The Militant Negro™

The lovely and talented Ms. Sally Cronin who runs a first rate blog called Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life has started a new series…..I’ll just let you read all about it….

Here is a link to Ms. Sally’s original post….

The new series of the Smorgasbord Sunday Interview – Getting to Know You!

Welcome to the new series of the Smorgasbord Sunday Interview –  Getting to Know You…and to show you how it will look when you participate.. I am going first.

As writers we tend to share aspects of our work in interviews, such as our blog posts, books and characters, and that is very important. However, sometimes we don’t get to share some of the other aspects of our personalities.

I was looking at some of the blogging award posts and decided that for this new series, I might ask some of the questions…

EDC – Mad Week!

It’s not like me to write anything personal but this a bit of a mad week so please  excuse my lack of keeping up with your posts – I like to like what I like and comment here and there – but I see my ‘Reader’ filling and that I’m missing so much of what you all do. It’s not intentional and in no way a sign of indifference, I just need to be doing other things for just a little while. Normal service (whatever that is ?!) will be resumed in a few days – I hope! Eric.

NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2018 Challenges on the Go Dog Go Cafe

Are you into NaPoWriMo? If so plenty going on at the Go Dog Go Cafe throughout April ….

Go Dog Go Café


For National Poetry Month in 2003, American poet Maureen Thorson pledged on her blog to write a poem a day for the month of April and invited other poets with blogs to join her. Thorson continues to sponsor this annual project and the amount of participating poets continues to grow. National Poetry Writing Month or NaPoWriMo has spread so successfully through the world poetry community that many now refer to it as Global Poetry Writing Month or GloPoWriMo.

Christine, who has been struggling with writer’s block, is participating in NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2018 to try to get herself back in the habit of writing daily and challenges you to join her. To support all the members of the Go Dog Go Cafe community who are participating, we will be hosting several special features in April to inspire you.

  1. On Wednesdays, Christine (and other interested Baristas) will be sharing some of their favorite poems by…

Spam Warnings

It looks like quite a few of us are getting these … don’t know the risk or what the point is – does anyone?


Started yesterday.

Suddenly folk with web site addresses started to ‘like’ comments I had made on other folks’ posts. Counted 15 so far. The majority end with .’ru’ (So if I follow the guidelines of some folk after the Salisbury poisoning it must be the UK govt or the CIA)…But seriously though

Checked on the Community Forum, seems to have started in the last week, and WP do not appear to have any response other than to tell people to check with the Forum.

Don’t interact is my advice.

Question is?

Should the person who attracts the ‘like’ or the person who has originated the post take any action.

If I knew how to delete the durn things I would

Important Information about Promote Yourself Mondays and Pay It Forward Thursdays

A few tweaks from the Go Dog Go Cafe – we’d hate to miss you on a Monday or a recent post of someone else you’ve liked on a Thursday – please check your link works on both days – we read all of them that open!

Go Dog Go Café

We are really excited about the enthusiastic response we have received to Promote Yourself Mondays and Pay It Forward Thursdays.  We enjoy the diversity of the writing and discovering new talent. The response has been so enthusiastic, in fact, that it has been hard for us to keep up with reading the posts and announcing the weekly Barista Favorite in a timely way.

We have a couple of favors to ask of you.

  • Please make sure that the pieces you are linking to are 600 words or less.
  • Please limit your posting to one link to one piece of writing each week on the Promote Yourself Monday posts. If you post more that one piece of writing, the second post will be deleted. We are sometimes a little more flexible with Pay It Forward Thursdays as the volume of posts is much lower.
  • Please do not post links to recipes!…
