Continuing With the Website

There’s something weirdly satisfying about working on the website. I don’t know whether it’s the idea of a project that can be completed in a couple of days, or just that I like it so much better this way. It is better this way, isn’t it? Yes, I know there are a few links that

Renovation Has Begun

I am moving things around on my webpage, and I have things thrown around everywhere. The photos on that front page slider are all mine, although I have not the faintest what they have to do with anything else in the world. And eventually, I’ll have to change the “featured areas” to something meaningful and

IWSG: Schedules and Timelines

The Thing About Symbols…

The thing that came up during my recent Twitter surge… Well, the thing other than wedding dress porn. (You note the absence of a link.) Was the idea of symbols. Well, that’s what came up for me. What came up for a lot of people, apparently, was YOU’RE WRONG!!! I had raised the question of

Running My Mouth

I’m enjoying the last ripples of one of those freak social media surges, and–as usual–debating how on earth you can harness something like that. One week into October, my Twitter impressions are up. More than 500% up (yes, that’s a cool way of saying 507%) over September. This is as a result of me hopping

Those Pesky Goals

It is September, and I have less than a hundred views left before I pass last year’s total. I’m growing–at least a little–and that makes me think about the mile markers I didn’t know existed, or didn’t think about until I hit them. The first time you’re working on your blog, and you realize there

Strangers on the Internet and Suicide

I don’t always know what happens to the people I meet on the internet. Some of them are pretty constant. A few of my followers have been around and commenting since the beginning of Reprobate Typewriter, and some of them come and go, disappear, and then resurface. I also have a couple of internet communities

Pondering Patreon

I’m not signing up, just yet, but Patreon has been on the edge of my radar for a while, now. For those of you who don’t know, Patreon is a platform that allows people to support the creatives they love by pledging various amounts of money per (well, thing created, or month, or… well, you

Related Links, or THAT’S NOT MY FAULT!

One of the things that always fascinates me about the internet is the automatically generated links. Now, a human being… they have a pretty good idea what’s related to what. They can bet that if you’re looking for desert recipes with chocolate, you’re game for pies, cakes, and tortes, and that maybe you’d settle for
