Hey, Fred!

You’re a writer, you know how it goes. You create, create, create, and some of it’s pretty good.

I got this new idea. Actually, my wife got the idea, and I’m going along with it. Actually, I got the idea quite some time ago, and she shot it down, rediscovered the idea on her own, and, well, I’m going along with it.

Here’s the challenge: how to build a recession-proof, age-proof, forever available platform to publish your own work? How do you find independence from the 9-to-5 grind (hit it, Dolly), help the world, and enjoy life?

Enter SkippityWhistles.Wordpress.Com. It’s only parked at WordPress until I have enough content on it to launch it with its own URL, but it’s there.

See, I’m a technical writer by trade, and coming along as a technical illustrator. Really I’m a videographer… this all just gets so confusing. So, why not make videos to help people of a certain age – okay, Millennials. Yeah. I said it. – negotiate old-school technical challenges for which they are generally unprepared. Like changing a tire. Or, the premiere post on Skipp… you can see the link above, switching out a light fixture. Not world saving, but helpful.

Because, although I have all those writing titles, the one that really sticks is Dad.

So, why is there a sort of dorky PDF instead of a video? Because I’m trying out PDF formats, and haven’t quite gotten my video studio together enough to handle the quality of video I want to produce. You asked. I answered.

Will this make money? Am I quitting the job at the quarry? Will it sell copies of my books, Droppington Place and Marigold’s End? I have no answers, but this one: maybe.

Fred Flintstone would be proud.
