Welcome to Hoystory's New Digs

This year will mark the 20th anniversary of this blog. It started out on Google's "Blogger" platform, and has moved to and fro over the years, with different hosting providers, different software backends, different themes, but the same me. Hoystory: where we were For several years, Hoystory was hosted by GoDaddy. The price was reasonable […]

Hoystory redesign complete

I apologize for the relative radio silence here the past few very tumultuous weeks. What you see now is the result of that silence. This is the first redesign of Hoystory.com in the past four or five years. The web design system I had been using to customize the design and layout ceased to be […]

Politics on Facebook

For the record, I try to keep politics off my personal Facebook page. I'm a segregationist; Politics is on Twitter, what's going on in my life is on Facebook. (Watch someone take that out of context.) However, if other people are putting all their political garbage on Twitter, I will occasionally comment. Which brings us […]

Is there a place in the MSM for Conservatives?

Yesterday, part of my substitute teaching gig at the local high school was basically monitoring study hall for a couple periods and making sure that the classroom doesn't turn into "Lord of the Flies." As I monitored the class, I also continued looking for something resembling full-time work. Writing, reporting, public relations, marketing, editing, photography […]

Hoystory's New Venture: RestrictedArms.com

You might have noticed that things have quieted down around here. As Monty Python famously noted: "It's not dead. It's just resting." (Of course, in that case it was actually dead, but no matter.) Much of my time recently has been focused on my new venture: RestrictedArms.com. I encourage you all to check it out, offer […]

My Latest Radio Appearance

In case you missed it, you can listen to my latest radio appearance here. Dave Congalton and I talked about the death of Matt Frank, also known as SLOStringer, the recent libel verdict against Cal Coast News and the San Luis Obispo Tribune's failure to live up to its code of ethics. For the record, I sent the link […]

Coming this weekend

I just hit "send" on the email containing this weekend's column in the San Luis Obispo Tribune. The subject is faux Republican Donald Trump and why conservatives shouldn't vote for him. Writing the column late last night there were quite a few paragraphs that ended up on the proverbial cutting room floor. I'll craft those into […]

Expansion of the Hoystory media empire

The local newspaper, the San Luis Obispo Tribune, has "hired" me as their conservative columnist in an expansion of the Hoystory media empire. Hired in the "you're doing this for free" sense of the word. I'm normally opposed to working for free because that devalues my work product. (I don't want to think about how this blog […]
