Mulch Ado About Nothing

Do you ever come across a website that offers to make your life better and you think, “Great, but this is too good to be true”? I’ve often come across these as ambitious startups offering something free or asking me to please give my email address for updates which never actually come. Well, when I […]

October 17, 2017 is my new project


I’ve been busy lately. Work has kept me busy, in a good way. I really enjoy what I’m doing. But I’m always wanting something more, something I can control. Enter Some time last year, Tinder was a really popular app for people looking to have some sex with strangers. Many people I talked to […]

Featured Images at a Blog Near You


You may not have noticed if you don’t read this website by visiting the site, but I have added featured images on the homepage. I’m here to tell you that it’s a rather large deal. In fact, I think I might have solved a greater issue I’ve had with images and this website. Way back […]

I’ve been obsessed with speed lately. Page speed. You might have noticed that this website loads damned quick. Or you didn’t really have time to notice. That’s because of me. When I redesigned the website, I only took looks into account. I wanted clean and simple so that’s what I built. Then I came across […]

Website Redesign

Website Woes


I have a few writings on the back-burner at the moment because, if you haven’t noticed, my site is plagued with issues now. I can’t seem to figure out what the problem is. I suspect faulty databases. That’s what I’m going to attempt to fix next. Anyway, hang in there. If things don’t look right […]

Web Redesign 2013


I know I mentioned a while back that I wanted to redesign my site. It was probably further back than I’m used to for announcing website updates. And I realize, if you poke around this site, nothing has really changed yet. But don’t think I’m not working on it, because I am. I’m limited on […]

I Write Like


I came across a plugin for Chrome today, which just a redirect to The website is called I Write Like and the purpose is to analyze your writing and tell you which famous author it resembles. It’s a neat tool, but it got me thinking. Why do I care who I write like? I’ve […]

Holiday maintenance


Just a heads up. I need to update my blog software manually because I’m running into an error on the automatic update. The site might be down for a bit. Thinking about it, if the site is down, you won’t be able to read this. Anyway, I’m going to try and post soon. Happy holidays […]
