Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

A Mea culpa and a request

I know I have been very scarce of late, and I do apologize. No excuses, but I would like to fill you in on some of what has kept me away.

A keyboard. Just that! Usually until midnight or 1 AM, sometimes every night. It seems I am at my most productive on that beast when the sun drops out. Heck, there was one night where I went to bed at 1am and was back up at 4 tapping away further. The cat n dog are adapting to it with a ” Dads writing again, I’m outta here,,,,” attitude.

Ah, but what is Dio writing you ask? Some nights is the Tick Tock and Gamer story, being re-vamped and fleshed out. Other nights is a How-to guide for going off Grid while dead broke: I may not be expert at off-grid living, but By Dog, I did it, and I can help people avoid some of the more painful mistakes.

So, where does that leave the Blog? As you guessed, kinda gathering dust at the moment. Here soon, the place is likely to get a makeover; new paint, doodads in the corners, maybe a Ruebenesque statue in the entrance. LOL, just kidding. A makeover, yes, but only in links and maybe a new page or two. Gonna have to open some of those evil social media types, but not under my usual name, but my pen name. Don’t want to get the garbage I was getting from workmates that caused me to close down the mess originally.

And on that note, I am putting out a call to my regular readers for a favor. I would like a volunteer for proofing the How-to guide, and whomever steps up, I am asking for tyranical proofing. If a paragraph isn’t clear, slam me on it. If I am tripping over a point that you feel is critical; red highlighter amd notes of your opinion.

In return, you not only get a credit, but one of the first copies, paw-printed by your not so humble doofus of a blogger, and I’ll even get the human to put his name in there somewhere. 😉

BUT: I need a response from someone by the 28th of this month, or I will hire out for the job.

Any takers?

Let me know in comments and we’ll get together via PM in emails.

    Hey bud, not sure how much help I’d be, but glad to give my two cents. Texted you a new email address for me. My old one no longer works right. Hope alls well in the new literary venture and home front. Me and ole Rufus still here in the woods, plus two male pups of nine that ole rascal sired. Like his two legged bud, still chases those young bitches, lol.

        Ole Rufus, like his sidekick, Me, both getting long in the tooth, what I have left, lol. I estimate him to be between 12-15 years old, yet still able to be the alpha dog over his two year old offspring. lol. Almost up against me right now as thunder boomers pass through.
        Hope my couple suggestions were helpful. Sorry my comms so pitiful for now. Look forward to final drafts.
