Me Writing About Me Writing About Me Writing
Or: I used to write a weekly column. Big piece about coins and COVID in the works, kids, but it's been stuck at the 88% done mark for a few weeks. Maybe this'll help to break the blog content logjam? (It did!) Well, I actually have drafts of several mundane blog posts gathering digital dust, … Continue reading Me Writing About Me Writing About Me Writing
I am white privilege
What is white privilege? I was born in 1973. With a bachelor's degree, I am the least educated person in my immediate family. My parents had a computer in the house before most people knew that personal computing was a thing. I was sent to "enrichment camp" five days a week the summers after third … Continue reading I am white privilege
Looking for the best Hawaii digital marketing agency
I fired a Hawaii marketing agency a couple of months ago. I was not a client. I'd been providing usability and SEO services to their clients since 2007. (Does that mean I quit?) I grew online business for a few of their big-name clients and received decent money for it. Everybody at the agency was … Continue reading Looking for the best Hawaii digital marketing agency
A Post About Droste
In which our amateur blogger plays the role of self-aggrandizing art critic. See Dan Dreifort's Droste collection here. Read on for pedantic Droste stuff.

That I lacked adequate language to describe it frustrated me more than my inability to understand it. No, … Continue reading Inadvertent Lessons from Safety Town
Why Does Time Seem to Speed Up as We Age?
Time flies when you're having fun. Time waits for no man. And sure enough, time appears to move faster as we get older. I'll preface this by saying that this is (obviously) not an original observation. Furthermore, I don't think my explanation of WHY time seemed to pass more slowly when we were younger is … Continue reading Why Does Time Seem to Speed Up as We Age?

The Fall of Uncool
Hello fall. I used to rank #1 in Google for uncool. Not so much anymore. My uncool site is wallowing WAY down the ranks. If you have a blog or a page, please toss uncoolcentral a link with "uncool" as the anchor text. I'll hook you up with a link too. Or maybe … Continue reading The Fall of Uncool
Need Help Finding a WebPosition Replacement
WebPosition was pretty great until Infospace bought them in 2009. Then came the outages. What was once a wonderfully supported suite of SEO SERP tools turned into a nightmare. The newly released Webposition is a web-only interface (vs. software you install on your computer.) Whereas you used to pay a few hundred bucks to own … Continue reading Need Help Finding a WebPosition Replacement
