Hello hello hello, all my fans who live all over the world with a special shout-out to all my fans who live in Canada and Mexico!
How’s everyone doing?
I’ve still got a head cold: stuffiness, sneezing and coughing. It’s why I decided not to go to karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy tomorrow night. But this head cold is nothing that rest and a few beers won’t cure. As a matter of fact, I just came back from Armand’s in Little Italy. I had a can of beer and a bag of peanuts and I shot the breeze with Joe (his name is actually Joe) the bartender and I watched Liberty Avenue.
It’s an overcast day in The ‘Burgh, but the high will be in the 50s; and I was glad to see that the female butt will once again be on display this spring, summer and fall in Pittsburgh. Yoga pants seemed to be the apparel of the day. Or maybe I was just looking for yoga pants (more like it).
I spent a pleasant half an hour in the bar and got a six-pack to go.
Now that I’m trying to run this blog less like a hobby and more like a business, I’ve decided to make a few editorial changes that I hope will make it easier for me to publish the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette while at the same time giving you a first-class reading experience. The changes all concern the front page.
There are now five featured posts on the front page that are rotated from the archives: one gangbang story of mine, two stories from contributors, a post on how to write flash fiction and a wild card post. The rotation of these posts use to be done haphazardly on my part. I did it whenever I felt like it. Well from now on I’ll change these posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
I’ll try to add at least one post of original content (like this one) every day. The way I have the front page set up, I can add up to three new posts of original content every day before the new posts overlap onto page two. There is no need for this to happen unless I have a lot of really good content to add.
And I’ll do a rolling change of the posts featured on the front page that are from my affiliate network: Mr. Skin/Naked News.
In this way, and in other ways, I hope to turn this blog into a business you will want to visit on a regular basis.
