Blogging, as I sit here on the sofa waiting for The Walking Dead, I think about blogging and how to get started. I'll be honest I have no idea what I'm doing, but I want to do it, and if I do it wrong, well let's call it trial and error right. So anyway with blogging does editing matter? Because...

Sometime after puberty, most people put away their toys and stop playing dress-up and pretend in order to take a stab at being an adult.

Others go to Hollywood where they can continue playing dress-up and pretend. Maybe because they cannot find work as a grown-up. Maybe because they cannot stop p... Read more of this blog post »
