forgetting to do it and it became a memory. Then out of habitual happenstance, I stopped [...]
