Another lovely afternoon in Pittsburgh, sunny and warm. I just came back from a nice walk down to the Pitt campus and through Schenley Plaza and back to my apartment in North Oakland humming songs by The Animals to myself and making sure I know the lyrics because if everything goes according to plan I’ll be singing karaoke at Sonny’s Tavern in Little Italy the first Sunday night of October which is not that far away.
And I just came back from Egoallstars before I started this blog post and lucky that I did. I discovered Sarah Curr doing a little skinny dipping.
So, I’m going to publish this blog post and then I’m going to assume my favorite position which is on my back on the sofa with two pillows under my weary head and I’m going to watch some silent films on YouTube on my laptop and listen to Pirates baseball on the radio. I know the Pirates aren’t going anywhere but I find listening to baseball and watching silent films very comforting and it gives me time for reflection and I like reflecting on things like blogging and how to write flash fiction for fun and profit and on karaoke as an art form or just for fun and Naked News videos and short stories and topless women and the page views of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
I’m retired and I have the time to be a full-time blogger and I don’t have to make a living from blogging, but I do want The Gazette to operate in the black. So far this year it is operating in the black but not by much. How to make the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette a more profitable enterprise keeps me up at night. I know that one way to make it a more profitable enterprise is to keep featuring Naked News videos.
There are a little more than 200 Naked News videos on this blog and you will find the link to all of them in the sidebar at the very top!
