Tips for writers and musing about writing and life

Another year comes to a close — how was 2007 for you?


This year has been a series of tremendous ups and downs, mostly ups, for our family. I won’t get into the details.

On the one hand, it’s been nice to find a way I can make some legitimate money online with the blogs I do — and I’ve seen some steady growth in the small amounts of revenue I’m getting from affiliate marketing websites.

On the other hand, it’s not an easy or lucrative operation yet.

But the really good news is that my wonderful wife, St. Shirley the Encourager (I call her St. Shirl for short), and I are in good health. I thank God daily for the wonderful joy of being madly in love with that woman for more than 40 years now. Frankly, I don’t know how she’s put up with me all those years — but every marriage has its unique dynamics, I guess.

Shirley and I and our entire family hope that 2007 was all you wanted it to be, and that 2008 will be even better for you, for all of us. Happy New Year!
