I don’t often do this. By ‘this’ I mean point people to someplace else.
I mean, I’m trying to build my own audience, you see. I’m nearing nearly 900 followers of this blog, and I can do the math. Based on current percentages, once I reach 1,000 followers I will have 6.73 people who regularly read my fiction. That should be enough to get me a huge book contract from fourth-rate publishing outfit. I’m talking advances in the tens of dollars. Yes, you read right; all I’ll have to pay them to get me published is about forty dollars.
Seriously, all my readers (my regular readers — about fifteen or so) should check out Wait But Why.
I should warn you . . . he writes very long, very detail posts. If you think my posts are long, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Having said that, there is one major difference: you will want to read every word of his posts. Maybe not every post, but those that interest you should be read from start to finish.
What’s interesting, you ask?
Speaking od population, how about a post (HERE) comparing death tolls of various events throughout history (near and far). That’s from 2013; more shit happened around the globe resulting in people dying since then, but it gives you a solid base to work from.
Speaking of dead people, THIS post compares famous figures from history to people currently alive and annoying the rest of us.
History . . . he writes a lot about history. The most recent one is from just a few days ago and talks about Horizontal History. Fascinating.
But, the guy (Tim Urban) also covers incredibly important stuff, like the history of Iraq from Muhammad to ISIS. Doubly Fascinating.
I could keep listing stuff I found interesting, but I be a weird dude, and experience tells me that stuff I’m interested in is not the stuff other people are interested in.
You should go see what might interest you. I’m sure you’ll find something.
Edited to Add: you got to read THIS. Trust me on this.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
