I’ve had a couple of folks write to tell me that they’re trying to comment here at Folded Space but can’t. When they try, they get an internal server error. And you know what? When I try to post new pieces, I sometimes get that same internal server error. I don’t know precisely what is… Continue reading Switching servers
On July 29th of last year (2019), I proudly proclaimed that this site, Folded Space, would soon return, rising like a phoenix from the flames. Ha ha ha ha. I was wrong, obviously. Although I was well-intentioned, life got in the way. Soon after I made that announcement, Kim and I took a long vacation… Continue reading Let’s do this thing!
“You should bring back your personal blog,” my friend Tom told me last week. Tom is also the business half of Get Rich Slowly. He works on marketing and monetization. “What do you mean?” I asked. “You have a need to express yourself,” he said. “You’ve been writing more personal stuff at Get Rich Slowly,… Continue reading A phoenix from the flames
I was browsing through the archives here at Foldedspace today and I realized that I never shared my biggest news from 2017: I bought back Get Rich Slowly! Eight after I sold the site, the company that bought it from me dropped me a line. “Would you like to buy it back?” they asked. I… Continue reading Did I Mention I Re-Purchased Get Rich Slowly?
Twenty years ago today, I started blogging. I didn’t know I had started blogging, of course. Back then, “blog” wasn’t even a word. The other folks who were writing for the web — and there were plenty — called what they did “web journaling”. So did I. At first, my web journal was solely about… Continue reading Twenty Years of Blogging
Since arriving home from our cross-country RV trip at the end of June, Kim and I have both been overwhelmed by modern life. We’re overwhelmed by the busy-ness of it all: the pace, the scheduling, all of the requests for time and attention. “Why is this so tough for us?” I asked the other day.… Continue reading Learning to Live in the Here and Now
This has been quite a year for me. In 2015, I did a couple of Big Things that pushed me outside of my comfort zone. They were scary — but fun. And while my life was mostly awesome, it wasn’t perfect. (It never is, right?) I’ve struggled with my fitness, especially. By far the biggest… Continue reading My 2015 Year in Review
Long-time readers know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Despite attempts by retailers to turn the weekend into some sort of extended consumer orgy, I’m grateful that we set aside a day each year to remember the good things we have. Make no mistake — if you’re reading this, you’re among the world’s wealthy. Here’s… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!
So far, so good. Kim and I are now 52 days, 2500 miles, and $4000 into our planned year-long RV trip. We’ve made it to Page, Arizona, which sits just south of the Utah border. (Technically, our RV is currently parked a few feet into Utah, but we’re counting this as time in Arizona. Because… Continue reading An Update after Two Months on the Road in an RV
“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains…” — John Muir Whenever I conceive of some bold idea, it comes with a potent mixture of enthusiasm and fear. I’m… Continue reading Far Away Places: Announcing Our Year-Long Cross-Country RV Trip
