Being myself

I’ve blogged here for over two years now, and my topics have ranged from the ultra-serious, as with the COIN wargaming post, to the silly and goofy, from the mundane to the strange.

It’s OK. I’ve spent so much time and effort long ago trying to be PLAIN AND NORMAL (caps on purpose) that didn’t work. I’m myself. Sometimes I have to remind myself of my own strength, and say “Coiler, be Coiler. You don’t have to be, or write like _____. Just be yourself.” And I’m taking that lesson to heart.

Being more tolerant of myself has also helped me become a lot more tolerant of other people and their tastes as well, I’ve found. So it’s very helpful and useful overall to me.

A New Month

So it’s November.

It’s gonna be real busy for me, so blogging may be limited in both number of posts and their content, especially in comparison to last month’s blast of posts.

World War 3 1987 Blog

I will share, for your pleasure and amusement, a blog┬áthat I recently found providing a “play-by-play” of a theoretical World War 3, the classic fiction and wargaming topic.

This is Third World War 1987. By my incredibly low standards (read: I’ve seen so many downright awful World War III stories on the internet that anything exceeding them is at least good in perspective) it’s good, and certainly readable. Not the best, but far, far, from the worst either.

 

Posting Multiple Times A Day Starts Now

I have never posted two blog posts in one day in the years I’ve been blogging. It’s become a sort of weird tradition. Part of it is that I like to take my time and get more involved with writing and/or thinking of posts, but the habit of “don’t post more than once a day” has become a kind of informal rule.

Well, now I’ve broken that rule. Hope this helps me blog better, and not just more.

100 posts in a year and counting

I was suffering from writer’s block, looked at the stats, and realized that the next post I’d make would be the 100th I’d made this year. So, I’m impressed by how much writing I’ve done so far.

100 posts in a year. Incredible.
