Yeah? I’ll tell you where you can go…

The Boeskool: Cultural essays from what the author describes as a Christian perspective.
The Body’s Heated Speech: I’m not big on poetry, but my friend Brian Dean Powers knocks out some powerful stuff.
Sleeping on the Diagonal: Humorously random ruminations on single life.
The Crappy Childhood Fairy: This interesting and well-written blog walks a line between creative memoir & academic analysis.
Shenandoah BreakdownThis dude can write.
Dumb Runner: Mark Remy’s excellent tongue-in-cheek running commentary.
Undercrust: Written by me–under the pseudonym Charley Rider–for over two years. Lots of content, but my best stuff from this period is in my book (which you should read).

  1. Thank you for sharing this self analysis. It says a lot about who you are, what you’ve gone through and what you want from others.There will always be insensitive persons out there, but it’s their loss to be so inconsiderate. We’ve both come to know you better, to appreciate and enjoy you for your individuality, your honesty, and courage. We love your writing.

  4. Hi Jeff. I happened to find your blog by Discover and your Follow post. I agree. I have Unfollowed a few bloggers. Why put that negativity in my face? There’s enough of that in the world. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

  7. Hi Jeff
    I have come to your blog via the discover thread and couldn’t agree more with your opinions on ‘follow’. I know Facebook is a great base for networking, but I left it over a yr ago due to hate and continuously seeing posts that were hurtful or upsetting in some way. It’s refreshing to hear someone with genuine beliefs in a ‘follow for a follow’ world. I look forward to reading more of your blog.
