Deep Thought

One of my personal rules on blogging has always been not to comment on things that irritate me at work, not least because I'm blogging under my own name and the parties in question could find said comments. To be fair, these last few years I've worked with a great batch of people (at two different jobs), but there are always small and occasionally large things that raise one's hackles.

I think this rule is why my blogging has always ever been so light.  If only because my daily job, like everyone's, encompasses so much of my daily experience.  Not commenting on it puts a huge chunk of my thoughts and feelings out of play.


On a related note, people who say disparaging things about co-workers on Facebook not only violate my one rule in an even baser fashion, they also violate their mother with their clear lack of upbringing.

Poor mom.

An Experiment In Capitalism

Having let this blog sit idle for the better part of a year, I decided upon my return to try something Completely Different: I have signed up to do sponsored posts/reviews/poems/interpretive dance pieces for a little joint called PayPerPost.

As excited as I am to whore out my little corner of the blogosphere to the highest bidder, I do not have high hopes for turning any real profit.  Still, having a post or two potentially provide a little beer money is more potential beer money than any of my posts were generating otherwise.

Any sponsored posts will be noted in the post itself.  Don't expect to see such a note very often, I would say.  Then again, it will probably be more often than anyone's seen anything on this site in the past nine months or so.

So there's that.
