Changes Among Other Things #changes #growingup

Now that I’ve achieved the milestone age of 62, I’m going to make some changes around here. I’ve been reading and pondering, writing and revising. I’m close to retiring from my day job, but not quite ready for the big plunge into full-time writing. That doesn’t keep me from planning, however. I’m not much of […]

From Anne R. Allen’s blog: How to Stay Safe in the Internet Jungle

One of the most informative (and frightening) posts I’ve read on trying to stay safe in the “wild frontier” that is (still) the Internet.  Click here to read Anne R. Allen’s post, “The Laws of the (Amazon) Jungle—Eight Rules Authors Need to Know to Stay Safe.”  Be sure to take notes.

Can Facebook please all its users all the time?

I’m starting to think that it’s not Sunday unless the New York Times has an article on Facebook.  This week’s story gives a pretty balanced view of the latest controversies with the young whipper-snapper, the absolute latest being Facebook’s lovely (not!) new layout. But, first, what’s great about Facebook?  Well, the opportunity to rebuild families, […]

Tweety Bird

My good friends at ShesConnected set me up with a Twitter account, and I’m hooked.  I now have absolutely no excuse not to be up-to-date on all that is happening in the writing and publishing world.  [I’m not sure (yet) if that is a good thing :-)]  If you’re already on Twitter, you can follow […]
