Quarterly (Re)View

      Comments Off on Quarterly (Re)View

I was gadding about on my blog this morning, updating pages and rethinking widgetry, and in the process, I was reflecting on what this blog is about (if, indeed, it is really *about* anything at all – I don’t have a themed blog, after all) and I got curious:  Are there consistencies in the material found here over time?

(I realize that this question is probably of little interest to anyone besides me, so feel free to stop reading now.  I won’t be offended.)

I’m not sure, really.

In a way, I know the answer is NO, because (1) I just write whatever I feel like writing {key word:  feel}, and (2) One of the original ‘features‘ on this blog was discontinued after the first year; both reasons impact(ed) and shift(ed) the content to a rather significant extent.

Yet, subjectively speaking (perspectively and topically), the answer is YES.  (Or at least I think it is.)  Because…


Because why?

Hmmm…  Well I still write about my husband.  And sex.  And I publish bad poetry.  And…  Other…  Stuff…

Ergh.  That’s not very definitive, is it?


So I’ve decided to do a self-check of sorts, in that I’m going to review – on a quarterly basis – a few of the things I’ve written and see if there are definitive consistencies over time.  Thus, the first installment of my Quarterly (Re)View, so named because I am basing my ‘whatsit?’ (that’s a highly technical term, meaning:  1/4 to 1/3 representative quarterly sample, no less than 5 and no greater than 10 within the publication dates) on what posts get viewed.  Because, quantifiable evidence and non-bias and seeking common threads and all that jazz.

Blah blah blah.

Yes, I am a geek.


QUARTERLY (RE)VIEW:  January 1 – March 31, 2015
{Otherwise known as What the hell are you writing about anyway, Feve?}

I posted an answer to a question, posed by a good friend via email, that went into detail about the type(s) of attention I enjoy/permit/demand when it comes to my breasts.  {I’ve done something similar in the past, on another topic.  People seem to gravitate to these posts.  Note to self.}

I wrote about the things I have, which was sort of a reflection piece, just prior to my 500th post.  {With pictures!}  Apparently one of the things I have – in spades – is Daddy Issues.  {With music!}  They came out of hiding and sucker punched me (bastards!) during a particularly trying time at the beginning of the year.

I posted a how-to about saving blog content for import or export when blogspot was on their censorship rampage.  {If you find the how-to posts helpful, and there’s some bloggy thing you’d like to see more information about, let me know.  I keep meaning to post one about widgets.}

I got possessive.  (Damn do I miss him when we’re apart.  I hate that there are so many miles between us.)  Remembering that interlude makes me wet.  *shiver*

I got celebratory.  (Birthdays were somewhat of a theme this quarter, I think.)

I got carnal.  *sigh*

And I got real.  Because, issues.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Sooo…  Sex, reflections, musings (partly about sex), mourning, bloggy schtuff, personal stuff, sex(y) stuff, celebratory stuff, and more sex…

Hmmm.  Theme, much?


If you’re still reading (I don’t blame you if you’re not – this is a level of self-absorption that would leave me screaming for the hills), and you read regularly, I wonder if you see any common threads in the posts you’ve read recently?

I’m not a total narcissist, I promise.  I’m just in Analytical Mode.


Please and thank you!

    I have found the tech tips very useful. Sometimes Google is my friend and sometimes it feels more like a duplicitous back-stabber. It always seems like there is a lot of bad info out there. You don’t know who to trust. Isn’t that the story of life.

    A gay person with an identical twin could be a total narcissist. If they were Siamese twins would that make it masturbation?

    Some questions never seem to get answered.

      And if it wasn’t for you, some questions would never get *asked*, eh? 😛

      I had to figure out a lot of the Dashboard stuff on my own; I didn’t find much helpful information from other sources, including WP’s so-called ‘support’. Thus, the tech tips posts were born. Sharing the love and all that.

    I think that you are an observer of yourself and others in this life. Sometimes you do it from some secret hill of yours…sometimes it’s from your bed and sometimes it’s straight out of your cerebral cortex. I like it a lot because you are you. xo, J
