This blog is just three months short of celebrating its seventh birthday. Years of knowing me and hearing my opinions and stories on this and that prompted an old friend of mine to suggest I start a blog spot.
The results of my efforts are right here, around, before, and hopefully after, this piece.
Not long after I first filed my first posting, months perhaps, not much later in the grand scheme of things, another friend of mine said something like this...
"You should start thinking about producing a Barry Smight book containing your top postings... It would make great reading while on the John."
The unnecessary imagery aside, plus the dubious props (it's made for the toilet?), I liked the idea, considered it for a few days, going so far as noting my personal fave postings to that point, but then completely forgot about the project.
Now, partly because POD (print on demand) has exploded in the interim and is more than reasonably priced considering what is being produced (a book), I swung back to the concept just yesterday while listening to a podcast on writing.
It is in the works; and now comes the real work....
