Quality Posts vs. Quantity of Posts

I don't really do New Years resolutions, but I am hoping to produce at least two blog posts every week in the future. The problem with this is it can be difficult coming up with something to blog about. I can make a list of all the things I want to write, but most of [...]

Thank You To All The People That Follow Me

I wasn't going to do a Thanksgiving post, but then I got to thinking of how far I've come in the last year or so. I went from having zero likes and scant amount of views to having a fair few faithful readers who are willing to read my stuff and give me their feedback. I [...]

When Life Throws Off Your Writing Groove

So you've been writing for a while, but you aren't getting very far. You spin your wheels day after day, hoping soon it'll all come together. You know it's a good idea, you're just having a hard time getting it started. You think it's just another day. You sit at your desk, grab your pen, [...]
