My Mother Quilts

One of my mother's quiltsMy Mother is an anomaly. She makes beautiful quilts by hand — pre-machine style.

She’s not unusual because she quilts… or crochets… Not because she embroidered bluebirds of happiness on my pillowcases when I was a child — and a red heart on my undershirt for Valentine’s Day.

Not because she would celebrate every holiday in grand style…even the “smaller” holidays like George Washington’s Birthday (a holiday most people ignored then and lump into the generic “president’s day” now).

It’s the WAY she does things that makes her unique. Continue reading

Computer Repair and Website Development Services Article

Steve was featured in the Business and Technology section of the Danville Advocate Messenger on July 2nd. It was a great article overall!

Danville Kentucky Computer Repair and Web Development Services Announcement

Of course I was listed as being “from” Casey County, while he was listed as being a native of Danville, Kentucky — born and bred.

Yes, I now live in Casey County, Kentucky on my little farm in my little cabin, but that was by choice, not by birth. Since I graduated from Danville High School too, and was also born in the local hospital (Ephraim McDowell), the same as Steve — he gave me crap about being a foreigner. Oh well. At least it amuses him. :)

The article did a great job of articulating our individual work: His work with computer repair services in Central Kentucky and my work developing web content and my copywriting services for clients nationwide. It also covered our mutual work in custom website development and Internet marketing/SEO services which is available to individuals and businesses in our local, central Kentucky region as well as our collaborative work with businesses on each coast and scattered in all states and areas in between.

Thank you, Stephanie Mojica. You did a great job!

Geek Stuff: His, Mine, and Ours

So, WickedBlog has been a little quiet over the past month as we made the decision to find, secure, furnish, and equip this brick and mortar office space. After years of being mobile and using only a home office, I’ll now be doing some of my work in a traditional office setting with Steve.(Talk about a change of pace!)

Steve has been working on computer hardware, programming, and running home and small business networks for over 30 years. He’s been doing professional videography since 2004 and uses those skills to help clients provide streaming video and live event feeds for their online audiences.

As my regular readers probably already know, I’ve been a tech-enamored independent small business marketing consultant and web content writer since 1999. My business, WickedWriter.com began in Dunnville, Kentucky (Casey County) and has served clients in 28 states across the United States and international clients in Asia, Canada, Spain, Bermuda, and the UK.

Popping A Pill Seems Valid

Is there a pill for apathy - to CAUSE it, not to prevent it?Ok, I’m not going to go into details — for the same reason I didn’t BLAST a hole in my blog about this a couple months ago — but just let me say this: The education system’s definition of “journalistic excellence” is an oxymoron.

A news article this morning in a local paper made me want to give up my entire belief system about mood-altering drugs and just go get a script for something that would dull the senses and make me not give a hang about the state of the union, the political situation, the education debacle, and the inordinate amount of stupidity and apathy I see around me every day.

I know, I know, what a “superior” statement to make, right? Well, no… not really. Continue reading

Big Creativity: Writers in Small Spaces

Creative Space for WritersI just adore this concept for getting a full library into a small space. This space, specifically, is a writer’s nook. Designed by Travis Price Architects, It offers an open floorplan for the creative process, good natural light and access to all the writer’s favorite books (without having them too close, or too tempting when kicking the can about writing that next chapter).

All the inspiration, none of the temptation. It’s almost like a “thought bubble” of books above the writer’s head. I love it. Simply awesome!
