Don’t worry because your Baby Boomer Papa has not finally flipped his wig for I do not mix chocolate milk with my beer but I do pour chocolate milk on my raisin bran cereal when I eat cereal and I like to sip on chocolate milk as I sit at my workstation like now while working on the Pittsburgh Adult and I always drink my beer straight and I just sip on chocolate milk in the morning instead of on the beer in my refrigerator to extend the life of the beer in my refrigerator and that’s the name of that tune.
Yes hello hello hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers all over the world for the blogging day has begun with the high in Pittsburgh today going up to 37 with a mix of clouds and sunshine and I still have some fun money left from the $50.00 check I got from Mr Skin/Naked News that cleared Tuesday which means after I publish this blog post and do my exercises and take my shower I’ll stroll into Little Italy for a couple of beers at Armand’s.
Not only am I in high spirits because I still have fun money in my pockets this late in the month but I’m also in high spirits because the Pittsburgh Adult is still on a roll and I thank all of you for visiting my little online girlie magazine which as of this morning is averaging 1,040 page views every day for this month so far.

Being a blogger since around 2006 when I got my MFA in fiction writing from the University of Pittsburgh has been a trip with a lot of disappointments and several little victories but the little victories have made it all worth it and the last four years when I started making a little money has certainly made being a blogger more worth it but I also needed something to do after I took early retirement and it had to be something I had a passion for and blogging allowed me to use my MFA in fiction writing because much of what I learned about writing fiction is here on this blog in dozens of posts about how to write flash fiction along with dozens of examples of flash fiction by myself and several contributors of the flash fiction story with some of the stories using explicit sex as a literary device and other stories having nothing to do with sex whatsoever…
Hail to Pitt!
“If for some reason you decide you want to be a blogger and you hope to eventually blog for money be prepared to spend several years in positioning a blog to make money. Ten years of blogging, deleting old blogs and creating new blogs is not unusual before you find the right blog. You will make a lot of mistakes. But study successful bloggers who make money, especially those successful bloggers making money in your niche and keep blogging. Don’t depend on your blog to make you a living. You don’t need that added pressure. And blog because you need to blog and not because you want to make money from a blog. Then if you ever do make money like I’m finally beginning to make money it will come as a happy surprise.”–Guy Hogan
