Angels Can’t Swim – a novella

I don't often read books from first time authors who are not represented by a publishing company; however, lately I have found that many of these books - while a bit more roughly edited - are like finding diamonds in the rough. Angels Can't Swim is a perfect example! There are three girls, competitive swimmers, …

Nobody Gives a Damn How Many Followers You’ve Got

I loved this. In a world where my blogging subject matter should be enjoyable, worrying about stats can take all of the joy out of it. I also have personally met some “professional bloggers/Instagram queens and I’m not sure I want what they are selling – at all. I’d rather be good, write well and like what I’m doing than be the most popular blog in town. Oh wait, this always has been my motto. It’s always about quality over quantity/individuality over group-think. It’s just how I roll.

The Art of Blogging

Apparently it’s easy to get zillions of subscribers to your blog – Just follow a few simple steps, work hard, and write good stuff.

I know this, because there are a ton of pro-blogging sites which are eager to dispense the wisdom of their own success whilst making you feel inferior for having less than 20,000 subscribers.

Unfortunately for many of us, the promise of multiple thousands of subscribers is unrealistic no matter how hard we try – sometimes because we work in less popular niches, sometimes because we just don’t have the available time, and sometimes because we just don’t have that magic mix of talent and luck.

Ultimately this leads to frequent disappointment among bloggers.

But the bitter truth is that blogging is not a hobby or a profession for those without perseverance.

To End a Presidency: The Power of Impeachment

Like a true political junkie, I devoured Laurence Tribe's books when I was at University. God Save This Honorable Court still is one of my favorite go-to books when I am castigating the current Supreme Court. Tribe's knowledge on the US Constitution is without rival and it is exactly for that reason that I wanted …
