Hello hello hello, all my fans who live all over the world! The Old Soldier is reporting for duty.
Well, so far today the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette has gotten 344 visitors and 2,283 pageviews.
You can’t beat that with a stick!
Now I know that to the big girls and boys of blogging those numbers don’t mean shit. But they bring tears of joy to the eyes of the Old Soldier. My friends, the Old Soldier salutes you!
Karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy Saturday night was a blast. I got a chance to talk to some graduate students who were pursuing degrees in philosophy. Philosophy. When I asked them what kind of job they could get with a degree in philosophy they couldn’t tell me.
But then what kind of job did I get with my MFA in fiction writing? I could have taught undergraduates composition and fiction writing, but I didn’t want to deal with the drama. Although my MFA did prepare me very nicely for my job as the editor and publisher of Pittsburgh’s #1 girlie magazine of erotic flash fiction, nude female celebrities and the best gangbang stories on the Internet.
