Bloggin' Be My Life
The Hobo Philosopher
Richard Edward Noble, Richard Edward Noble
About ten years back, I discovered the blogging network and I jumped on it. I was writing for a newspaper at the time and I felt that a blog might provide me with a sort of pretend audience.
In any case, it was fun.
My blog, the Hobo Philosopher, has a little of everything.
I've serialized whole books. I've posted short stories, poems, book reviews, satire, humor, interviews and some of my newspaper articles.
I've vented with some political blogs. I've innovated with some of my personal economic and philosophical theories.
Blogging has been good for me. It has helped to keep me sane - if you call this sanity. I have fun and I get to say things that seem to have no viable place elsewhere.
Who do I talk to about my theories on the Big Bang.
Where else could I publish my "Noble Solution" for the National Debt or my "Economics of War"?
Where else could I find a home for The Hobo Philosopher's understanding of world banking, the Federal Reserve or the mysteries of the Social Security Fund?
What about toilet seats, the dwarf problem in America, excess cleavage, and the ridiculousness of sex?
I even wrote about nothing in this book. Most people have very little to say about nothing. But to me nothing is important ... and I mean that.
So in "Blogging Be My Life" there is a little something to suit everybody's tastes.
It's a little esoteric, a little eclectic, a little erogenous, somewhat analytic, occasionally academic, often satirical, hopefully engaging, momentarily enlightening, but at bottom always entertaining.
If you are considering purchasing this book, please do.
I need the money.
