I’ve been blogging now for 8 years.  I admit it, I’m an addict.  I love to write and I love to share it.  I like to see my stats go up.  Like crack to me.  It doesn’t preoccupy a lot of my time because I’m a fast writer, but when I get going, I post at least once daily , at least until I get addicted to something else.  MyWifeSaysImComplicated is the latest of ten blogs.  TEN.  The reason I started this new one is that there are many things I want to write about that don’t fit into anyone of them.  How is the possible?

Here are a few of my other blogs:

Regular, Average Java Programmer


I started this blog because there seemed to be a gap in the java programming blog world.  There are so many excellent blogs for very advanced programming issues.  I use them to help me do my work, but sometimes I need something a little more basic; something for the average Joe corporate programmer.  So I started this to blog my experiences and solutions for the RAJP crowd.  I haven’t hardly published anything in years, but it is still my my popular blog by far. 50k visitors and 112k hits.  I’m sure that’s peanuts compared to most other tech blogs, but I’m proud of it.

I have an anonymous blog for bipolar stuff

It’s anonymous because I discuss personal details that I wouldn’t want the people I know about.


5143851946_e8cb2ae83f_nSeven years or so I discovered a writing form called flash fiction.  1000 words or less which tell an entire story.  I published under the tag #fridayflash.  There are
many that do this every Friday.  I haven’t done it for awhile, but I’ve written around 50 of them.  Some of them are good, and I’ve removed the really bad ones.  Look for some original illustrations as well.

The Smell Collector

This is a complete web serial.  It’s quirky and heart warming.  If you can’t read the banner, here’s what it says

“The experience of smell is the closest thing we have to intimate human contact.  A woman’s perfume, a whiff of cigarette smoke, a little bit of diesel fume, and some spearmint gum might come close to someone’s first kiss, for example.  Of course, it’s impossible to create a first kiss without the human element, but for Jim Bronson, it’s the best he can do.”


Fly By Night

5144073684_a1367e1297_nI wrote 50k words of a web novel and then got stuck.  I know how I want it to end, but I just can’t connect the dots…yet.  To me, it is some of my best writing and I know that one day I’ll pick up the trail again.

“Daniel is a 30-something computer programmer whose life has so far been a series of very fortunate events. His friends and family consider him to be lucky. To them, he just seems to sail through life. In fact, his nickname is “Lucky”. Well, Daniel’s luck is beginning to run out. His marriage is falling apart. His career is stalling. He can’t deal with his two children. He feels alone and depressed. Daniel is losing his way…that is, until he encounters a guide. This guide isn’t a therapist, a pastor, or a guru. In fact, Daniel’s not even sure if it is human. And soon, Daniel will be given a night job and a new direction.”

The Non-Aspiring Amateur

“I have a degree in music education.  I love to sing, play piano, teach, write, lead music in church, direct choirs, act, play the tuba, draw, and cook.   I direct choir and lead music in church professionally.  But all the other things I do just because I love it and if I tried to go pro with any of them I’d totally lose my mind.  It would be too much.  So instead, I content myself with being the best amateur I can be.”

Bay City Runaway

This web serial comes out of my obsession of San Francisco.  It’s about a lonely drunk living in San Fran who encounters a teenage runaway girl, and their unlikely friendship.
