Riding Up The Thruway
I’m looking for readers and writers who will help to make the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette an even better magazine than it already is. This publication is over four years old and has over 3,000 pieces of content that will either entertain or inform you (or do both at the same time).
Hello hello hello, I’m the Old Soldier, the editor/publisher.
The Gazette is about serious writing and brazen sexuality. That’s a broad description, but it allows a wide range of topics to be studied with passion and intelligence.

Are you a blogger? Maybe you should read this post.
I’ve been a blogger for over ten years now. This blog is my most successful blog. It’s four years old. All the other blogs are deceased. What have I learned about blogging?
Okay, here are a few things.
There seems to be two kinds of bloggers. There are bloggers who blog about themselves and there are bloggers who blog about a subject. The bloggers who blog about themselves usually don’t get too many visits every day unless they are celebrities. The bloggers who blog about a subject can get hundreds on up to thousands of visits every day.
This blog is averaging 814 hits every day for November 2012. This blog is a subject blog. The subject is flash fiction. Of course, it covers lots of things (like blogging), but its core subject is flash fiction.
Bloggers who blog about themselves usually just want to share their lives with an audience, their pain and joy, their losses and accomplishments.
Subject blogs have to give useful advice, support or practical help to their core audience who are interested in the core subject of the blog.
Whatever kind of blogger you are, there are three things you need to be a happy blogger.
- You need to have a passion for your blog.
- You need to be able to express yourself clearly.
- You need to set aside time to blog on a relatively regular schedule.
These three things may seem simplistic and self-evident, but all three are necessary and are the bare minimum for being a happy blogger.
This is the Old Soldier blogging somewhere near the University of Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is a blog of serious writing and brazen sexuality.
