2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 54,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 20 sold-out performances for that many…

My 5 Biggest Fears

#19 on the 30-Day Writing Challenge Prompt List FYI this list is not necessarily in order, but these are all things that I am deathly afraid of… #1 HEIGHTS When I say that I’m afraid of heights, I guess I should be more specific and say that I am afraid of falling from great heights.…

10 “INTERESTING” FACTS ABOUT MYSELF

Taken from the 30-Day Writing Challenge Prompt #4. I’ve previously done a list of 25 Random Facts About Me, so I’ll have to try to come up with new stuff. And I’ve put the word “interesting” in quotes because, well, whether any of these facts are actually interesting is a matter of opinion. Judge for…

That Time I Ran Out Of Gas

Let me start off by saying that this isn’t the deepest of topics. But, whatever, the day is almost over I need to make my daily post quota for the month (hey, I said I would write a new blog every day, I didn’t say I would write an important blog everyday), so here we…

Walking While Black

So here’s a story from my youth. One Saturday afternoon when I was 16 or 17, I was walking to a local park. Halfway there I walked past this police car that was parked at the sidewalk. The police officer (who just so happened to be a White male) who was in the car got…

TAGGED (again)

Alright, I’m trying to get back into regular blogging mode again. Time to live up to the name of this site and blog a lot. I know that up until yesterday’s first post I had not being doing much blogging at all in the past several months. And most of the blogs I have done…

2014 in review (I blogged a lot)

Well, still a couple of days left in the year, but I might as well post this now. Thanks to all whom have been reading this years, even in this past month when I haven’t been updating it (but I’ve still been averaging over 200 views a day!), I appreciate every single last one of…

In December I Will Not Blog A Lot

Okay, I caught up, mostly with a bunch of late comic-book reviews this weekend. This post right here now makes 30 posts for the month of November, which had 30 days. So for the 6th month in a row I’ve reached my goal of posting at least one post for every day of the month.…

J.R.’S TIPS FOR NEW BLOGGERS

A couple of months ago a Facebook friend PM’d me and asked for tips about starting a blog. And when I posted my blog about 500 (and 1) Followers, another friend on Google+ asked me how to get that many followers. Well, look, I’m no expert at blogging, as I said, I just do this…

NO MONEY, MO’ PROBLEMS

WARNING: SELF-PITYING RANT AHEAD Today is payday. Although it seems like I’m the one doing all the paying. I have direct deposit, so I wake up and get online and check my balance and see then it’s time to go down the list and start paying bills. By the time I’m done half my paycheck…

500 (and 1) FOLLOWERS!

I swear, it’s just a coincidence. Just yesterday, I read a post from a blog that I follow that she hit 500 followers, and now today I get the above notice from WordPress that I’ve also hit that number. Add that to the fact that I also recently hit 100,000 views, that’s pretty Cool. Of…

THE COST OF BLOGGING

Well, here we are on the last day of September. Man, time flies. Only 3 more months left of 2014. Anyway, this will be my 31st post of the month. So even though I didn’t actually post every single day, this averages out to at least a post a day for the month. So mission…

100,000!

I noticed that I hit a milestone yesterday, this blog surpassed 100,000 views! As I write this I’m at 100,322 to be exact. It’s been a long, but winding, road to this destination, since October 2008 when I decided to switch from using my Myspace blog to WordPress. Originally I just used jrlemar as my…

MUGGED BY THE CITY

I meant to write about this in my BLAH BLAH BLAH post. Today is trash pickup day again, so I have to be off my side of the street from 8am-3pm. As I said, I had to go to work early today anyway, so I was long gone by 8am. But over the weekend I…

I GOT A DANG PARKING TICKET!

Today is trash-pickup/street sweeper day on my side of the street. Which means that there’s no parking allowed from 8am-3pm. I was a little late getting out the door because I was trying to read and then write my reviews for MPH #3 and SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #8 and post them before leaving for work. And…

Not So Fast(ing)

I just finished eating pizza. That in and of itself isn’t so unusual for my day off (Happy Labor Day, y’all), it just that I was trying to Fast today. Couldn’t do it. Made it to around 3:30pm, but then the hunger got too much, and I just had to eat something. It’s been a…

August 2014: A Look Back

Okay, so looking back on my blogging activities for the last month, it’s definitely a bit of a drop from July. But I posted 31 new blogs, which equals one new post a day (although technically the first post was my review of July, which probably doesn’t count, but whatever), so I’m happy with that.…

I HAD A WEIRD DREAM LAST NIGHT

I dreamt that I discovered that I had two illegitimate sons, who had each tracked me down and come to see me, in my house (actually most of the dream took place specifically in the room next to my kitchen where I have the washing machine, dryer, and refrigerator). They’re weren’t full-brothers, though, they were…
