About the Author:
Hi, I’m Michael Edward Kelly and this is my blog. I’m a writer, in the sense that I like to write things. Someday I hope to be a writer in the sense that I get paid to write things. Preferably I’ll be paid enough to write those things that I won’t have to do other things to get paid anymore. Until that time, what I get paid to do is work in a bookstore. To be honest, it’s been an enjoyable career so far. There are worse things to push on people than books.
When I’m not working in the bookstore I’m probably doing things like reading, writing, watching movies and excellent television, or browsing the internet. Sometimes I get coffee in places. In the mornings I may be running.
Other corners of the web you might find me besides this blog are (in no particular order):
I also have a Tumblr called Link Feed. It’s basically just a constant stream of content that I’ve discovered on the web and find interesting enough to share.
About the Blog:
My blog is dedicated to a variety of topics. I may sometimes post original fiction, but more often what you’ll find are essays and commentary about subjects like writing, politics, religion, science, or whatever else might be of interest to me at a given point in time. Some posts are planned out in advance and deal at length with a specific idea, most others are quick and present thoughts or perspectives that I happen to find relevant at the moment.
You can find more detailed information about how I’m organizing the blog here.
There are few commenting rules here, but it is important to understand what will or won’t be acceptable when adding a comment to any post on this site.
I do not pre-moderate comments; and all manner of thoughts (supportive, critical, funny, weird, etc.) are welcome. Indeed, comments of any of these kinds are encouraged. However, I reserve the absolute right to delete or censor comments that I personally deem to be:
- abusive or hateful
- obviously off topic or blatantly spam
- offensive for no reason
- filled with excessive foul language without purpose
Yes, I am the sole moderator and I get the only vote on what is or is not allowed. It’s my blog. That’s life.
As with all WordPress.com sites, my blog uses Askimet as a spam filter. If you’ve posted a comment and it doesn’t appear immediately, it may mean that the filter gobbled it up by mistake. If you feel that this is the case, feel free to e-mail me using the contact information below. I’ll do my best to straighten it out quickly.
