notapoet's new, old miscellaneous blog

What's in a name?

Or in the name of a category, for that matter? Not much more than whatever importance you ascribe to it. This blog, under a different title, used to be in Lists & Information. Then the powers that be decided L&I was to be included in their new interactive thingee. I didn't much like that, so I... Sign in to see full entry.

Humorous verse

Humorist Richard Armour penned the immortal words "light verse, heavy purse." It sounded like a good idea when I first read it way back in my teen years, but it also reinforced my youthful misconception that poetry always rhymed. A lot of living taught me otherwise, but never made me much of a poet,... Sign in to see full entry.

Superfluous Blog

Superfluous Blog Been dying for an excuse to use this four bit word in a blog title, and decided to just roll with it for a few minutes. It's been a struggle finding a direction for this blog since allowing readers to select the a new category home for it. By a unanimous vote my vast readership... Sign in to see full entry.

How about "Trains and Boats and Plains?"

I knew there was a song title in there somewhere. I just had to remember the correct order so I could verify the memory. The song actually hit the Billboard Pop Chart twice, with a different artist each time. Billy J. Kramer made it onto the chart first with his version, which I honestly don't...

Planes and boats and trains...

In my day I've traveled via all three, and by bus and car and foot, with the occasional assist from my good ol' right thumb on the latter. I've even had a few short hops in a whirlybird. And let's not forget the joys of the bicycle from the days of our youth. Sadly, the only one I seem to be able to... Sign in to see full entry.

From bad to worse

This time it has been four weeks since I posted here. Frankly, I'm still not sure what to do with two miscellaneous blogs in Everything Else. If I ever figure it out I'll let you know. Till then I can't seem to do any better than a little bit of nonsense every three or four weeks. In truth, I... Sign in to see full entry.

Ditto what I said last time.

Yeah, I know that it's been longer than three weeks. But when the state of your health is a step below that of an arthritic, asthmatic 15-year old dog, it's a tad difficult to concentrate on world domination. Have no fear, I'm on the upswing. I think. At least I no longer feel it just might be... Sign in to see full entry.

Phase Two is on temporary hold.

This world domination thing is pretty time consuming, and I haven't had much time to devote to it for a couple of weeks now. All the little mundane details of daily life and earning a living have gotten in my way a little. But have no fear, the plan goes back to work with a vengeance within the next...

Damn! I'm getting tired, and I still haven't written the story on the soccer game I covered for the local newspaper last night. I may be planning a takeover of Blogit as the first step to world domination, but until I'm better financed it's still neccessary to put a little bread on the table. Did I...

Welcome to “notapoet’s new, old miscellaneous blog.”

It’s not really new, of course – just “Notapoet’s Needless Lists of Unnecessary Info” retitled and shifted to Everything Else (where I already have “Sex & Violence Sells”) with a slightly different focus. I wanted to get the blog out of Lists & Information because I wanted out of that... Sign in to see full entry.

What to do, what to do? This blog, though officially discontinued in early February, still draws an occasional click and, recently, even got an appropriate comment. So I feel I need to do something with it. My reason for discontinuing a moderately successful blog was this “interactivities” thing. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Last List

The non-poet has expressed reservations about this “interactivities” thing before. He’s decided, #1 in category or not, the hell with it. Abandoning a #1 blog, even when it’s only #1 in a category with little action these days, goes against common wisdom. But notapoet doesn’t care. What he does care... Sign in to see full entry.

“Is this really a #1 blog?” the non-poet asks.

I had to tell him, “not really.” It’s only temporarily numero uno in the category and far from even cracking into the Top 100. Still, notapoet has found a certain satisfaction in using this as a medium for additional thanks to bloggers who read and respond to one or more of his blogs. Since last...

Okay, so it wasn’t the last list admits notapoet.

But it was jollyjeff’s fault. He just had to post a comment indicating that he expected to be on the next list. The non-poet hates to disappoint faithful readers, so he had to do at least one more list to please him and sam444 and SEEDLINGS, to name a few more. Well, there really weren’t any more...

The last list?

The non-poet is grateful to the thirteen who clicked on one or more blogs, and left a comment, during the month and a half that elapsed between posts to any of his blogs. As usual, he wishes to acknowledge their contributions to his ego. But, since his absences seem to be more the rule than the... Sign in to see full entry.

Double Feature List

The non-poet hasn’t done one of his lists for about a month now, and one just wouldn’t fill the bill. He was MIA for about four weeks during which a few bloggers clicked and left comments on one or more of his blogs. He would like to express his appreciation, and apologies, to each of the following... Sign in to see full entry.

The “Gee, Thanks” list

The non-poet is particularly proud of his latest list. Because of notapoet’s ISP and computer problems detailed in some of his other blogs, as well as his continuing sports writing commitments, he has done hardly any reading for at least five days. But the following dedicated and outstanding... Sign in to see full entry.

The 24 Hour List

The non-poet rarely gets to put out a list of new and discerning bloggers within 24 hours of a list of distinguished bloggers. So he was delighted to be able to take advantage of the rare opportunity to mention all of the following bloggers: katzs afzal50 Soul_Builder101 richinstore White_Elephant...
