"That is the questi...wait.
What the frik am I doing here?
I'm a famous playwright.
And I'm dead."
I try to take a day or two throughout the week to pay a visit to you all on Blogger.
Of course, a few of you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, so you have that going for you. We call you "Gluttons For Punishment." Others? We interact here on Blogger. We call you the "Lucky Ones."
Yesterday I read a post from one of the aforementioned "Lucky

Anyway, anyone with rudimentary detective skills (or knows to put on socks before shoes) can probably figure out who this post came from.
She was wondering whether to do a podcast to get her message out. It's a very important message (nothing like the empty-calories crap you'll find here), so I told her that she should go for it.
But, another thing upon which she puzzled is whether blogging is becoming more passe with the passage of time. Maybe, she opined, sites like Blogger are giving way to newer, more hip platforms.
I have to admit that I've wondered the same thing, especially since I've returned to (semi) regularly posting here.
Over the past several months, I've written/posted elsewhere. I've

I've also been active on Instagram (which often links back to

One thing I've enjoyed doing is creating videos which I post on Facebook Sundays at 6:00. I certainly don't get paid for these (nor should I), but they're fun.
You may start to see these here.
I repeat-none of them are bestsellers.
This is why I do what I do.
All this, and I continue to write. I'm up to six books now and have plans for several more. None of them are bestsellers, mind you. Still, I like writing them.
My point, IS blogging going the way of the typewriter, BETA VCR, MySpace, blacksmiths, and ethics in government?
I have no plans on stopping blogging again, although my footprint will be reduced (you may have noticed this already, thinking, "Oh, thank God!!)? I may even see about doing the A-Z Challenge again (do we still do that?).
You'll probably see more duplication of effort here, especially if you follow me elsewhere, but I'll still be around.
But, know this...the
I'm still waiting for a "Blog of Note" award, after all (do they still do that anymore?).

|"Okay, we get it already! You had a tough year!! Move on!!!|
The past year was fraught was drama, stress, and anxiety. Having to deal with the aforementioned drama, stress, and anxiety took up time which could have been devoted to other, less excruciating, pursuits. What made things worse was the fact that the vast majority of my ills were self-induced. Some of you out there know what I'm talking about. Some of you don't. In any case, I won't go into the whole story here. Blah, blah, blah, enough already, right?

"Did I forget to put on pants again?
My legs feel cold."
However, as time went on and emotional wounds started to scar
I'm also happy to report that, after significant delays, I've published books number five and six.
|Thank goodness someone wrote it with me.|
Someone had to keep me under control
I'm pretty proud of it, but I had to return to the silly.
The second one, St. Stan's: Tales From the Penguin Academy, is
I'm proud to report that I was able
to afford page numbers this time.
Nuns never forget.
