Hello From the Gutter (Please Vote)

Forgive me bloggers, for I have sinned. It has been over four months since my last blog entry and about 3 years since I changed my profile picture. I don’t even look like that any more.

And now I’m only back because I need something! I need you to vote for my son’s band who is competing in the same contest my illustrious band, The CheeseBergens competed in some months back….but they actually have a chance of winning! So let me put in this plug for them before I give you a reason for my despicable actions.

They are called Diabology and here’s the link:



By the way, for those who are wondering why I’ve been absent, it’s because instead of filling my dull, senseless hoursย  at work by blogging, I’m now doing freelance writing which I’m actually getting paid for.ย  It’s been a difficult choice, but blogging just ain’t paying the bills! (By the way, If you want to do the same, I suggest you check out Upwork.com.)

And now, to make this post just a bit less self-serving… a poem…

Look at me
A senseless hack
Gone too long
But now I’m back
Not for the good
Or for the greater
But just to ask
You all a favor
Surely I
Do not deserve
And you’ll all say
I have some nerve
Unfollow me
And call me damned
But maybe vote
For my son’s band.

Voting goes through the end of October only!!

  1. They are totally in the lead! Can we vote daily? I love their name but some of the other names are a bit much, lol. Your rhymes are hilariously honest, to the point, and self-serving–just how I like my poetry! CAN YOU JUST POST HERE ONCE A MONTH NOW? Sheesh, withdrawal city!

    • Thank you Stephanie! No, unfortunately you can only vote once in total (I should know, I’ve tried!) although you try on your cell phone and other computers.
      Once a month sounds like a good idea and I actually have a bit of a back stock of poetry I’ve been meaning to put up but just haven’t found the time. It’s nice to be missed….especially by such a prestigious writer as yourself!

    • You’re welcome. For the most part, it doesn’t pay that well but it’s good for supplemental income. There are some high paying jobs on there though. If you decide to do it, I can send you some referrals.
      Hey, did you vote for my kid’s band?

  2. I will vote, Marissa! Good luck to the youngster. I hope they win. I figured you were just busy with your music stuff. It is very difficult to have more than one creative endeavor without one of them suffering. A senseless hack?….you are so funny!

  3. Voted and will vote until the end.. if you showed up once a year (twice during leap years) it would still be cool. Got to pay those bills! Take care!

  4. I was voter #131 for Diabology! Go son of Cheesebergens!! ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽถ
    I debated about waiting until Friday the 13th to comment but really, Marissa! Their band is the Best!

  5. I have been gone for a little over 2 years. Read many books over that time but my reviews stopped. I finally logged back in today after the 2 years. Hope to get back reviewing books
