The Old Soldier has a few bits and pieces for you on this 27 May 2014.
Hello hello hello, my brother and sister readers and writers of erotic flash fiction. This is the Old Soldier reporting for duty. The Memorial Weekend is over and a new work week has begun. Of course, the Old Soldier tries to blog every day in an effort to unlock more page views.
I’ve gotten smarter about SEO and page ranking and I’ve settled on Twitter as my social media of choice for promoting the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction. And anytime I meet someone with knowledge of computers and the Internet, I’m not too proud to chat the person up for any pointers that will make me a better webmaster.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction is following in the footsteps of a long line of magazines that use to be called “girlie” magazines. Girlie magazines have been around since 1900 according to Google. The magazines covered different topics and featured photos of women in different stages of undress. All of the magazines were aimed at male readers. This is where I think the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction is unique. My humble erotic magazine (published by a man) is aimed at women, too. Most of my contributors of erotic flash fiction are women.
After all, it is 27 May 2014. The times they are a changin’.
I hope to be back at karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy this Saturday night. It depends on whether or not I get my veterans pension Friday. I carry business cards that promote the magazine in my wallet; but handing out the cards indiscriminately doesn’t work. The cards are liable to end up on the floor or in the trash. You don’t want a person to feel that he or she is being hustled. I’ve even thought of going up to sing my song and announcing, “If anyone would like to check out my blog I can give you my business card after the song.”
But then the DJ may not appreciate it. Still, it’s a thought. I’ve a good product here in the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction. I just have to let the right people know about it.
These are a few bits and pieces for 27 May 2014.
Keep reading and keep writing that erotic flash fiction. Here are some of my influences.
