Update on my Blogging

I'm sort of lucky I've kept this blog alive, although dormant for so many years. For anyone who has landed here looking for my other blog, I want to update you on why you're not finding it and if you so choose, where you can find me now.

On Christmas day, I attempted to log into to write a blog about my travels and thoughts on 2011 when I realized my blog was gone. I called and they informed me that the domain expired on Christmas and that they sold it to someone in Texas who had been bidding for it. Unfortunately, I never received notification that my domain was expiring and up for sale. I have at least 10 other domains which I renew throughout the year, but was never notified.

There's nothing I can do right now about it. I'm pretty sad. I've been writing about my life - the highs, the lows, etc - for quite some time on that blog name. Now someone who wants it because it's a valuable business move owns it. It sucks.


I have not decided if I'll start another blog. Part of me is heart broken and feels like I lost a piece of myself. Another part of myself thinks I shouldn't be dramatic and should just pick up where I left off. Either way, here's where I stand now.

My personal domain is

My Twitter handle is

and lastly, if you want to get in touch with me about anything, my email is james.r.moreau [at] gmail dot com.

Thanks for being courteous eyeballs for all these years. It means more to me than you might know.

Random Post--Update

I have not come check out this blog in a really long time. I'm curious who comes through to check out this blog still. I've gained so many new readers at my other blog and through my new job, but I sort of miss the days blogging on Blogger. These were the grassroots days when I got real busy with my underground career and writing development.

Update? Well, I packed my life up and moved to Madison, WI for a job at Brazen Careerist. I'm doing a job that I've always wanted for a company that I've always wanted to work for. The move was... interesting and far from perfect, but the experience has been great so far. Meeting awesome people and learning from some really smart professionals. I got to travel to Washington D.C. for business and have another role in the company that might allow me to travel even more (I can't wait to move to a big city like NYC, SF, D.C. or Chicago).

So far, my mom has come to visit for Thanksgiving to get away from some insanity that is associated with back home. A week later we had a close call and almost lost my grandmother to a heart attack last week which scared the hell out of me. I broke down last year when she broke her hip and I was convinced this was it. I'm thankful that I'll be seeing her and most-everyone else when I come home for the holidays for a few weeks.

A lot of nostalgia associated with this blog. Would love to re-connect with people who I haven't heard from in a while. If you're reading this, drop a comment or shoot me an email! I want to hear where you're at and how you're doing. I always wanted to move and live all over the country but I never wanted to disconnect with the people that mattered to me. So, yeah :-)

JR's Not So Literal Logging - Down But Not Out

Hi Readers!

Just wanted to highlight my move to

As many of you know, I've started a copywriting business and need to align my brand a bit. I won't be blogging under this URL anymore as far as I foresee.

I'd love to continue JR's Not So Literal Logging in another capacity, possibly on another host site because I've had a lot of fun blogging about various subjects that I care about.

Please feel free to visit JRM Gets Creative to keep up with my business happenings. If you have any questions on copywriting or would like to talk shop, find me there!

Please feel free to peruse my old entries and stay in touch! I'll be sure to continue my commenting and community interaction as well.

Best Regards,

James (JR) Moreau.

Reaction to Average Jyo's People Assessment

Today I want to link to a blog I've recently become a fan of; Average Jyo.

This particular blog post hit such a chord with me. I have a tough time dealing with people who are genuinely disinterested in anything I have to say. I am a people person, much like Jyo describes himself and I feel utterly disapointed when I cannot connect with people no matter how hard I try.

I know this is a fact of life, but it's also something that I dwell on. If I have a blah encounter with a person, I think, did I talk about myself too much? Did I not listen? Maybe both?

Either way, I know that I am a thoughtful conversationalist. I get excited when I talk with people and have something in common with them and I become really eager to share. I've also learned to reign in that eagerness a bit and be sure to have them talk about themselves a bit. It's a huge step towards developing a connection with someone rather than having a one-way interaction.

I hope you get to take the time to enjoy his vlog. Let me know what you think. I found him through Gary Vaynerchuk's recommendation and I'm glad I subscribed to his RSS feed.
