“If I haven’t any talent for writing books or newspaper articles, well, then I can always write for myself.”
Status Report: The Profound Bartender
Here at the Profound Bartender, we don’t have a mission statement. There is a single criteria, my brother said, “I want to write”. So, here it is.
This is a secondary blog for both of us. The heavy lifting goes into our primary. Without a definition, the PB blog has range and this is very good. The topics are all over the place and show that this is a place for us to get our fingers on the keyboard.
We both seem to shrug at getting anyone to read this stuff. We don’t tag at all and when we do we don’t follow the rules. While Google has found us, we leave zero hints for a search engine to find our work. Blatant disregard to the common motivation to make a blog kind of appeals to me.
I’m loving the surprises. I wrote a short story that began with the let there be light stuff and ended with colonizing the planets. Thinking that no one would dare write this kind of thing, blasphemy and all that, I tagged it “Christian fantasy”. Then curious, I searched the two-word combination and found that there is an entire genre in Christian fantasy! Who knew?
2018 was a pretty good year. We averaged very well, posting about every other day. The “wanting to write” box was checked.
2019 finds our interest waning, maybe? The number of posting average is way down from the prior year. And that is okay, I’d guess that our thoughts are elsewhere.
Finally, if you do happen to read this site; I hope that you enjoy it!
One thought on “Status Report: The Profound Bartender”
I love doing this! For all the reasons you mentioned, including as especially the “ not following the rules” part. I write stuff here that I wouldn’t write anywhere else. I occasionally get bogged down with work, but my goal is an essay a week, that’s 52 a year, just for fun and frolic and a nice little trail of profound bits, the crumbs of life.
Best of all, I get to do it with my brother. Talented, caring, witty, experienced, as good a man and sibling as I could ever have hoped for.
Let’s keep the keys a’ tappin’…b/c you’re a man…among men.
