Guest Blogging On My Blog

I expect anyone that guest blogs on my blog to “blog” similar to how I do. That means responding to comments, following up with people, and monitoring their posts. This is a minimum expectation I have for any blogger I read, follow, or allow on my website. Bloggers that fail to uphold the same standards… Read More »

The Death of aopinionatedman.com

This is what happens when you cut the WordPress string and swim on your own. You drop, you rebuild, and you move forward. I miss my old rank though… -OM @smokendust

How to find out if people are stealing from you

Most people may not have to worry about this, but some of us will find that people will steal anything. I have had my articles and posts lifted from my sites since I began blogging in 2013. It never gets easy to accept and it grates at you as you see your words highlighted on… Read More »

Sleepless nights

Sleepless nights I think of you. Through falling sunfire and morning dew. Even my dreams are no longer mine. Your presence there I see a sign. How do you come to own this mind?

Unimportant Me

I revel in the fact that I am unimportant because if I “mattered” then I would have to watch what I say. I will never run for political office, will never be Star Fleet Commander, and will never appear on TV to defend my views. I have always found it amusing how “random people” get… Read More »
