What Is Art?
What is Art? Yes, I’m pretty sure a lot of people have defended entire PhD dissertations on this topic but, as I said before, André Gide wrote, “Toutes choses sont dites déjà; mais comme personne n’écoute, il faut toujours recommencer. [Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back […]
Climbing Out of the Writer’s Pit of Despair
I just read a post by Wil Wheaton, “everything under the sun is in tune” and it actually inspired me to kludge together some sort of post for my blog. I have been having a bit of trouble putting together anything for my blog. It’s supposed to be fun but it just hasn’t been for […]
I’ve finally taken the plunge and moved my blog over to my own domain: bradfonseca.com. It’s got a slightly different layout but the content is the same. With the move I’ve started to write some more and plan to write more frequently. You might want to start with my first post on the new site, […]
Woo Hoo! That worked!
After quite a bit of fiddling, I managed to get this whole set up to work. I’m now blogging from Emacs. Figure 1: Yes, I’m slowly turning into a penguin. This is obviously more complicated than just using the WordPress interface but I like being able to blog (mostly) without leaving my editor. That being […]
My 100th Post?!?

Comment on Self-Assessment: The One Question Every New Writer Wants Answered
The One Question Every New Writer Wants Answered On the last day of the quarter, I often ask students in my memoir class to write down on an anonymous slip of paper a question about writing. When I did this recently, I received a number of questions about the legal implications of writing about others, […]
I recently hit 1000 views of my blog. I guess I should be excited or maybe not. It’s not like that is such a massive number. However, for my humble blog, I think it’s significant. I don’t do very much promotion beyond the Publicize feature to alert people I know on Twitter and Facebook (oh, […]
It’s Time to Get Meta….
It’s depressing to see how much YouTube and BuzzFeed items I repost or reblog get looked at and how little anyone looks at my original material. Currently my highest number of views is 89 and that on a day I posted about an article on LinkedIn “Class of 2013: Four Things You Must Unlearn Immediately […]
