I Am Good, Helpful, and Dull

posted by Jason Boyett

I was never a big comic books guy, but I watched a lot of “SuperFriends” as a kid and always thought Green Lantern was the coolest superhero. Not sure why. Maybe because Superman and Batman always were hogging the spotlight? […]

Our Big Honking Stuff Problem

posted by Jason Boyett

Today is Earth Day. It’s been around, in an official capacity, since the late 60s. The earliest I can recall hearing about it is during my freshman year in high school, which was 1988. We talked it up a lot […]

Oops, Annihilation Via Asteroid IS a Possibility

posted by Jason Boyett

Good Writing: Help Remedies, Inc.

posted by Jason Boyett

I stumbled upon a site this morning that offers a great example of the vital role copywriting can play in the creation and marketing of a certain brand. Help Remedies is a funky upstart health products company. That’s a weird […]

Where Can I Find Freelance Writing Jobs?

posted by Jason Boyett

Returning to the mailbag question from Wednesday: My quick answer to the question of where to find freelance writing jobs is everywhere. And I mean that. Our is a world of information and content. Despite the proliferation of videos and […]

Proofreaders for President

posted by Jason Boyett

Just a quick note: If you’re running for president, and if you’re going to spend millions of dollars to advertise yourself, and if you’re trying to restore competency to a presidency and party that has come to be known as […]

How Do I Become a Freelance Writer?

Early Morning, April Four

posted by Jason Boyett

My daughter, Ellie, was born eight years ago today, on April 4, 2000. My wife went into labor around 5 a.m. that morning, and on the way to the hospital, guess what song kept running through my head? It was […]

Bye-Bye Mugabe

posted by Jason Boyett

Good news out of Zimbabwe. It looks like President Robert Mugabe is at least conceding that he didn’t win the recent election. I won’t pretend to know much about African politics — in fact, I know very little — but […]

White People Really Like Cash

posted by Jason Boyett

Back in mid-February, I linked to a great new blog called “Stuff White People Like.” It wasn’t an especially ground-breaking discovery on my part, because apparently everyone linked to the site around that same time and the blog got huge, […]
