Herb’s blog, Herbdate 16315-004:
Just a note of explanation now that i have sent out a mail to you all about this blog. I have a wide variety of friends from a wider variety of ideologies. What this means to you, gentle reader (don’t ya love Miss Manners?), is that some of you will wonder why there isn’t more church stuff, or political stuff, or writing stuff, or funny/weird stuff and while you are wondering about that, the other people will wonder exactly the opposite, e.g., why so much church or politics, or who cares about the difference between a trochee and an iambus and if he’s such a big-time, fancy-schmancy writer, why does he use ridiculously long, yea, even run on, sentences?
One of the other cool thing about these guys (blogdrive.com) is that you can have more than one blog under the same account, so, for example, Carter could do one on nothing but the 2nd amendment and one on beer and one on the Cavalry or just do one that has stuff about all three from time to time.
Oh, and i MUST clarify one other thing. I really am not a big-time writer. I have had a couple of very minor pieces printed in a vanity press. This is where this exercise is supposed to come in handy. I get to practice on my friends and relatives and any total stranger that happens to stroll by.
Anyway, thanks again to all of you for being patient and if you have any questions or something you really want to know about, let me know.
