It may not officially be summer in Pittsburgh yet but it sure feels like summer. Today will be mostly sunny with a high around 85.
Hello hello hello, all my fans who live all over the world! The Old Soldier is reporting for duty.
How’s everyone doing?
I’m still very happy with the new magazine layout and I hope you like it, too. I think the new layout is more reader friendly.
Behind The Scenes
I usually update the front page first thing in the morning, changing several of the featured posts all at the same time; but that’s gotten old. So, now I just take my time changing a post here and there throughout the day. The slower pace makes for a more enjoyable blogging experience for yours truly. You know, I am retired and the slower pace is more laid back. I’m also an old hippie even though I shave my face and head around once every ten days.
But I digress…
My stats page tells me that 80% of the visitors to this blog are first-time visitors. So, I can be a little more laid back about up dating the front page; 80% of my visitors are seeing the front page for the first time. And the 20% of you who are return visitors can find great stuff to read either by scanning the front page to see what you’ve missed or you can scan the Categories section for all kinds of good stuff to read. There are now around 1,550 posts on this blog.
And don’t forget, for those of you who are feeling generous, there is a book and subscriptions to Mr. Skin and Naked News. All three help to pay the bills of this magazine and to keep me in business.
Well, that’s it for right now. And I thank you for your continued support.
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
Hail to Pitt!
