This website is misleading!

I built my website to help me reach my audience — for speaking, coaching, and writing. I hope the site conveys that.

Here’s the thing: I’m not doing that any more.

I have surrendered wanting to be a professional speaker. Having valuable information to share is absolutely no assurance of success.

I am not pursuing coaching clients, and for today, would probably not take one on.

Check the date stamps on my blog, and you can see how much I’ve been writing.

So why does my website still say that stuff?

Please, leave a comment

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

One of the reasons I upgraded my website software recently was to make commenting easier. You now can comment using a Facebook login, so you no longer need to log into this site. If you prefer, or if you don't have a Facebook account, you no longer need my intervention to see your pearls in print.

I wish I'd been able to accomplish those changes much sooner than I did, but at least they're done now.

So please, please come back often to read, and, when you feel like it, react. 


A few changes here

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Hi, friends.

Just wanted to point out a few small changes to the site, underwritten by the move from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6 — just as all the hip kids (or is that the nerdy ones?) — are going from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7. (Drupal is an open-source content-management system and blogging platform.)

Rosenbaum blogs

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Unreservedly, one of the voices I respect most on issues of sustainability as it regards buildings is Marc Rosenbaum, a curious mix of wonk and Luddite. (When he announced that he'd started a blog, he assured his correspondents that he still didn't have a cell phone.)

But he does now have a blog, detailing his move to Martha's Vineyard and new housing, and how he is approaching the retrofit. These are adventures I'm eager to follow — and how I wish I could include Thriving On Low Carbon in my blog reader, but he appears not to be set up for that.

So here's the address.

Rudd Center blog discusses "FBTM"

The Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale is possibly the foremost entity for research and advocacy into the issues embedded within its name. Regular readers will know that I've been seeking to illuminate a report it released less than a month ago on the marketing of junk food to kids, strictly because I believe in their mission, and their information.

"A beautiful, glorious story..."

To be fair, when Cherrie Herrin-Michehl, a therapist in Seattle, wrote the phrase of the headline in her post about "Fat Boy Thin Man," she was speaking more about the details of my story, rather than my telling of it.

That's an important distinction: A joke, for example, can be really funny but can still be ruined by the jokester. My opinion is that "FBTM" has both, but as the author, I'd better think so, no? I hope you'll investigate for yourself, of course.
