I’ve also enjoyed getting to know both of you! I’m glad some of us oldies are still around. -OM

Top of JC's Mind

When I wrote about Just Jot It January on New Year’s Day, I said that I didn’t usually use the #JusJoJan prompts from Linda’s blog except for One-Liner Wednesdays and Stream of Consciousness Saturdays, but I decided to set aside what I had planned to post today in favor of Linda’s prompt, which was to write about your blog.

What blogger would ignore the chance to write about their own blog?

I started blogging after several friends suggested that I should. At the time, I was writing a lot of comments on articles about fracking as part of the fight against fracking in my home state of New York, our neighbor Pennsylvania, and in the US and around the world. I also would post on Facebook about a range of other topics, including feminism, progressive politics, and (also progressive) Catholicism. I knew I couldn’t contain myself to write about…

Riddle from the Middle

#BlackInWhiteChurch Explicated: ThreePointOh Blog

“I’d have to say the most anxiety-laden moment in a Black person’s experience at a predominantly White church is when the person in the pulpit says, “Turn and greet your neighbor and tell them you’re glad they’re here.”

Black person: Will they say hi? Will they look me in the eye? Will they shake my hand? Will they smile at me? Do they see me? Are they hoping I’ll not turn around? Do they know how petrified I am right now? Am I welcome here? Am I safe?”


Depression Settles at the Bottom: Harsh Reality

“I don’t view depression as waves, at least not for me. My depression feels like white flakes in a snow globe and are activated when something shakes me to my core. I become the center and the space around me becomes my world, a world I cannot see. While blinded I…

The Cat's Write

I went out on a limb again (hand, foot, leg and pinky this time) and asked some of my favourite bloggers if they might like to answer a few more of those burning questions we’re all thinking about. Because yes, the above question (and the others coming up in the next few weeks) were all sourced from you. So I must say, once again, thank you for the inspiration!

Today I’m bringing up the subject of trolling. You may have noticed there exists an online ‘code’ that dictates we should: never respond to the trolls ever!! EVER!! In some circumstances, yes, I completely agree (unless you enjoy a good verbal spar) but some people think you should also never even address the trolls.

Well… I decided to blog about trolling for three reasons, namely 1) to show other bloggers that they aren’t alone, 2) to let the trolls know they were

Cyranny's Cove

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

For those of you who have never experienced a Picture Battle in The Cove, worry not! It isn’t the least violent, and to say the truth, it is just an annoying way I found to make sure that Jason (OM) from Harsh Reality doesn’t forget me!

So what happens, is that OM will post a picture on his blog, and I’ll do a cheap version of it… Well, usually. This time, I feel like I’ve given my all (and don’t worry if you don’t see your face on my plane… I still have many many of you to add there, but I just had to post this before I leave work, and the minutes were running.)

See OM’s povocation here!

I worked hard, but I must say that I am not fighting against OM tonight. More against his lovely daughter, and I think it…
