About B&P

The first blog I can remember reading regularly was memepool.com.  It’s still there but hasn’t been updated in over a year.  Then I discovered J-Walk Blog and was hooked.   Like many of you I was forwarding funny things people sent me.  I always worried about whether some wouldn’t want to receive this stuff, so I decided to start Bits & Pieces.  The name comes from a column I wrote in a newsletter for a club I belonged to.

Bits & Pieces began on March 31, 2002 over at BitsandPieces1.blogspot.com but posting was sporadic for the first couple of years.  Somewhere around 2005 I began to get serious and started posting daily.

I moved B&P to WordPress and it’s own domain name BitsandPieces.us in early 2008.  August of 2009 saw the start of Bits of Wisdom and Naughty Bits saw light in April of 2010 after a rough start as Bad Bits.

April also was the great B&P hack which cleaned out the website.  We’re still in the process of rebuilding the site and still have hopes of getting all the lost posts back.

  1. Hey Jonco,

    I don’t know if anyone has submitted this but the Marmaduke cartoon
    from a few weeks ago was hilariously un-subtle. Look, it’s a Boner Tree!

    Cheers, Brian


  2. Hey Jonco,

    Thanks for all the smiles…

    You’ve introduced many fine blogs… Do you think you could fix the link to The Presurfer? as much as I like My Confined Space…..


  3. Site feels very sluggish today…
    Could it have anything to do with this ?

  4. Hello, a friend saw one of my cartoons posted on your site but the name and logo had been erased. Can you please attribute the O’Possum illustration to me and link my website? And kindly do so for other artists in future.

    • Many times I get content and I don’t know the original source. I usually credit where I find it or who sent it to me. I don’t remove that info from images. I updated the image and credit. Thanks for letting me know of your content.

  5. Jonco,

    I’ve been with you several years, probably from the beginning. Today, for some reason, I’m unable to get into Bits of Wisdom. Every time I try it says ‘You Are Banned.’ What’s up with that? Something on your end or mine?

    • After a couple people told me that they were “banned” I logged on and low and behold, I was banned too. After a couple of hours of trying to figure it out I got tech support involved. Somehow, something got changed that made you HAVE to type in www(dot) before the bitsofwisdom.org. You didn’t have to do that before. So, they changed it so it should work either way now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  6. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was wondering what all is required to get set
    up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice
    would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
