Neither Rain, Sleet Or Snow Shall Stop Me

I have the WordPress App on my phone so I can kind of keep up with the goings on here when I ain’t sitting on my ass with a laptop.

It can be useful and it can be a pain in the ass at times also.

It’s supposed to notify me every time one of you smart asses leaves some witty comment which theoretically would give me the opportunity to pounce back with some smartass crap of my own if warranted.

Yeah, well, sometimes that feature don’t work so good.

It appears that it has something to do with my phone and it’s ability to get a good signal or something but sometimes it works and sometimes it don’t.

I’ll be sitting here with the phone right fucking next to me and it won’t go off, even though I see a new comment has appeared in my Email.

I’ll get up to go take a piss and halfway back from the bathroom all of a sudden my phone starts going nuts and there are five or six comment notifications in a row.

It’s especially bad first thing in the morning after sitting there all night.

Ten, fifteen comment notifications.

Sometimes I forget to put it in Airplane Mode when I go to bed and it will go off a few times in the middle of the fucking night and wake my ass up.

Anyways, that is one feature of this App.

Another feature apparently, is that it keeps track of when I post something.

I got this notice yesterday,

Unlike some other folks, I don’t pre-schedule my posts.

I make the effort to try and post at least something, every single day.

Day in and day out.

Today makes 365 days in a row. One solid year.

A couple of weeks ago I had to dig in my ass pocket and pay for an upgrade to my WordPress plan because I ran out of the allocated free space they give you to post pictures and videos.

I had seen it coming for quite a while and reached out to Wirecutter for some advice about putting up a PayPal button to see about getting some donations to cover it but it turns out you have to have what they call a Business Plan to do that and that shit is expensive.

Twenty five dollars a month expensive, up front.

So I bailed on that shit and just paid for one level of Upgrade for now.

It wasn’t that bad and I had a bit of credit because my current plan hadn’t expired yet so they prorated it.

Eventually it’s going to get to the point that I will be forced to upgrade again and when that time gets here I am going to be sticking my hand out.

Just a heads up.

Right now everything is fine and there is no need for any donations.

I really don’t want to have to fuck with advertising.

I have been Blogging for fourteen years now and I do it because I enjoy it and it’s a way for me to blow off steam once in a while.

Sometimes it can be inconvenient but I always seem to manage to throw something up just so you guys that stop by here, keep stopping by here.

I have some awesome people that keep coming back over and over and I want you to know that I appreciate the shit out of that.

If you are new here or have just been lurking for a while, don’t be shy.

Jump in and sling some shit and we’ll see how thick your skin is.

In the mean time, thanks for stopping by.

I really do, appreciate it.

    • I appreciate the thought but right at the moment there really isn’t any need.
      When it starts getting to the point I am going to have to upgrade again I will post a heads up and my PayPal address well ahead of time.
      Thanks for stopping by.


  1. If you’re not getting notifications when you’re sitting next to your phone, could it be you have a plate in your head?
    That was mean I know. But being one of your pain in the ass readers, I think we should get to see how thick skinned you are.

    Peace my brother and we love you.

  2. I’ve been a regular lurker for years, don’t even remember which of the great blogs pointed me this direction. You Sir are a true inspiration and joy to listen to (and I’m not even trying to kiss your ass).
    Please keep up the awesomeness.
    Sending lots of encouragement, prayers, well-wishes, hugs, thoughts, and lollipops your direction.

  3. Phil stated “I’ll get up to go take a piss and halfway back from the bathroom…”
    I always wondered where they went as I only leave them, never take them.


  4. Good grief, has it been a year since you changed the blog name, Phil?

  5. WordPress started that limited upload shit about 5 years ago. When I first started, there were no limits, and I went over the top uploading pics, only to be way over their limit, when they decided to stop the madness.
    They are way too proud of the so-called “upgrades” for me to even consider. I had thought about deleting a bunch of old posts, to dump some pics and tunes, but there are ways around that. Fuck ’em.

  6. I hear ya bud … I’m in the same position … Unlike Wire … I’ve got none of that … Ads … Paypal … … On here … I just post my thoughts and pass on others from blogs like yours … Finances are a tough situation for me right now … But I keep workin’ on it … Despite the health issues … I hope both our situations improve soon …
