About This ‘n That

    Welcome to the weblog of John L Bradfield, a forum for various interests, reflections, contemplations, observations, comments and musings on an almost limitless variety of subjects.

    It is for an all-too-short moment in time that we’re just visitors on this beautiful, wonderful, challenging and sometimes frightening world.

    “For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.”
    — 1 Chronicles 29:15

    Courage, honesty, integrity, hope and love inspire me and I’m a searcher after the truth, probably just as you are.

    You’re welcome. Thanks for visiting this website.

    Guest Posting Guidelines

    We welcome and encourage guest authors and will consider well-penned contributions with genuine and informative content on almost any topic. These guidelines may help to smooth the process:

    • Submission:
      Email Guest Posts to john [at] johnlbradfield [dot] com either as a .DOC attachment or paste your content into the body of your email in HTML format.
    • Exclusivity:
      Your submission must not have been published elsewhere online. Duplicate posts are harmful to site rankings and if detected, will be removed without notice. If your post is not used you are free to submit elsewhere.
    • Topic:
      A broad range of topics are suitable for this website.

      Ideal length is 400 to 700 words. More than 1000 words might best be presented in two or more parts. A post of less than 400 words is probably too light but will be considered on merit. Please credit images or videos with appropriate links.
    • Links:
      If it’s relevant, you’re welcome to link back to your blog within the post. Subtlety often works best. Please don’t include affiliate links in your post. Rather link to a page with affiliate links on your own site.
