My Personal Blog

Before it was a platform from which to sell my writing services this website started as a place for me to write whatever I felt like writing. It was a basic html site, and many of those original pages remain.

In fact, I still add to them from time to time, when I want to write on a topic that is of interest to me but maybe not so interesting to my clients — and there are so many examples.

You can reach my old homepage — the front page of my personal blog — here:

Am I Unpatriotic?

Alas, for those of you who worship flags and get offended by those who do not, the answer to the last question is yes. I’m not a traditional sort — never have been, probably never will be. I’m non-religious, have never joined nor associated with a political party, and I have no strong beliefs in any “isms.”

Do I worry that my personal beliefs, which are somewhat radical (but peaceful) will hurt business? I used to, but fortunately I get enough writing assignments. It may help that I don’t throw my ideas in people’s faces (haven’t done that since I was young), and potential clients probably never read this far.

In any case, at some point in life we all want to just be who we are.
