I'm Ben Zajdel, and I've been writing my whole life. I started blogging about four years ago, and I've come to enjoy it. I read all sorts of articles on how to make a blog successful--post frequently, focus on a specific subject, etc.--and tried to implement them. It didn't really work. So now I've decided to write about whatever I choose. With that in mind, you'll find all kinds of topics here. I write about sports, culture, and religion. I also record podcasts with people I think are interesting, including my cousin Danny (we mostly talk about sports). Finally, because I've worked in bookstores for most of my professional life, I give advice to authors on how to develop better relationships with bookstores in their community.
