So one day I thought "What if there were a way for golfers to hear about
things they wanted to hear about when they wanted to hear about it...instead
of just waiting for someone to write about something the writer was interested
that idea sprang to life "Lipouts," an interactive column where (for the most part)
I answered to you! I've always tried to give it a little bit of a twist, look at things from a
different point of view, make you think, and (hopefully) keep it humorous...
The original idea behind "Lipouts"
was to provide a way for
you--the reader--to provide topics you think are interesting, pose questions related to
golf, etc. I just gave you my honest opinion on the matter and try to keep it
conversational and enjoyable to read. My goal has always been to write to you in the same style I
would use if we were sitting down face to face and talking about the same
topics. No hidden agendas or boring rhetoric--just plain English! One thing you can count on is that I will always give you my
honest opinion--whether or not it is the same as the popular opinion of the day.
years, however, like everything else--the column changed.
Deadlines seemed to come at me faster and faster from multiple
editors and publishers and even some online sources. Luckily,
I was very busy with my real job too and it was getting difficult to
keep up. So I decided to take a break from the regular column
and work on a fictional book I had dancing around in my head for a
few years (it's not done yet--it's still dancing) and then found
Twitter! Now I can "tweet" ideas and thoughts instantly and
from time to time post more rambling thoughts on my blog at
blog.lipouts.com on my own schedule.
been reading the column, thank you. If not--well, then you
probably wouldn't be here reading this would you? A collection of
stories from the first two years of "Lipouts" is now available
in paperback and as an eBook (find links at
www.moonbaymedia.com), so feel
free to send me an email and follow me on Twitter @lipouts for updates.
I'll always give you my two cents worth--sorry, no
change will be provided!
