BREAKING THE AWKWARD SILENCE

Seemed like the multi-part article about Trump would stay the lead story here forever and ever. Still, it did seem fitting that it stayed as long as it did, since the aberration of Trump showed off the many fault lines of our overweight/over-medicated barely literate society. These schisms still exist and arguably always will, however I think this may have been my last article purely about politics whereas if I must continue, I will try to give a better history lesson and tend towards more awareness, self-healing, and calling a spade a spade (meant in the Greek sense, not a racial slur.) and things like that .

As It stands, it’s time to move on and away from politics and I think there are probably more important things to be discovered having lived through Trump, then COVID, and now everyone’s naïve hurry to return to so called “normal”. Myself, I want to talk more about world peace, the trivial nature of capitalism unraveling, the everyday occurrence of opening a big box of plastic, and the importance of good customer service as a branding platform.

this is getting personal

Some might say, I am in a personal crisis. At least it seems that my personal life’s issues and decisions might make better reading than much of the rest that I’m usually prone to publishing.

However, I’m not quite ready to post much about my personal life, since I feel it needs to be separated from my political and other commentary posts. This blog, is after all, something that potential employers might just happen to see.

So right now, I’m trying to figure out whether to go with a WP multi-site or just start yet another blog. (I would be happy to hear a recommend of a WP guru if anyone knows one.) Until this is decided and made so, I’m not changing the format of this blog. But in time, this is about to get much more personal.

You did what!? Where have all of the interrobangs gone!?

Lol_interrobangThe interrobang combines the functions of the question mark and the exclamation mark.

It was invented in 1962 by Martin K. Speckter, a journalist turned advertising executive, who disliked the ugliness of using multiple punctuation marks at the end of a sentence.

With so many things happening everyday that seem both questionable and alarming, it should only be a matter of time before the interrobang becomes a common part of our omnipresent electronic blather.

Since the internet has already revived the careers of previously unloved characters, such as @ and _, could the interrobang be next to be revived? SOURCE

Could the age of emojis be drawing to a close? One could only hope.
