Watch any science fiction movie or show and you will see a common thread - touch screens and tablets are pervasive. Physical keyboards are nowhere to be found. Today, most people's primary computing device is the phone in their pocket or purse, and that trend seems likely to continue and to escalate. I happily use … Continue reading How I Blog On My iPad
I have been writing #NoCamo for quite some time now. And though I primarily write for my own enjoyment and invite you to read along, I would like to ask... What would you like to read on #NoCamo? That's right. It's the opportunity for you, loyal reader, to request topics or to ask a question. … Continue reading What Should I Write?
As a blogger, I know that I at least LIKE to write. Some of it's good; some isn't. That's part of the growing as a writer, right? But the thought of putting together a book's worth of material seems daunting to say the least. I have the basic framework for a book already. I have … Continue reading Can I Write a Book?
Anybody else catch 24: Live Another Day? (How's that for the intro line to a post about tablet blogging?) I love 24. Always have. And for many reasons. But this isn't really a fan post, so let me get to the point. There was a scene early on in the series where Chloe met up … Continue reading Learning to Type Again
I won't make excuses for the haphazard frequency of posting lately. It's a reality, but I quite simply haven't taken the time to write. Well, I've written some things, but nothing ready to publish. What I thought I'd do is shake up my processes. I think, for the next few posts, I will create, edit, … Continue reading Tablet Blogging
If you are a #NoCamo reader from way back, you know that, apart from the last few weeks, I've been a little haphazard in my posting. Why? A couple of reasons... Life. It's funny that blogging is meant to document life, yet life tends to make allocating the necessary time problematic. Mood. Honestly, I just … Continue reading The Blogging Bug Bit Again
I have often referred to #NoCamo as a ministry. I feel that the life of a Christian living life and documenting various aspects of faith can be uplifting and informational. But I have also found that, while I trust that others enjoy reading what is here, I’m positive that I enjoy writing it all the … Continue reading Blogging Is a Ministry… to Yourself
Last week, I read my favorite weekly online article, How I Work. It appears every Wednesday on Lifehacker. I am truly fascinated by the tools and methods successful people use to do what they do. The article featured James Altucher, author and investor. Among the tech tools and tips he mentions, one idea really stood … Continue reading Five Ideas a Day
If you are a #NoCamo reader, you have probably noticed that I have slipped in and out of regularity with regards to posting (that sentence is very awkward, but I'm keeping it). I've been trying to determine why. I could say that it is due to schedules, or Christmas, or, well, any number of things. … Continue reading I Take Myself Too Seriously
I have been going through some of the posts here on #NoCamo and editing for relevance. This has caused me to consider issues of authenticity and transparency. Namely... when is it OK to simply delete, and when should text be crossed through? Blogging is a living medium. By that, I mean that there is no … Continue reading Blogger Etiquette – To Delete or Not To Delete?
