back daily


BACK DAILY

Okay, I THINK, and let me repeat that just in case anyone misheard for their own benefit and then later I’d have to hear whining and caterwauling, I THINK I’m pretty sure I’m going back to the every weekday format.  Yes, it was a great relief to not have to pull a not so fresh idea out of my ass every day.  I was greatly relieved when that was no longer an issue.  So allow me to explain what happened to change my mind.  It was really simple.  Yesterday I went to start writing the next weekly article and I blanked out.  Instead of starting to write a long introductory segment, I could barely get a full article of 500 words ( the average length of the once weekly being 2k words ).  And it wasn’t like it was a subject I had issues with.  It was another angle on the attack against living on or near farmland ( I already wrote the damn thing so you’ll probably read it tomorrow since there is no need to waste it ).  I should have been able to get a damn book length treatise out of that subject.

*

So, I don’t know if it is just the many years of short articles that I’m used to, or more likely perhaps since I’ve covered almost every conceivable subject I’m a bit bored and don’t want to stretch out writing about too familiar items.  Perhaps a bit of both.  I suppose if the daily habit gets me too stressed again I’ll just do a several part series on one subject to give me a rest from the “daily article idea blues”.  If any of you have a good idea for a 5k booklet, like the last time a minion gave me the subject for the “6 months prep and rat race escape”, that would also give me a rest from time to time ( I’m under impressed with my last booklet on the weapons devolution subject and likely will never finish it unless I get desperate, and then likely give it away as a free book ).  Also, don’t be alarmed if I’m only averaging 400 words per article rather than the 500 I’ve been doing for years.  In my busy schedule, 20 minutes writing verses 30 can sometimes make a huge difference.

The Woodpile Report will cease publishing after another issue or two, according to ‘Ol Remus.  I can’t believe he hung in there so long, for so little reward.  I’ve always been very impressed with his efforts and will be sad to see him go, but like Seinfeld, it’s better to go out at the top rather than dragging things on to where product suffers ( HEY!  No comments from the Peanut Gallery about this blog ).

    1. How about, "I am moved to tears and words fail to describe my joy and eternal happiness"?

  2. Yea! I missed you. A lot. Not quite in a missing in action butt love sorry of way.... More of a "I miss your amazing hair rubbing on my cheek during a man hug sorry of way."

  3. Some article ideas:

    Ebola contagion from self important people who think their poo doesn't stink. If health care workers won't do the right thing, how can you expect the average Joe to know what to do.

    How to sharpen flag poles and hide in closets for defense during a gun battle (did you catch this story during the Ottawa shooting)

    Sure signs of the coming apocalypse (tongue in cheek) We need new signs now that you're done paying child support and Jack in the Box has moved into Elko. Are the wife's medical bills paid yet?

    Where to hide the TP, when family comes to visit and they don't leave.

    Hope this helps.

  4. SemperFido- It will be a sadder world without Remus to drag a little sanity into it. And he is a fan of yours. As he often quotes something pithy from you. I will miss him greatly. HEY UNC REMUS! How about an occasional update from you about the state of things after you close down the weekly effort? Otherwise, godspeed to you and be careful up in Appalachia.

    1. One of the best. But probably went a bit insane himself trying to save us cretins.

  5. Thank you for taking the time to write these posts for us to read. I've read this blog for several years and am impressed you have stuck this out for this period of time - I wouldn't have the patience for that.

    I too am sad to see Remus go - some great posts there, his opinions and links to stories 'behind the scenes' are fantastic.

    1. He sure was a heck of a lot better than those free with ads publications. But I also think that doomed him in the end. Ya gotta have a metric for the love. Even ad revenue is better than nothing but gratitude. Even so, a HUGE hat tip for being truer than the rest of us.

  6. Each word from you Lord Bison is a nugget of gold. So with 400 instead of 500 words we're still millionaires !

    1. I'm like cornflakes going from 16 ounces to 14. At first it sucks, then you don't notice.

  7. Glad your back your hairiness. Love the daily wit.

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
