The value of writing reuse…
Every now and then I start off a blog entry with “I really don’t write often enough…”
But that’s not really true. I write a ton of stuff, it just doesn’t always end up here. The articles I write very rarely have to do with things I’ve written elsewhere. (Irony, on reflection I see that the post just prior to this touts a review I wrote elsewhere. I’m simply not paying attention. But I’ll write on as if I hadn’t noticed that.)
What I need to do is rechannel efforts, make blog entries about or completely repeating writing I’ve done for other sources – that is when it’s not against some standing prior agreement. This does seem to be a factor in blogging success – let’s see if I can remember it.
Boring yet? Let’s move on.
So with that in mind, I invite you to view a series of articles composed of my pictures from Comic Con 2011. Some of you may know of my association with the website Fanboy Planet. I produce a weekly podcast and occasionally have prose pieces that appear there. And every now and then, there’s a fun set of photos.

There are likely a few more to come.
If you’re interested, you can follow me or Fanboy Planet on Facebook, or check back here to see when I update.
Now some of you may note that there are far more women in far less clothing in these pictures than there are men.
There are two reasons for that:
1. There simply are more women in costume at comic con, and they do it so much better. It’s a sewing thing I expect.
2. I’m a guy.
