To Pay or Not to Pay



I’ve been following a a twitter dialogue concerning my friend, godless_mom. Yes, I consider her a friend and I think it’s mutual. I’m a conservative, she’s far, far from me, but it’s interesting that we agree on many things. The dialogue she’s been having with some people online is about her blog posts, which you may view here. She asks for support, via Patreon because, and I know this, writing a blog takes time, and time is money. Depending on the post, it may take several hours to research, then compose. I’ve been there. posts like this one? Well, not much research and kind of off-the-top-of-my-head.

Has Interest in Atheism Declined?



I’ve received a few emails (okay, very few) from readers asking me why I don’t seem to be doing much if any writing concerning atheism. The reason is simple: there’s really not much to write about. I mean, I can replay the same old tropes, in their current form based on what I happen to read about, but there’s really nothing, iin my mind, noteworthy of any commentary. Times have changed where, just a few years ago, there was plenty to write about, or produce a podcast. Today, people, most, seem to have moved on to their lives, as they should.

Stay Tuned



Sorry for the deficit in blogging, I’m out of the country. I’ll try to do better of the next couple of weeks. It’;s tough though because we’re here for the Women’s World Cup – yes in France – and we’re out and about all the time when we’re not at a match. Of course we’re mainly following the American team, which every few days places us on a train for one place to another. As I write now, we’re in Paris, where the U.S. Women, on Sunday, defeated Chile. Really good game.

Do I Actually Need Another Site to Hold Debates/Discussions?




Gretchen, over at SkepticReview wants me to create an account over at something called “”. It’s a place, to allow  people want to have a debate or discussion, can talk to each other, in a blog post format ( actually, a “letter” to the person you’re responding to on a particular topic. It’s a great idea, and Ive been thinking about creating an account there. Then, I thought differently. My thought is how this would, in any way, drive traffic to this blog. It may, but I need more information.

Blogging. Just Because I Can



Blogging, for me is an interesting hobby. I think for many of us that remain out here in the blogosphere, it’s become a way for us to express ourselves, simply, without all of the overhead that is required for other forms of media. Think about it, right now, I’m typing this on an old iPad, it requires nothing else than my WordPress subscription; I don’t require a video camera, or a microphone or even a special place to set down my thoughts. I can do this in my home office, in the living room, or as I am now, sitting outside on my patio, on a perfect morning, drinking coffee.
