The End of One Man's Pony Ramblings · 3:07am Mar 7th, 2018

More stuff on the blog, but that's the big bit: after a month-long hiatus, it's time for me to acknowledge that I'm not currently able to review or keep a schedule at the level I attempt to set for myself.

I'll still be around here, I'm not leaving the fandom or anything like that.

Oh hey by the way I've been reviewing fanfics for five years now · 4:23pm Oct 21st, 2016

One Man's Pony Ramblings turned five today. That's 782 posts, about 850 total story reviews, just shy of a million individual pageviews, and 49 pictures and screenshots of Carrot Top.

Review Roundup: October 26th-November 6th · 12:42am Nov 9th, 2015

Hello, you several people who followed me over the last week! I assume you're mostly here because Seattle's Angels featured Wyrmlysan. Well, if you didn't already know, I don't just write ponyfic: I also review it on my blog, One Man's Pony Ramblings. So, if you want to get the complete Chris experience, go read all my posts over there! It's only about...

It's been two weeks, and that means it's time to find out what you've been missing if you don't get over to my blog on your own every now and then!

...What, you want more than one sentence of introduction? Then you should go to one of the actual posts; this is just here to show you what's going on over at One Man's Pony Ramblings. Speaking of, here's the last two weeks worth of posts:

Happy pre-Thanksgiving, everyone! Remember, we're just a few days away from the point where you can start putting up Christmas decorations and singing Christmas carols in public without being a bad person. If you've made it this long, you can hold out until Friday!

Review Roundup: August 22nd - September 8th PLUS: New Story! · 12:47am Sep 12th, 2016

New news first: As those of you who are writeoff-oriented may already know, I recently took part in the latest minific round. My story did quite well over there, and I was planning to put it in my microfic collection... but as I tried to flesh it out to address some comments I got, it crept over the 1000 word mark, so I decided to publish it as its own piece. Behold!

The first two weeks of the fantasy football season, I lost both of my games... and I lost both of them by a single point :ajbemused:

But this week, we're trying something new! Specifically, we're trying "get your fanny beat in a blowout;" as I type this, Jordy Nelson just scored a last-second touchdown in the Packers/Bengals game to make my fantasy score 75-107... and my opponent still has two players left, to my none. Looks like it's gonna be a winless September.

Hey, what with my vacation, I let this get away from me. Well, no more! If you've been impatiently waiting for an update on what's been going on at my review blog, One Man's Pony Ramblings, then wonder no more! Here comes nearly a month's worth of what you missed, including both the usual mix of reviews and commentary, and guest posts from while I was gone! You'll definitely want to give the latter a look, if you haven't already; there's

Review Roundup: August 4th-September 12th · 2:50am Sep 13th, 2015

Today's Review Roundup covers three weeks, instead of two. Why? Because I had it in my mind that this week was two weeks out from the last post, rather than last week. Granted, all I would have needed to do to see the error of my ways was look at the dates involved, but obviously I didn't do that. Well, here's an extra-large look back at what's been going on at One Man's Pony Ramblings recently:

Remember to get your March Madness brackets in this week! Well, do it right now if you're in one of those moronic "you have to pick the play-in games, too" pools, but regardless, this is the week to pretend you've watched a single college basketball game all year! This is the week to nod sagely when someone mentions "RPI" and act like you know what it stands for! This is the week to pretend you aren't just picking teams based on whose mascot is prettiest!

Sorry that this is coming out a few days "late;" between a barbershop chorus leadership conference I went to over the weekend and MLK day, I just didn't get around to putting this roundup together until tonight. Still, it's not like the fanfic reviews on my blog have suddenly become obsolete since then, right? Right. So here's a quick recap of what I've reviewed in the last two weeks:

Since the Iowa caucuses start tomorrow, this seems like a good time to remind all of you who 1) are U.S. citizens, and 2) are over 18, or will be by November: don't forget to get registered to vote! This site can help you out with telling if you're registered, and finding out how to fix that if you aren't. And don't forget to vote in your primary or attend your caucus; if you're not sure when to

Do you ever have people start noticing a particular story of yours, seemingly for no reason? Because I've had four or five people add The Showmare's Tale to their libraries in the past couple of days, and I have no idea why. I mean, I guess it was probably linked to somewhere, but I don't know where. If any of you happen to have the answer, I'm always curious to see what people are saying about my writing, even if it's some of my older stuff.

I was going to post this on Sunday... but I've been a busy lad all weekend. Blerg.

BUT! On the un-blergiest note possible (and if you're already a regular visitor to One Man's Pony Ramblings, you've already seen this, but it's worth looking at again): behold!

Time for your twice-a-month roundup! As an early heads-up, the next roundup will be a few days late, coinciding with my return from the vacation I leave on bright and early tomorrow. Plenty of good stuff in the interim, though, as you'll either find out on Monday (if you go check the blog then) or in two weeks (if you wait for the next roundup post over here). Without further adieu, here's what I've reviewed since I last posted a FiMFic blog:

It's Tour de France time! That magical month when I get up early every morning, even though I don't have to go to work. Thank goodness I don't live on the west coast; I don't think I could handle getting up at 5:00 AM (earlier, on mountain stages!) day after day without even the promise of a paycheck to reward me for it.

Those of you who keep up with my blog, One Man's Pony Ramblings, already know that I recently spent two weeks on vacation, and was fortunate enough to get a bevy of talented horsewordsmiths to fill in with a mix of reviews, advice, and even a little commentary while I was gone. And if you don't keep up with my blog... well, if it's because you don't care for my reviews, then this sounds like the kind of fortnight that's just made for

Have you been doing something with your life other than obsessively refreshing my blog, desperate to know whether or not I'd put up a new post, nevermind the fact that it updates punctually at 12:00AM Central on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays? Shame on you! However, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you had something truly important that was distracting you from your vital task of keeping up to date on the latest Chris ramblings. Maybe you were saving orphans
