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? Keyless entry you seem to find. Secrets revealed by lingering thought. Thoughts that eat at time I’ve bought. Can I slay… Read More »

Blogging, WordPress, Goals & Doubters

I have been blogging through the tired for over a year now. We all hit the ceiling of motivation eventually and then we must decide what is important to us. Why do we blog? Why do we keep blogging? For me it has always been simple and I have had a general idea of my… Read More »

Blogging 501

Some people ask me how I manage it all. The site, the comments, posting, and networking all by myself. It really is simple. I just try to see it all. When I stop being able to “see it all” it means I have become too focused on one particular thing and I force myself to… Read More »
