Welcome to my new blog, which is named after me. That makes it my eponymous blog. I tried to come up with something a little snazzier, but the best I could do was The Von Doviak Attack, which almost immediately seemed like a bad idea. See, I’m told it’s all about branding and establishing a presence and building an audience and maximizing my earning potential and making the pie higher and possibly even tweeting, although I’m very reluctant to go there. My previous blog was called Moonshine Mountain and it served me well, but it was tied into my earlier project Hick Flicks and for the past couple of years it’s been collecting dust along with the very occasional links I’d post there. So I’m hoping this will be a repository for actual word-writing about all manner of pop culture flotsam and jetsam, or at least the stuff I can’t get paid to write about elsewhere. (By the way, does anyone know the difference between flotsam and jetsam? I just found out, and it’s very interesting. I’ll reveal the answer here tomorrow.)
Anyway, this is very much a work in progress – I’m not even sure if I’ll stick with this template, but eventually I’ll be adding all the sidebar links and doodads that make a blog feel homey. Drop by anytime!
