I created this site, because I want to write things that force us to ask questions.
If you could pull this site off a shelf at Books-A-Million®, you’d find it in the Introspection section.
I believe in making connections to the widest audience possible without limitations to format and without censorship. I want to ask questions to understand. Most of all, I want to engage others and spark dialogue to solve problems, so I expect readers to contribute.
MikeWriting.com is the vehicle for these things.

Perspective to Offer is a humble explanation of what you will find here.
Recording My Essays talks about why I’ve made an audio option available.
What I use to build the site
I have two computers, a Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista and a MAC Mini running OS Liger or whatever the hell. The laptop is 8 years old; the mini is 6. They’re troopers. I’m guilty of doing some work at work too. I figure if we have the bandwidth to stream Pandora and the YouTubes, then we can support my writing habits – good old-fashioned rationalizations. For code-editing, I use Komodo Edit.
Some other tools and resources I use are below:
The Bluehost and AWeber banners have my affiliate info linked if you’re in the market. Ask me questions about any of this stuff (or the plug-ins I’m using); I’ve done some heavy duty shopping around to land on these. If you know of other sources, please share. Something I would have liked to find out before I bought my domain name from Google Domains is that Bluehost gives you a domain name free when you sign up with them. I’d already purchased my domain, so I missed out. Do you know what I could’ve done with all 12 of those dollars over the course of a year?? I wouldn’t be living in a two bedroom apartment. I’ll tell you that.
I like sharing information. Post in the comments or go to the Contact page to reach out.
Here’s a domain name checker. I kinda spazzed out the first time I went looking for available domain names. The site was really close to being called MikeWrites.co because the dotcom was taken. That “m” missing would’ve kept me up at night and melted my brain – ruined me. I’m not even joking. It all worked out. None of the other Michael Wright’s had this name yet except for in social media. #winning
Thanks for visiting. Enjoy the site.
