if all else fails…

if all else fails LogoIf you’re on this page it probably means you’re curious what this blog is about. If you find out, please tell me as I would also love to know.

See, I started this site because I read somewhere writers should have a blog. I’ve since learned that’s absolute hokum, but I found I kinda like revealing my innermost thought to complete strangers on the interwebs, so here I am still typing along.

What’s with the hammers?

What’s with the interrogation? Sheesh! A person can’t even have a fetish…erm…hobby any more these days without everyone judging you. Where’s the acceptance? Where’s the respect for my beliefs and…

Not buying it, are you? Oh, well. It was worth a shot.

The truth is, when I signed up for this blog, WordPress told me it must have a title. Many moons ago, in the era of DOS and Windows 3.1, I had a 5-inch floppy disc (honk if you know what I’m talking about) with a program that printed out random quotes on the screen. Clearly the programmer who wrote that little piece of software had dealt with his fair share of recalcitrant computers, as he included the instructions for percussive maintenance as one of the quotes.

As I pondered a title for my blog, if all else fails…use a hammer popped into my head, and the rest is history.

Can I be honest for a moment? I don’t actually like hammers. Not more than any other tool, I mean. But if it works, it works.

But what do I write about?

Still on that? And I was trying so hard to distract you.

I write about anything and everything that happens to strike my fancy. That usually involves books or Doctor Who. As I’m trying to become a writer I also write about that, and you can probably expect posts on my newest interest of web development as well. I’m also dad to a toddler, so I’ll share some of my adventures in fatherhood. From time to time I might inflict some of my fiction on you…I apologise in advance…and really anything else I find interesting, amusing or noteworthy. And puppets. I love puppets. (That’s puppets with a ‘t’. Not puppies. Though I love puppies too.)

Do you like puppets (or puppies)? Or hammers? Or Doctor Who? Or maybe you want to see how I blunder through parenthood. Then click that Follow button right now. And if you don’t like these things, click that button anyway. I’ll convert you in no time. Come on in and be part of the club. All the cool kids hang out here (or didn’t you hear that geeks are the cool kids nowadays?) and we’d love for you to join.

Please take a look at the policies at the bottom of the screen so you know the ground rules, and have fun.

Watch out for flying hammers!

P.S. I also have another site where I post amateur photography. It’s called For the birds (mostly) because…actually I have no idea why I called it that…

      1. Hmm. You should perhaps read my comments policy 😀

        But seriously, I do set a very clear boundary there. I’ve broken my own rule once or twice in the past, but this blog is my space, not part of my job.

    1. Thank you very much. I’ve never seen myself as inspiring, so this award is rather inspiring 😉 I’ve nothing against awards. I’ve said in the past they make me feel all warm and fuzzy. I’m just terrible at them, but I’ve responded in my own way. Thanks again.
