In My Backpack is an on-going project. It’s a place where I can take my writing and try to post it without a concern for perfection. (Seriously. You can go ahead and send along a critique based on some rules of grammar or whatever, but I’m looking for this site to be filled with opinions… works in progress… attempts at trying the unexpected and different... and, from what I see so far, horrible color choices for backgrounds. All sorts of stuff. Kind of a practice run in many ways. And that means while quality is important, if you take a look around and find trial and error efforts... with more than a few errors... you shouldn’t be too surprised.)

When it comes to the articles I post, I will make every effort possible not to change material once it’s there. Instead, I will limit changes to instances where perhaps a link no longer works... or I messed up the spelling or wording because editing and proofreading at times aren’t enough... or just in general places where I should have done a better job. Occasionally I may update something just because it needed to be updated. What I will make every effort to avoid is changing the meaning of content.

That means I may end up with information posted that I have changed my mind about. Maybe. That stuff I’ll leave. The important thing to me is I don’t want to back away and try to mislead you with some sort of I-never-said-that response if at some point I did say it. If it’s here, it’s something I said. Perhaps in some cases I meant it with a sense of humor that simply didn’t translate… sarcasm doesn’t work in print all the time. As I get older though, I could end up changing my mind… you keep learning, you keep developing new ideas, and every so often you don’t think of things exactly the same way. The main thing to understand is, I will go back and fix my mistakes… I will look around and change some colors or layouts… I will create new lists of friends and special sites I want you to know about… but I will try to keep the content the way it was initially intended to be read. And I’ll do that regardless of whether I look back on it thinking it was pretty well written, or, thinking it is now a piece of trash that shows exactly what an idiot I am.

All of that said, I’d like to hear from you. Whether a suggestion, comment, question or thought to share, just click below to send me an e-mail. Whenever possible, I will try to respond or incorporate your feedback.

Thanks for stopping by...
