Help to lighten up :-)

Anette showed me the range of smilies (emoticons) that can be used in comments and posts on WordPress (and Facebook). And I realized that these could serve well to lighten up some of the more serious discussions on my blog. While many discussions are light and fun and really chill here, some can get a bit heated. Especially when I post about Scientology. So, here are the range of faces that you can use to sprinkle and dress up your comments here. Enjoy 🙄

Your soapbox

A soapbox is a raised platform on which one stands to make an impromptu speech, often about a political subject. The term originates from the days when speakers would elevate themselves by standing on a wooden crate originally used for shipment of soap or other dry goods from a manufacturer to a retail store.

The floor is open. Have your say. Anything goes. Throw out an idea and see if it garners discussion.

Feel free to ask


When the traffic gets high, when posts get more than 500 or even a 1000 comments, I am bound to miss questions from my readers.

I want to answer your questions, and to ensure you are not left without an answer, I propose you ask any questions you may have to me as comments to this blog post.

Just add your question as a comment here and I will get back to you with an answer. Ask anything – from my views on life, IT, Scientology, my favorite HP calculator, music, art, preferences in any part of life or whatever else you may have on your mind. Do not hold back. I am not shy.

This post is not an arena for long discussions – or I may again miss some questions buried in long threads. Interesting topics may instead earn separate blog posts.

Happy New Year!

The craziest year in my life is nearing the end.

Never been this happy 🙂

Thank you all for inspiring me and letting me inspire you.

We just turned 25000 comments on this blog since its inception 2,5 years ago. But the quality of your comments easily outshines the quantity.

Love you guys & gals.

Have a crazy-good 2013!
