I’ve been feeling reflective lately and, I thought it might be fun to select a subscriber at random and get to know them a little better, and – by extension – let you get to know them.  So, please enjoy my interview here with, um, “$exxyShoozCheapPh@rmacy”. First off, I just want you to know how […]

Introducing: THE JAFEES!

May 13, 2013

Would A Blog By Any Other Name…?

February 10, 2013


Today’s Weekly Question of the Week comes from a short comment exchange the other day with Becca over at 25 To Fly. I was saying how I’ve come to hate the term “blog” for a number of reasons. Including? It sounds disgusting.   “You’ve got a lot of blog in here, that’s why the sink keeps […]

Please Hire You To Be The Byronic Man?

October 2, 2012


As many of you may know, my wife and I will be having a baby soon.  Very soon.  Now, I’m planning to simply run older posts – especially older posts that basically no one who didn’t have the same last name as me saw – a couple days a week for the first little while, […]

You’ll Pauperism This Interview, And That’s No Brussels!

May 23, 2012


I’ve been feeling reflective lately as I close in on a note-worthy number for subscribers here, leaving me thinking about the evolution and state of the Byronic Man as a site, and wanting to find ways to show my appreciation.  As part of contemplating this little community, I thought it might be fun to select […]

May 17, 2012


Life in the Boomer Lane is one of those sites that’s particularly impressive for the window it gives in to a specific life experience.  The baby-boomers have never been, shall we say, shy about talking about their experiences as a generation, but Renee at Life in the Boomer Lane gives a really clear, witty account […]

A Letter To The Person Who “Un-followed” Me

May 1, 2012


So, I see you decided to unfollow me.  Well, that is certainly your right.  I’m sorry to see you go, but I understand.  Perhaps my blog wasn’t your style.  Perhaps I’m just not your cup of tea.  Perhaps I inadvertently offended you somehow, though I sure hope not.  Perhaps you just wanted to, in the […]

Hey, BrainRants, Let’s Play 20 Questions!

January 19, 2012


Today’s edition of 20 Questions features the popular and prolific Brainrants.  If you’re unfamiliar with Brainrants, I think it’d be safe to describe his style as “blunt.”  He posts something every day (which I think is rude, making me feel bad about myself like that) on a huge range of subjects – from food to […]

Rebel With A Versatile Cause

October 2, 2011


A couple of bloggers have been kind enough to name me for the Versatile Blogger award.  (That’s why I’ve been in absentia for a few days now – I was at the awards ceremony in Copenhagen.  Well, I assumed there was an awards ceremony, and that it was in Copenhagen, but couldn’t seem to find […]

My Favorite Google Searches

September 8, 2011


As anyone who composes a blog discovers, one of the little joys is seeing the Google searches that lead people to your site.  Sometimes it’s just kind of nice (“Wow, they looked specifically for me!”), sometimes it’s illuminating (“Wow, a lot of people want pictures of balloons”), sometimes it makes you shake your head (“Wow, […]
