about this blog

Hey there. Thanks for stopping by. I tend to make bad first impressions so don’t hold these next few moments against me.

This humble attempt at hopping on the blog bandwagon is mostly a side project for work. I’m looking to keep pace with the ever evolving world of the internets and sharpen the ‘ole writing skillz. I’ll post about random things that cross my mind and/or affect me on any given day. I guess this endeavor can also be considered a meager attempt at finding a new hobby and offer me a different avenue to express my often awkward and reclusive self.

And because it is mostly a side project for work, I reckon’ there should be some sort of tangible, measurable goal for doing all this. The Man is all about those sort of things. So my long term goal with this blog is to bounce this dude from the top of the Google results when you search my name.

Other then that, I’m not really sure why we are both here.  Let’s just see what happens shall we…


  1. Great blog! I agree with you about I-526. I have been thinking the same thing myself!

  2. For the record, I did bounce that America’s Most Wanted asshat with my name from the top spot.

  3. Christopher,

    How did you come up with Hipp Waters? I have owned the company, and name for 30yrs. When it is googled, there is your blog. Good writing. Let me know where you grabbed the name from.

    Not angry, curious.

    • I jammed with two buddies in college. Their last names were Hipp and Waters. Although we never technically formed a band, someone suggested that would be a cool name for it if we ever did. I always dug it and couldn’t think of anything better when coming up with a URL for this blog.

  4. Very great information thank you kindly
    Kathy Miller

  5. Great posts

    Thanks for posting!

  6. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. many thanks

    • WordPress.com has templates and themes for bloggers to use and set up themselves. This is a pretty common one. Just plugged in a Hubble image into the header and WordPress did most of the rest.

  7. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

  8. Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.

  9. Hello, I am not sure about what “dude” you want to “bounce”!? Is your name Christopher Donahue??? Try using your middle name. But be very careful with how you speak or blog about someone. Because the dude that I think your talking about is a childhood friend of mine!! So don’t be disrespectful or well you catch my drift!!!!! I’ll be watching you**!
