Gosh it’s cold. I can’t recall a colder winter. Winter is for reading and writing. And so I have been.
Things are super busy over at Doubtful News. We can hardly keep up with the stories. Honestly, it’s wearing me down so I may have to ease up a bit. I’m behind on my Sounds Sciencey piece for January because I’ve been doing news stories, some podcast interviews and working on a manuscript. Also, been reading up on ghost hunting history. I’ll have lots more on that in the future. LOTS more.
I’ve redesigned the website. It’s uncomfortably self-promotional. But that’s the way things go; everything is a brand, even people.
I’ve quit blogging for Huffington Post. They took my last post and removed 75% of the links (or more) because it didn’t fit their style. Those links were there for reference. The piece made little impact without the references as examples. So, I reproduced it here with all accoutrements, including embedded pictures and video. Much better. I’m sort of known for being independent and I consider the Huff Po thing to be a worthwhile try but not a good fit for me.
Also, I did a piece on the Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty show for Paranormal Pop Culture – a new audience!
And, just up, is a chat between Blake Smith and I on Monster Talk regarding the array of Bigfoot bodies supposedly lying around. (There’s a pun in there for ya!) “You Won’t Believe What These Skeptics Have to Say About Bigfoot”.
Weather permitting, I’ll be back at a familiar place this Saturday, the PA Nonbelievers meeting in York, talking about skepticism.
I have my first Keynote speaking spot in March at the Central NJ Mensa Snowball meeting. That will be on “Sounds Sciencey”
I don’t know yet what I’m going to be doing but I will be at RavenCon, April 2014, in Richmond, VA (or close to it) (Also with Bob Blaskiewicz.)
And I’m tapped to do a talk on the World of Weird News at Balticon on Memorial Day weekend in May 2014, Hunt Valley MD.
