On Bacon, Journalism, and Editing

Welcome back to my humble digital abode. I've been mysteriously MIA in recent weeks from both the blog and Twitter. This has a lot to do with being back in school, not to mention dealing with every day life and the day job.

I'm sorry. I really am, and I'll try to be a better author, blogger, and blog reader. Maybe I should even get into that whole commenting on blogs I read thing. I hear that works wonders for networking. :)

My first journalism class is moving along smoothly (now, anyway). The beginning was touch and go, but it looks like the professor might not be as bad as originally considered. I find that I'm actually looking forward to working on the final project (which I've already started--kinda).

In other news, bizarre and unimportant, but curious all the same...

I've recently wondered what the obsession with Bacon is. It seems like it should be the mascot for 2012. Hasn't that greasy mass of artery clogging fat been around since the *dawn of time (or at the bare minimum since people were hiking through the prairies in covered wagons--)?

I'm not a huge fan of bacon myself, but the thought of eating bacon flavored anything just makes my stomach rumble--and not in a good way. Yet, everywhere I look there is something about bacon. Equating it to money, baking with it, creating huge artistic creations around it--it's crazy. Could someone explain this to me?

As for editing... ummm... I should be doing that. I've got first round edits done and just have to finish making the corrections, but I keep putting it off. I know, I'm a bad, bad, writer. I'll be better about that too.

What have you been putting off recently that you should be doing? What are your thoughts on bacon?


* Now, in all fairness I didn't actually research when bacon was invented, so no snarling or biting at my inaccurate timeline. :)


  1. Mmmmmmmmmmm bacon. Yum.

    As for the editing ... I got round 1 done. Now I'm struggling w/ round 2. I feel your pain.
    Welcome back to your humble digital abode.

  2. Bacon flavored chocolate. I haven't tried it yet, and I love both foods nearly equally. I think, in this case though, two rights make a wrong.

  3. Congrats on getting round one done! I had a few stumbles on round two, but they're finally finished. I'm now in the final stretch before publication in mid-July. Thanks for the warm Welcome Back. :)
