Articles

I report, therefore I write a bunch of articles for the web. Here is a depot of those articles for your reading enjoyment.

Or perhaps not. You might hate it. You wouldn’t be the first.

These get pulled into the site with a service called Authory. It’s automatic. If you’re a reporter or content guru I strongly suggest using the service. They didn’t pay me to use this or plug them. It’s just a tool I find value in.

This RSS feed only shows my twenty most recent articles. If you’re into subscribing to things, you can subscribe to have my articles delivered to your mailbox.
