In the last three months I have cut back the length and complexity of my blog posts. Both the amount of time it took to write so many lengthy posts and the cost involved were such that I had to trim my blog operations. I lost a number of readers when I did that which puzzles me since the average length of a visit was two minutes and my posts took much longer to read than that. Anyway, for those of you who have stuck with me a big, “Thank you.”
I disabled comments because there were too many pro-Nazi comments and I got sick of those but I certainly want to hear from you and will publish any rational comments. Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I do update the blog every day with pictures and a mixture of facts, longer posts, and photographs. My two blog masters, Terrific Tad and Amazing Adrienne, already give me a steep discount on their fees and I can hardly ask them for more. Unfortunately, even at a discount, the beautiful work they did on each blog post for the first 18 months was too expensive for me to continue. The cost of publishing a blog as well done as mine was for the first 18 months is now prohibitive to me since I haven’t worked in several years. I hope this changes and soon.
And speaking of money: I’m looking for work as a consultant and as a writer for high level corporate projects because of my background in working for three different Fortune 100 financial services firms and being a consultant to dozens more. If you know of something, please let me know at email@example.com.
As for my writing, at this moment I am working on a brief memoir of my fraternity days at Tulane University in New Orleans in the 1970s. This is supposed to be amusing and so far people who have read bits of it, including people who don’t know me well, think it is most amusing. I will post excerpts of it from time to time.
My health remains sound and I have recovered almost all of my strength. It has taken almost three years to go through the chemo and recovery but I’m not complaining. So I am looking forward to a healthy and productive 2012. Thank you again for your support of my efforts.
